I know my dobermans can be quite the handful, toby just seems to shed way more than a doberman should and ashley just seems to leave a wake of destruction after her wherever she goes!
So my biggest tip is definitely to get a proper vacuum cleaner. Buying a vacuum specifically for pet hair was the best choice I ever made! I’m sure the dogs disagree, they tend to scurry off whenever they see it being taken out the cupboard but it just does such a good job with pet hair.
I honestly don’t know how I ever managed before!
So if you do anything definitely do that.
My second biggest tip has got to be get the hose out. Not as ideal in winter but giving them a good hose down goes a long way in keeping the house clean. ANd you can make it a game! It won’t work for every dog but getting them de-mudded after a long walk then towled down in the porch is such a big help.
Finally, keep everything out of reach!
Ashley is like a child, always peering on counters and trying to drag stuff off. So many tea towels cut down in their prime… and once the fatal mistake of using a table cloth. Never again… Carnage…
But if you’re dobermans aren’t completely mental like mine are then you can always just stick with the vacuum, it’ll make the biggest difference anyway.
Chow for now.
