Please I need advice, I need help....my shelties are the best thing I have, but I can hardly manage with their fur! even with a dotzen of combs! They are now one year old and I think they are shedding since months ago, I don't know if it is the way it works for ever or if it's only because this is the first year for them and they have been changing the puppy fur into the adult and now they have started shedding...but it's unending! I had a chow so I'm quite used to the shedding periods and to clean the house, clothes and every thing dialy....but with this little guys I do it since months ago...maybe since the first day I bought a Dyson super-handly-vacuum, the best staff you can buy with two shelties at home. I clean the sofas, the bed (they are allowed to sleep with us) forniture, floor and every thing...but in hours I will start again. I comb them twice a week to help the house to be cleaned, but I spent so much time in combing, cleaning, walking, and ALL with them, that I have the conclusion that shelties are for people unemployed or something similar. I work outside, have two children, well...three with my husband, so sometimes I'm upset! The female is combed in only half an hour, but the male is show quality...so he needs a lot of time to be completely combed. I suposse the warm weather in Spain doesn't help to fix the shedding periods in a short period of time... Please tell me your experiences with your furbies... Thanks to all!
