I've heard that putting a nylon stocking(pantyhose) over your hand and brushing your furniture with it, really picks up the cat hair....I'm not sure if it works as well for dog hair or not...haven't tried it... the hair doesn't bother me.
We have plenty of it, one golden...and 4 cats. The 3 indoor/outdoor cats have decided they are pretty much indoor only since winter hit and we lost our cat that was king of the house.
I am lucky though Kylee sheds very little for a golden. I brushed her this morning, first time in about 10 days and didn't even get a brush full of hair.
