How often do you brush your dogs, wash their dog beds?

Do you have a set schedule or what?

  • I have two wonderful and large dogs. They both have fairly long coats and shed constantly. Can anyone shed some light on what kind of routine they have or their thoughts. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't brush at all lately and give her a bath every Sunday. I have wood and tiles floors, so I can feel all the dirt when I walk barefoot. And if it's bad enough, I have to brush it off the bottom of my feet before I get in bed. So, I generally sweep every other day and vacuum and mop once a week.

    I haven't washed her new bed since she got it a month ago. How would even wash something like this?

      One of our dogs has one that is pretty similar. I just throw it in the washing machine and put it on the bulk cycle. Granted my machine doesn't have the big agitator in the middle like some models so it's a bit easier for me. The other dog bed goes to the washateria as it is just way too big for our machine. Plus he is the dog that tends to shed the most and I don't want his hair killing another washing machine drain motor.

    I brush my Husky/Malamute and vacuum my house daily. Otherwise he is just absolutely unmanageable. I have several beds and I wash them about once a week. Usually just do a huge wash on Sunday.

    Getting a furminator has helped so so much, I highly recommend getting one.

      From the looks of the replies I'll just have to buckle down and be a constant broom guardian. I was hoping if I brushed him often enough that it might help with the hair around the house. Guess I'll just have to experiment with it for awhile to see what I can do. The furminator looks like the teeth are pretty close together. Do you have any problems pulling it through the fur?

        I haven't had a problem, its a little more intense than brushing my own hair but not extreme.

        Eventually you won't have to brush as much because there won't be as much loose hair. It's a cool little brush.

    This just depends on the individual dog. I have a shar pei/beagle mix that isn't very big but sheds a lot and gets a strong "dog" smell after a while. We vacuum every few days and bathe her whenever she does a lot of running or rough play outside. That much exercise just makes her stink. It can be annoying but she's well behaved and fuckin adorable so it's not that bad.
