    Im fed up with hoovering the stuff up. I brush and it makes no difference I just dont seem to be getting anywhere. I may love her dearly but she is driving me mad at the minute!

    Invest in a blaster dryer, it blasts all the dead hair out from the undercoat. You'll get more hair out in 5 mins of blastering that you could ever hope to get from an hours brushing.

    industrial amounts of 'nair'? :lol:

    with Poppy we used to spend 2 lots of 30 mins a day 'plucking' her in the garden during a moult, it removed most of the 'almost loose' stuff as well as the already loose stuff

    if you throw it in the garden I bet the birds will adore you though - very snuggy nests

    Sounds silly but I hoover the Mals occasionally - doesn't get the hair out though, have to get a good prong brush for that. It does get everywhere though, rolls through the house like tumbleweed and no way can we wear black in this house. :rolleyes:

    After just one grooming session - they've all finished blowing their coats now. :)

    I've been grooming Dory and Ben in the garden recently. Then I put rolled up balls of fur into the hedge and take the dogs indoors to watch all the birds coming to collect their nice furry nesting materials :)

    The funny thing with these dogs is how remarkably slim they look when they've blown their coat. You think - oow they're looking a bit tubby, then they blow and you think - oow they're looking a bit skinny, lol.

    In fact it's nice to see them looking slim because so often we can't feel their ribs but then with all their undercoat it's not surprising really. You have to really feel hard for their ribs but once blown you can feel them easily. ;)

    Flynn ends up looking like a scraggy old wolf because he has rather long legs compared to the other two - all tatty and rough!
