My dog has a little bit of a shedding problem.
- Okay, it’s actually a big shedding problem.
He sheds enough for two dogs at the least! It makes vacuuming and sweeping a weekly affair by necessity. Sometimes, I might need to even do it twice a week, especially if I was having company. It’s funny when I have friends over and we get to talking about my dog and I mention all the shedding and they look around and say it doesn’t seem that bad. It took a lot of work to create that illusion! The dog fur and dander also does a number on my HVAC unit. I have to get that air filter changed out a lot more often than if I didn’t have my precious pooch. He’s entirely worth it, but it can be frustrating sometimes. I also need to schedule air duct cleanings more often. He cannot help it that he’s causing the air quality to go down in my home and I feel that it’s my responsibility to make sure that the HVAC unit isn’t taxed too hard by his shedding. If a few more HVAC cleaning and maintenance fees is part of what it takes to enjoy my climate control system and my dog, I’m willing to pay that price. I don’t want to think about a future without him, but if I do ever get another animal, I’m going to seriously consider getting a pet that does not shed near as badly or at all. Still, life is too good with my dog for me to care all that much about all the shedding!
