My friend Jackie is allergic to dog hair but her boyfriend has a rat terrier and the dog makes her miserable especially when it sheds. Her boyfriend is always brushing it and yet he still sheds. I don't know what to tell her. He gives him baths and brushes him constantly. But yet he still sheds.
Is there anything I can do to keep the dog from shedding a lot?
p.s. it would seem like the dog would be bold how much he sheds is it because of allergies or what??? I have no idea.
I own two Ratties myself and I got to tell you that they shed. They don't just shed in clumps....oh no! Their tiny little hairs get on everything and are hard to get out. I have tried everything myself. The best thing I found to help is getting the Rattie on a good dog food, use shed stopping shampoo (like already suggested) and brushing with a rubber curry (gets the dead skin too). In the end, the shedding may never be "cut down" enough. In that case, I suggest allergy medication. Good luck!
