I have never had a long haired dog before so this whole shedding bussiness is new to me. I brush him and I end up with another dog there is so much hair. He doesn't mind being brushed anymore so he will sit and let me groom him. I am inhaleing hair where ever I go since I live on a farm and all of the animals are shedding. Can't wait until spring when this shedding bussiness is over.
