Tip of the Week

Dog Hairdoghair-2

Last week’s tip got me thinking about all the dog hair I find.  Did you ever wonder why dogs large & small shed so much more than humans?  Turns out that unlike humans, who have a 1 follicle, 1 pore, and 1 hair, a dog has multiple follicles, 1 pore, and multiple hairs.  Plus dogs grow new hair every few days or a week.    Even a small, short-coated dog can shed as much per square inch as a large dog.   The way to help keep all this shedding under control is to brush them.  Once a week will help to greatly reduce the amount of hair around your house.
