Thread: in the house or out

    Default in the house or out

    hey everybody my mom is talking about letting me bring my blacj lab in the house finally she can sleep in my room so i was wondering how bad do they shed and who has had problems with them sheding thanks.

    Labs NEVER shed. Never.

    Anyway, that's what you tell your Mom. By the time she figures it out, it will be too late, your Mom will love her, and she will already be entrenched as an inside dog.

    I have Chessies, but have kept Labs here, and can truthfully say that Labs don't shed near as much as Chessies do.

    That having been said, there's some things you can do. You can start by brushing your dog *outside* every day. This not only keeps that hair down, but your dog can go longer between baths, and you will be hands-on with your dog every day. You can identify lumps, bumps, ticks, etc. Check the ears while you are at it. That way, you can stop an ear infection before it gets too far.

    Offer to do the vacuuming yourself. Your dog, your dog's hair, your responsibility.
