4 Time Tested Tips to Keep Shedding & Dander as Low as Possible.
1) Feed a RAW food diet as much as possible.
The mainstays of a nutritious well balanced diet includes healthy carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes & a healthy protein such as chicken. You can buy precooked canned sweet potatoes at Wal-Mart, or place several sweet potatoes on a cookie sheet with parchment paper under it, cook on 350F for approximately 1 - 1.5 hours. You can also feed your dog a raw egg every other day for a beautiful shiny coat and a healthy immune system. Other popular items you can safely feed your dog are: Peas, broccoli, green beans, carrots, rice, brown rice, and other unprocessed meats. Liver is also super healthy for a dog but only plan to feed liver not more than once a week as it is rich in vitamin A and too much vitamin A is bad for both humans and dogs. Please note that it is best to stick to 1 type of meat to reduce the risk for allergies. If you start with chicken, stick with chicken. If you start with beef, it's best to stick with beef. Since chicken is much cheaper, it's best to start and stay with chicken.
Most people are not comfortable feeding their dog raw chicken, so feel free to cook it. Cooking in batches and storing in the fridge is a great way to keep healthy dog food on hand and it's inexpensive to feed this way. Not only will you enjoy less shedding and dander, but their poop will not smell nearly as bad if you feed a pure RAW food diet, even if you cook the chicken.
I know it's not always possible to feed a raw food diet, so supplement as needed with a high quality dog food such as Costco's (Kirkland) adult dog food in the maroon bag.
2) Use a De-Shedding Brush for 10 minutes once a month.
Do not underestimate a Furminator tool. They work amazingly well to reduce shedding by removing loose hair that would otherwise fall to the ground eventually.
3) Brush your dog with a regular grooming brush daily.
Brushing your dog not only increases your bond, but it stimulates the oils on their skin, protecting their skin and reducing dander. Another benefit is that it also collects loose hair that would otherwise fall to the ground.
4) Bathe infrequently
The less you bathe your dog, the less dander they will produce. If you are going to bathe your dog, focus on the outer coat, not the skin. In other words, don't do a deep shampoo. Focus on the hair, not the skin. Also, we recommend you use an oatmeal shampoo to keep their skin moist, or Melaleuca shampoo which keeps the flora on their skin in tact, keeping their skin healthy and protected from bacteria that can cause skin infections.
