Mohunter told me Yellow labs shed more than chocolate or black labs, thoughts on that? Molly sure did shed a lot, that's for sure. She has a skin condition tho, started trying supplements last few year, never got it working tho...

What about CBRs? They shed less?

Also considering labadoodle.

Molly's hair was a real problem, I can't have that again. I need a solution.

I don't know about CBR shedding but they feel like a brillo pad when you pet them...great duck dogs no disputing that.

I've got a chocolate and wife says this is the last lab. Best dog in the world but she can't stand the hair and won't consider a dog being outside.

I suppose if I don't hang it up after this one dies I'll end up with a Boykin.

CBRs shed just as bad as a Lab we have tile floors and with 2 of them we vacuum daily. If your considering a Labradoodle than a CBR is probably not for you. I'd stick with a Lab.

Have a cbr, she sheds like crazy..
For a non shedding hunting dog your probably gonna need to look at a Boykin, it's my understanding they don't shed, or minimally shed. Maybe check a wired haired griff too??

While my CBR absolutely sheds, I don't think he sheds anywhere close to the amount that my labs have.

having hunted cbr's all my life, I can't imagine one being a full time house dog. mine come in the camphouse(wood floors and wafer wood walls) but they shed...bad. if I was looking for a house dog/hunting dog combo id go with a springer, water spaniel or boykin. when trained properly good for any type of bird hunting, and good in the house/with kids etc

The only solution here is to get a black lab.

I've got a buddy who has a springer spaniel and his dog is a hunting mojo. Dog is unreal. Listens know hand signals voice commands whistle commands, loves the water, couldn't be a better dog. Def a breed to consider

Boykins shed pretty bad by the way for those suggesting one because they don't shed.

If you are considering a CBR read up on how to train them. Socialization is very important and they aren't the same as a lab. I'm not saying they are better or worse just different.

Please don't get a labradoodle

PLEASE don't get a labradoodle. I have met many, and never met a well trained one. THey are friendly beyond belief, but very tough to train. IMO, hair is less hassle than a labradoodle.

The real trick is getting a new lab now, so the hair amount increases with the 2 dogs. Then, heaven forbid your older dog passes to hunting heaven, the hair amount on the floor decreases because you only have 1 shedding dog again. It FEELS like you have less of a shedding problem, and your spouse gets used to the lesser amount. But of course in time it become apparent you have a lab, and there is always hair. But, your wife has fallen deeply in love with this fur child, and forgives it anyways. She may blame you again for getting a lab, but worth it.

That's how I do it...but I also get put on vacuuming duty a lot....

Good luck in your search for your next dog.

Black lab and a roomba. We have 3 and they all live inside and with one roomba it pretty much takes care of all of the dog hair. Our house is on the small side (1675 sq ft), if you had a bigger home you might need 2 roombas or just keep the dog limited to a portion of the house and leave the roomba in that portion.

Duck buster my lab past nov 2015.

Thanks for all the feedback. The Boykin is a dog I have not thought about. When I trained Molly, had a pro help me with FF, and he also trained Boykin, so I got to watch him work those dogs and they were good. I just don't like the way they look, but I might look past that, the little research I have done they do seem to shed less than a lab.

I would love to get a small lab, Molly was bigger than what I prefer. But I would brush her once a week, and my wife cleaned the floors twice a week (and I got an ear full each time lol), and still hair everywhere. I even had Molly trained to stay on the tile (kitchen and sun room), she stayed off the wood and carpet. And the hair was still a pain. It's been real nice not having hair everywhere. Really does not bother me, but my wife likes a clean house. And I hate cleaning floors.
