Ok dog owners - how the heck do you get embedded dog hair out of marine carpet ? Vacuum sucks, brooms are somewhat effective. Is there a better way ?

I let it dry and use a broom, but there is still a lot left. My dog sheds a whole new dog every week.

We have a special vacuum cleaner that has a beater brush and a felt strip for removing dog hair. I think ours is a Bissel.

Works pretty well, we follow up with the hand tool for couches for really bad spots.

I dont have a trailer, my carpet is dark blue, and my dog is springer mix, white with black spots.
I have gone so far as to use masking tape - sorta like a lint brush, but it takes forever and seems kinda anal.

Speaking from a guy who has 13 years of experience with hair from an Alaskan Malamute/Siberian Husky mix who develops a major winter coat and sheds green garbage bags full......

Duct tape in the boat and in the car. Wrap it around your hand like a glove and go to it.

Speaking of dog hair. My dock neighbor bough my previous 2855 and about 2 months later he complains that it seems to be running rough and smelly. I opened the hatch and went to remove the flame arrester. The intake which is just around the sides was completely covered with golden retreiver. Just a heads up on something to check for those of you with big dogs. ;)

I have one of those smaller (2 gallon) shop vacs for the boat. It does not have a beater bar, just a floor attachment - it sucks.

Get a new dog (j/k). We have a standard poodle that does not shed. There are some other breeds, too that do not shed.

Mr. Sparky is getting on in years, but he will be around for a while longer.

Probably over kill but I use a power washer with a little detergent. Seems to rid the carpet of a majority of the hair...

We have a golden retriever. I gave up on getting it all a long long time ago. My truck will always have a layer of fur in it. In the house the carpet will always have a golden hughe to it and the boat will always have a degree of fur.
You have to becareful when you open the engine hatches as the fur goes flying.
After reading an earlier post, I need to check my engines air intakes.

I've got a male Newfoundland... tell me about hair. :)

What works well for me is a stiff bristle nylon scrub brush. The hair gets caught very easily and works great.

Thanks for asking this one. I to was wondering how I was going to remove the pounds of hair that Selah leaves on the boat each time she goes out with us.

My last car has black carpet and the P/O must have had a white dog. My large shop vac with a stiff brush attachment got alot of it, then out came the tweezers:hammer
We don't have a dog otherwise I wouldn't bother...

We used one of those on our Wolf. Than went to the dump with two large garbage sacks full of hair.
Our neighboor stopped by before we bagged it up and ask what did Selah kill now.

Below are a couple of pics of Shedimus Maximus.

[img]/media/kunena/attachments/vb/401037=8676-winter 09 002.jpg I use a dirt devil that has a beater brush. It does an ok job. I have learned that you never do without snap in carpet when you have a shed machine (dog).On my last boat I didnt' use carpet and hair was EVERWHERE in the bilge. Now when I open the bilge the only part that seems to have hair are the batteries. I guess they are a little sticky and attract the hair.At least the carpet traps most of the hair

Nice. Now I know where Selah got her pink nose from. Must be the Malamute part of her mix.
