The daily grooming suggestion is a good one--we have 8 long-haired dogs and a daily brushing really keeps the hair balls to a minimum (or what passes as a minimum at our house!
) I brush them each every day and vacuum once every day. It helps that we don't have a lot of carpet....linoleum or wood is much easier to de-hair.
