Jolie is still growing and starting to get longish tufts but no trouble yet. I knew a guy with a BC many years ago thats what first endeared the breed to me. he kinda brushed his dog with a shop vac the dog loved it.
I brush with a slicker everyday.
I have shared my life with a golden and a GSD, now they are shredders lol. Just kept on top of it, brush every morning.
Oh and never wore black when I had the golden, lol
Trifan, thank you, he was dearly loved.
My collies don't shed much but I learned a lot from owning a GSD. If you need to brush indoors put a sheet on the floor (I like flannel the best) to catch the fur. Brush often, vacuum often. Also, all the dog beds in my house are covered with blankets that get washed once a week and I think this helps to keep the fur from taking over the house.
My shepherds didn't drop hair all over the house like my BCs, but I got way, way more out when brushing them.
Gotta love 'em.
