x2. They make an actual comb that gets the lower layers and the shampoos are used by quite a few groomers. Good stuff. You can also just take him to a groomer.

Don't let it in the house.

Y'all will really bond while watching tv together on the couch and the wife is outside.

FUNNY!!!

I got a black one coming in 3 weeks. I have owned two black labs and they do shed badly and a couple times a year the "blow" their hair, you think they will go bald !!!

All folks I asked your questions too all point to the furminator. You can hook it to your vacuum if you don't want little yellow clumps of hair floating all over your yard.

Also most Petco's and PetSmarts provide this service in their grooming offerings.

Maybe your wife can take your pup??? banana

Just take your dog to a groomer every 6 weeks. $35-$50 for a bath and fluff. They'll get all that dead coat out so it's not on your floor and furniture.

I bought my wife a Neato xv21 robot vacuum. Happy wife, happy life. I agree with the Furminator too though.

As mentioned above Furminator Brush and i take mine to Pet smart and have him professionally bathed on the Furminator program,cuts down about 90% of the shedding. The wife is happy happy as well. What ever you do do not have his hair trimmed or cut it will be worse when it grows out
