Allie sheds a ton (she a german shepherd mix). If I am good about brushing her every day and vacuuming at least every other day the hair is kept in check. If I slack though there is hair everywhere within a few days. Today she got a bath and a really good brush out and I got enough hair off of her to make a small dog, lol. I have found just a basic greyhound comb does a great job at keeping up with the hair. I also have a mars coatking that I use once in awhile but I don't like to use it to often because I am afraid of damaging her topcoat.
