Customer Question

Hi we have a beagle mix just turned a year old. He has had all his shots seems to be very healthy. He weighs about 35 lbs. He eats iams medium breed puppy food. He gets bathed once a week. Brushed every other day and yet we can't pet or hold him without getting completely covered in hair. I'm talking just one rub down his head to neck getting a hand full of hair. Is there something I can do to help him.

It sounds like the next step is to use a brush to cut back on shedding. Furminator brushes work very well for doing just that. Try this one meant for short coated dogs with straight fur
