I also cover the places they like with sheets which I can then just shake out.

But mostly I don't worry about it. I tell my husband that if I didn't have him and my dogs, I'd have a perfectly clean boat, but who wants that...
Karen,

So true. What a great quote.

Ok As above my dog dumping fur must have been an anxiety reaction to the gale warning? I think that was pretty indisputable photographic evidence of the fact he felt land was the best place to be at that moment. That is, there is probably even more evidence about their intuition as far as the weather and seasons are concerned? Almost like having another barometer onboard?

Best thing is he has short hair and the grooming and a few subsequent rubs seems to have done the trick.

Within the culture In the US we are led to believe that mice crave cheese; eating turkey makes you sleepy; vitamin C prevents colds; wet heads and drafts cause colds; but there are no studies that confirm that any of these are true. So, if you don't want dog hair, Barnakiel has the only solution.......no dog. We brush, bathe, comb, vacuum and I clean hair from filters and drain covers. I don't have a big problem with it, but it comes with any dog.
Teacher can we now put away our biology book?

Sure that cute little thing is a dog? I was kinda thinking he might be some sort of mighty Gedi Yoda offspring.

One silly but serious question: does s/he get sunburnt?

In passing, I must say you have a great blog! A lot of positive info...,,

Maybe you are having even more trouble finding one that will resemble the owner?

Thankfully our bilges are dry so again they also get the hoover treatment.

Finally I find it easier when the yacht is dry, then the hairs stick to a piece of tissue and can easily wiped up.

Would we be without the dog? nope, he is a real character and the yacht association now all know him when we meet up.

Angus is currently running around our kitchen at home, not a happy teddy bear as he has just had a bath. You don't want to see the bath though

We haven't tried this little bundle of fur yet

Pete
All dogs molt just like humans there is no such thing ! Dander from evey living thing ! Skin or hair theres no way around it ! We all shead no matter the breed I know its a messy thing but how much do you love your pet ? I vacum 1-2 times a day its no prolbem for me.I love my dog she is a part of my life and my boat.She watches everything that goes on and never lets me down.There is no such thing as the perfect pet. I would get rid of my boat before I lost my friend and brushing removes a lot of hair and 2 loves it she thinks that she is getting special attention.She is a pain in the butt cause she is a babby and wild and will never take the place of #1 she is a sweet girl very protective and I wish I could read people like her. Animals are smart and full of love!

I've heard that dogs tend to shed a lot while swimming, and boy does our dogs enjoy swimming! Vacuuming them helps too.

Check out how our guys are enjoying life living aboard.
