A lab with a PFD? I never thought I would see that!! I pretty sure if I ran out fuel my lab could tow my boat for miles. Just as long as I keep putting tennis balls in front of her.

I have found the Tyson Animal vacuum works great to remove the dog hair. We also use the furrminator brush which I found to work the best. A little pricey but, worth it's weight in gold for removing dog hair and dander.

I know. Dont even ask me about the price for that thing.

We use the furminator comb, with very thin metal teeth. Works better than other brushes/combs we tried, removes tons of fur on a daily basis. Some dogs just have a constant cloud of fur hovering around them, like that Charlie Brown character.

It's the "RuffWear K-9". Pretty expensive, even at a discounted price, but the top handle is sturdy and helps lift the dog back inside.

The jacket ,may not be for the dog but for the master...you cannot retrieve a 100 lb dog without the handle, when you grab a dog by the scruff of the neck he sinks. The handle on the dog life jacket is very convenient for lifting the dog onto a dock ( if he falls in there) or onto the swim platform.

Unfortunatley i know this from painful but not calamitous experience:o

As far as dog hair, you simply need to clean the baot everyday for about a month, and then start again!!!:(

Sparky wears a pfd just because of the handle.

I have had to fish him out of the water a few times - now that he has a handle he doesnt go in the water. Go figure.


What do you guys think about having a 9 inch paint roller covered with masking/duct tape ?

I actually did exactly that once, for the truck. It was too much work to replace the tape at the roller again and again. Eventually I gave up on that battle.

I think the trick would be to load the roller with an entire roll of tape - then just remove the stuff you used. Just like those lint rollers.

Not sure where she picked it up but my wife brought home a really wide lint roller that is attached to an extension pole. Looks like a paint roller but with sticky tear off sheets.

It's made by Evercare and I believe it was designed to get pet hair off of furniture. It works great in the house on rugs, sofa's, etc.

found this link which looks like it but without the pole.

I think the handle might work better, the first time may work but the subsequent times you try picking the dog up out of the water with it, he's going to start swimming away from the boat.

I have an 85 pound Samoyed (google Samoyed pics) and you'll see how much hair they have.

I've had 4 of them (not all at the same time) and they go everywhere with me.

One thing I discovered was that if I wipe down the carpet with rubber gloves, like dishwashing gloves, I can roll it into a pile and just pick it up.

Works great for us...

I wonder how well it works.

We've used our Bissell steam cleaner with some success. They make a smaller, more portable one for spot cleaning that doesn't do as good a job, but is more manageable in the cabin. The cockpit carpets go home with us and get steam cleaned.

Yellow lab + dark blue carpeting = me spending almost as much time trying to vacuum the dog hair as I spend using the boat. Tried the lint roller, but it doesn't have the pick-up power.

I use our Bissell "pet hair" vacuum - bring it from home - works fairly well. It has a bunch of bizarre-looking attachments that get most of it up. Still takes at least an hour of sweaty work. It's a pain, but goes with the territory of owning a fur machine.
