Just lint rollers in our house. Luckily, I work from home, so it usually doesn't matter if I'm covered in dog/cat hair.

Lint rollers work best IMO.

That, and a "dont care" attitude if you can manage it. When I leave for work I'll do my best to get rid of as much hair as I can.

When I am home I am in sweats and hoodies.

Though not caring has really worked best for me. And my wife, though she took a little longer to come around.

Lint rollers for sure....dont leave home without one... we had a lease vehicle that Neeko would ride in, cost me $168.00 to have it cleaned before we went back to the dealer..... when they were done there wasnt a hair to be had....and it was bad when it went it..... Now we bought Neeko his own car, so the other car looks like new!!!! Probably not many dogs out there with their own car!!!! lol....

I, too, have lots of lint rollers. Sometimes I throw the items into the dryer with a wet washcloth (wrung out) and a couple of dryer sheets and tumble them for 10 minutes on medium heat. Takes off a lot of hair and freshens up the items between washing, too. This even works pretty well for the fleece throw blankets that we like to snuggle with on the couch.

I'm also a fan of beige or variegated colors to conceal that ever-present hair.

So is this how we spot other Golden Retriever owners 'in the wild'? Just look for people dressed in beige, with leather car interiors..?

I am also a 3M lint roller ran. We buy them in bulk. I am not a fan of beige and I wear a fair amount of black. All my friends know I have 3 dogs so they expect me to be covered in dog hair and since, as I mentioned, I wear a lot of black most strangers know I have dogs since I am usually covered in golden fibers of joy. Lol.
