The dog hair struggle is real when…
…the top of your
It was a nice, sunny day. I decided to let the dogs out so they could play outside. As I put my shoes on by the door, I looked over at the end table. Beams of sunlight highlighted the situation. This is how it is just a few days after I dusted off the table.
…your dryer lint trap has more dog hair than lint:
That was after washing and drying one load of clothes. It’s a hundred times worse when I wash and dry dog blankets.
…your shirt lets everyone know you have dogs.
Ever look down when you’re out somewhere and see your shirt is loaded with hair? You swear it wasn’t that way before you left. It’s as if a dog hair cloud followed you and rained down on your shirt in the car.
…your black pants are never solid black.
I swear black pants are magnets for dog hair. If there is one hair in the air it will seek out and attach itself to black pants. But seriously, one hair? HA! More like a million.
Compound that with my dogs’ insane desire to rub up against me or want in my lap when I’m wearing black pants. Do your dogs do that too? Or is it just mine?
…it takes 11 roller sheets to clean off 2 clothing items:
That was after I had washed and dried the scarf and pants. I really don’t know what I’d do without lint rollers. They are a must-have for dog owners.
…you warn people before they enter your house:
I couldn’t resist getting this cute Hope You Like Dog Hair mat to greet my friends and family when they visit. Might as well make light of the situation. Thank goodness most of them have dogs too.

Best vacuum for dog hair:
1 – The Miele Cat & Dog vacuum is the best for carpet and rugs. It also works nicely for vacuuming upholstery.
