    As a Military Working Dog Kennel Master, I recommend you buy a brush called "Furminator" and brush daily until the hair you get starts to reduce. Then brush "as needed" but no less than once a week. The brush is expensive, but well worth it. I have 10 dogs in my kennels and we brush them at least every other day. Just my .02 cents worth.

    It is most likely not the shampoo, but something in the diet.

    Shedding is sometimes a symptom of something else going on. There may be something in his diet that he is allergic to, or something like that.

    If you look closely at his skin, does it look normal? Not reddish or even overly pink? No rashes, or excess scratching?

    ]


    Yeah, he needs to stay away from the cat food. Cats and Dogs have very different nutritional needs.

    Stress can also cause them to shed a lot.

    The brush is the best defense....I got 2 115lb Labs and they shed a lot, but the brush seems to keep the hair shedding down a lot....

    I agree, I have a Husky and a Malamute that must be brushed at least a couple times a week. When they start to loose the undercoat (couple times a year) I can brush every day and fill up trash bags with hair. Where does it all come from?

    Diet also has alot to do with it.

    See if you can find some Malaseb. I have been using on my Amstaff for about 8 years. he has skin allergies abd the vet recommended it. t is not cheap but works well.
