Shedding dog and Holistic Blend

Hi, I've been reading the food forum and nowhere have I yet seen the brand that I feed my two dogs - Holistic Blend Chicken & Rice formula. I was told at the local pet store that it would help with the amount of shedding by my two dogs (Guinness - a Shepherd/Collie cross, and Gryphon - a Lab/Border Collie cross). As you can imagine, my two beasties can generate a lot of hair, especially Guinn. The food has definitely helped in the "poop" department, but the hair is still a problem. Their coats look nice and shiny, mind you. Any thoughts on other foods that may tackle the problem a little better? (My son, who is 10 months old and crawling around has become our secondary Swiffer!)

Oh, BTW, the ingredients are: Low ash chicken meal (see my "Ooops" post below), whole ground brown rice, hulless barley, whole oats, chicken fat (preserved with rosemary), rosemary extract, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), natural chicken flavour, tomatoe pomace, salmon, dried whole eggs, nutritional yeast, kelp, sunflower oil, garlic oil, whlole dried carrots, whole dried potatoes, beta carotene, calcium carbonate, chelated minerals (zinc proteinate, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, iron proteinate), sodium selenite, potassium chloride, cobalt carbonate, calcium iodate, vitamin A supplement, choline chloride, vitamin E supplement, d-calcium pantothenate, biotin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, vitamin K supplement, vitamin D supplement, vitamin C supplement, folic acid.
