I have a Blue Heeler and he sheds like crazy. I know people say different dog foods and other things can reduce shedding. I have the Furminatior brush and the kit and i use that often. Any other suggestions?

The Furminator shampoo before you brush helps release tons of shedding hair and Salmon oil put in your pet's food also helps reduce shedding.

Frequent brushing and add brewers yeast to his diet. That also helps with shedding. It sounds like you are doing just about all you can do! Good luck.

I use the Furminator too and it really helps. I also give my dog a multi vitamin that has brewers yeast and omega fatty acids which helps with shedding and keeps his skin and coat healthy. But shedding can never be completely elimated so I just bought that Bissell Pet hair vacuum... it works great! :)
If your dog seems to be shedding more than he should I would take him to the vet... he could have a medical problem that is causing this.
