You all may agree with us that most of the people love animals as pets but they go few steps behind thinking of the mess they make. You have studied a lot on this topic and finally came to a conclusion that the messiest thing of dog is their shedding. There are some periods when dogs will shed their furs. And this causes a lot of mess in our houses. This is a natural process and we have nothing to do about that. Rather we should look for some ways that can help us in getting a real solution.
Actually there is a great difference between the hair and the fur. May be chemically they are the same but dog hairs have a longer growing cycle and makes the difference between two. The phase in which a new hair grows is known as ‘Anagen’ and after developing when it ends growing that phase is known as ‘Catagen’. Then it becomes resistant for a certain period which is known as ‘Telogen’ and finally when the hair falls out, it is known as ‘Exogen’. Now the difference between fur and hair is that the fur has a shorter anagen phase. Fur is typically shorter and dense in nature while those hairs are a bit longer than the fur. But if you have dogs they will obviously shed and so here are some cleaning tips that will make your work easier.
