I have three dogs. A black and tan coonhound, a golden retriever cross and a golden retriever. The coonhound sheds the worst and I find the hair from a short haired dog to be a lot harder to clean off of the furniture than the hair from the other two dogs. Jack's hair seems to embed itself into the fabric much more so than the dog hair from the golden and golden mix whose hair just lies on top of everything. Get a golden. Invest in a really good vacuum cleaner. Life will be good

I am so glad the dogs (toy poodle, jack russell and golden retriever) are mainly on the main floor of the house where I have hardwood. Using a swiffer daily is easier than lugging my vacuum out every day. Though I do have carpet in the basement and second floors, which is vacuumed weekly.
We sold our upholstered couches and got leather ones a few months after Parker joined us. Makes it 100% easier to remove fur from them. I vacuum the high traffic areas and couple of times a week run the hand held vacuum on the couches (he isn't allowed there but sneaks up when he thinks he isn't being watched:-)) Vacuuming is a part of my routine and I don't think much of it anymore. Get a Golden, their infectious personality makes up for all the fur!
Definitely agree with everyone else, a leather couch and a good vacuum, lol! Frequent home grooming sessions with tools like the Paws Pamper (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00U204CD4) works wonders also, this is what we use at our shop. Good to see people researching and planning beforehand! It's like a snow storm in the shop when we are done with that one in the back, lol!
I would rather pick up hair from a Lab than a Golden said no person ever
I can honestly say, hair is not a big issue in my house. Yes, I change my clothes as soon as I get home, and I brush my dog most days, but I only vacuum once a week. Looking around the room I am in right now, I see no fur (except the mound of it sitting beside me on the couch). I found there was fur everywhere in my sister's house when she had a black lab. It's a different kind of fur - falls flat, gets woven into the rug and furniture. The odd week when I am super busy ad wind up going two weeks without vacuuming, the Golden fur just tumbleweeds itself off into corners or under the table. At that point, I notice it, but that is two weeks worth (Yes, gross. Thankfully, doesn't happen often!)
