Shedding is a natural part of dog ownership. SUGAR is a Golden Retrievers, and her breed is known to shed due to a dense double-coat. Regular grooming helps reduce shedding and cleaning our home with Swiffer® products definitely help manage pet hair on the floor and furniture.
This post is sponsored by Swiffer® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share information about Swiffer products for pet parents, but Golden Woofs only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Swiffer is not responsible for the content of this article.
If you have a double-coated dog, pet hair can be everywhere. Keeping a clean house can be a constant battle. Here are two ways on how I manage pet hair in my home.
2 Best Ways to Manage Pet Hair in Your Home
1. Daily Pet Grooming
SUGAR loves getting groomed A quick brush after our mid-day walk has been a ritual. A refreshing bath after beach day is always a highlight of our weekend. We invite you to include your pet in your New Year’s Resolutions; make a promise to your pet and make time for daily grooming.
“Grooming daily helps reduce shedding and helps pets and pet owners bond in many ways.” – Dr. Evan Antin, Swiffer Spokesperson
2. Cleaning with Swiffer
Yes, daily brushing removes mats and dead furs, but won’t completely eliminate shedding.
“But … Shed Happens! When it does, you can clean up your space by using a Swiffer Sweeper on hard floors to trap and lock dirt, dust and hair or a Swiffer Duster for surfaces.” – Dr. Evan Antin, Swiffer Spokesperson
Swiffer offers “easy-to-use sweeping, mopping and dusting tools for virtually every household surface.” We have wood floors throughout our home. I use the Swiffer® Sweeper®, it’s my favorite mop cleaner. Swiffer® Sweeper® is a 2-in-1 hard surface sweeping and mopping tool. I love that you can use a dry or wet mopping cloth.
The Swiffer® Sweeper™ Dry mop cloths have deep textured ridges that trap and lock dirt, dust, hair and allergens (from pet dander and dust mite). It keeps our floor clean, free of dust and especially pet hair.
The Swiffer® Sweeper Wet™ mop textured cloths have a powerful cleanser that dissolves dirt and grime and traps it away. Also, it has a scrubbing strip to handle tough spots like muddy paws.
The Swiffer® Sweeper® does a good job getting under furniture where a vacuum or a broom doesn’t go. It works very well under the couch where SUGAR’s pet hair ends up (not sure why). The Swiffer® Sweeper® is top dog when it comes to picking up pet hair.
I stop using feather duster because of Swiffer® DusterTM. This duster has 50% more fibers than regular dusters. The clever, amazing design uses Dust Lock Adhesive™ to clean deep into grooves and lock up to 3x more dust. I love the 360 aspects because I can get more dusting done in less time and have more time with SUGAR.
“With Swiffer, pet parents can get a thorough clean in minutes, so pet hair mess is never an obstacle to bonding.” – Dr. Evan Antin, Swiffer Spokesperson
The Swiffer® Wet JetTM is an all-in-one system that cleans floors thoroughly using cleaning solutions specially formulated to break up and dissolve tough messes. Pawfect to use to clean “pet accidents” (like dog pee and other pet messes. The Swiffer® Wet JetTM is tough on cleaning pet messes but won’t damage your floors.
Thank you, Swiffer for making clean-up easy and cutting cut down on my cleaning time. My extra time allows me to spend more bonding moments with SUGAR.
Once you’ve used a Swiffer product, you’ll be a Swiffer Fanatic. Why? Swiffer has revolutionized the way people clean their homes.

I just love this post!! We sure do know about shedding! Zippo…the girls’ older brother was part Newf. He had more hair than you can imagine!! We had to keep up with LOTS of Swiffering!! We truly love all the pics of Sugar and we are positive that Sugar is a big help with the cleaning!! 🙂
Haha I love them – possibly the cutest Swiffer pictures I’ve seen! 🙂
I use these myself- they’re great!
Although I now have a black labrador and don’t need them as much – but I used to own a golden retriever as well. Let’s just say I now know what having a shedding dog is like 🙂

Molly and Mackie says

Deborah W. says
I love Swiffer products. They make cleaning up after our dogs so easy and complete the job quickly. I can’t imagine not having them to use. They make our house stay clean and do it in a hurry.
Brian Frum says
We use those things too beautiful Sugar. With 9 of us shed happens lots!
Two French Bulldogs says
We entered cause we shed like maniacs!
Lily & Edward
linnie G says
What we do to manage pet hair in our home is we have to vacuum everyday and dust.
2) I have tried all Swiffer cleaning products and they are a god send for cleaning up pet shed hair! I love the Swiffer WetJet Mop Starter Kit, the Swiffer Sweeper Floor Mop Starter Kit and the 360° Dusters Cleaner Starter Kit
Sugar, Mom should own stock in Swiffer! OMCs do I shed probably not as much as you do but I shed a lot.
Mom uses all the swiffer products!

Theresa Spaid says
We do a lot of vacuuming and sweeping. Yeas I do use Swiffe. It really helps around the cat litter too.
Frankie and Ernie says
BaaaaaaWaaaah…… SHED HAPPENS… Sugar you are soooo funny.
Hey… we have a green Grooming Brush Just like YOURS. We love OURS…
Michelle S. says
I have a Husky who dislikes being brushed. I do brush as much as he will let me but there is a lot of shed happening around my house! I run the vacuum as much as I have time for and I do use Swiffer products. I like the one that goes on the extendable handle for dusting ceiling fans and woodwork. It also works great for getting those fur filled dust bunnies out from under dressers and beds.
Idaho PugRanch says
Mom uses a swiffer duster and vacumns as often as she can. We shed like crazy. and crazy isn’t how the hair migrates under things like the stove and fridge!
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
Sugar, you are such a sweet spokesdog! We’d love to win some Swiffer products because we shed a lot. Especially a certain floofy white one of us! We have to tolerate the vacuum cleaner and some microfiber thingy-ma-bob but we bet the Swiffer would work great!
michelle cavanaugh says
We vacuum a ton and use the Swiffer Sweepers. They work great for the blinds.
Amy Angulo says
I hand strip the dogs fur every once in a while to help with shedding and I do use swiffer products especially the wet jet to clean floors.
The only way to keep up with it is to tackle it every day. I use both the swiffer duster and sweeper regularly.
Sandy Weinstein says
i have mini schnauzers and they dont shed much, however, they bring in stuff on their feathers and bears from outside. i use a swifter vac and dry mop. i like the swifter vac but i need a new one, mine is old. i like that it vac but also has the dry mop attached to it as well. i also like the little dusters, they are good and getting to little nooks and corners, doing shelves.
Shelley Joy P says
We brush the dogs regularly and vacuum and sweep daily to manage the pet hair in our home. I’ve tried the Swiffer dusters and absolutely love them 🙂
Monty, Harlow and Ramble says
I love Swiffer products – we use their mop product to keep our floors clean through out the week, and to clean up any little messes or mud trails the pups bring into the house. We had to give up some of our cleaning supplies during our move, and unfortunately, I lost my Swiffer Sweeper. Our pups get brushings through out the week, as well as twice weekly vacuuming!
Monty, Harlow and Ramble
I love my swiffer wet jet! It’s really hard to manage other for from my pups. I try to vacuum as often as possible.
Linda Szymoniak says
We have three dogs and three cats (all rescues), plus two of us with very long hair, so keeping the floors clean is a full-time job. We have bamboo flooring in the living room and main hallway, so I’m having to broom them at least once a day. For the carpeted area, I have to vacuum a couple of times a week. I’d love something that I could use that would help keep the fur from scattering, like it does when I sweep.
I have always loved Swiffer products. I do currently use their wet wipes and they are a lifesaver. I not only have a dog and a cat, I have an Eclectus Parrot named Romeo. Goodness he makes a mess!
Daniel Scott says
We use their Swiffer dusters to help us manage pet hair, but I would love to try more of their products. Artie has long hair and to help manage it we take him to the groomer.
Jill Van Vlack says
Awesome giveaway! We have 4 dogs 3 Goldens & a Pom & they get groomed every 6 weeks & brushed daily but they shed!
sherry butcher says
I already get the News letter. Great giveaways!
sherry butcher says
At on time I had the Swiffer Jet mop but it broke when we moved. I used It a lot because it did a good job in the bath & kitchen. Would love to win this package it’s a great Giveaway.
Rachel & Rooney says
Swiffer products are a must in our house! Rooney is double-coated and sheds 24-7. Swiffer makes cleaning up dog hair so much easier!
Sharon Gilbert says
My dogs have short hair. It is like a magnet on my clothes, tables, carpet, blankets. I have tried swifter for dusting the tables which works wonders. I you the sweeper on the carpet and sticky roller to get it off my clothes.
Laurie Nykaza says
We have 4 cats and just vacuum often and we do use the Swiffer cleaning duster to keep up hair and dust too that get on everything in the house.
Audrey Stewart says
I have a small rescue shelter for elderly cats, so I fight cat hair every day. I vacuum and dust all the time. I sweep up cat litter several times a day. We have 12 cats at the moment, having lost 3 this year. Thank goodness my hubby helps. I use the Swiffer Dusters, but I don’t have the floor products.
Pet hair clean up can be a problem for pet owners. We love Swiffer products and us them often. Out favorite is their Swiffer® Sweeper Wet™ Mopping Pad Refills .
I vacuum my house daily because I have four pets and lots of pet hair. I have tried Swiffer products. I like the Swiffer Wet Jet
Alicia D says
These would definitely help in the bathroom!! Hair gets in every nook and cranny for our lab that sheds more than what our Pyrenees! We have tried vacuuming but that doesn’t do the trick. Have tried their wet jet but nothing else.
Cheryl Chervitz says
I do use Swiffer dusters, they get all the dust off of my things. I have short haired dogs, but they do loose hair and I usually use the dusters to clean it up.
Mary W says
We use Swiffer products and use a vacuum made for pet hair. Hard to keep up with 6 pets living in the house but Swiffer does make a big difference.
Susan P. says
I vacuum and sweep as well as dust. I’d love to use a Swiffer on the tile floors, though.
i do not have swifter products right now mine were used so much when i mode they had to go bye bye and i miss them I would love this package!! and trust me alot of vacuuming going on here
patricia caradonna says
I vacuum once a week and then my husband follows with a steam mop. I have tried Swiffer cleaning products and I really like them. I need to purchase more at the store. Seems like my kids took all the Swiffer products to college with them. Swiffers are the best.
Priscilla Pursell says
I have never used Swiffer products. However; I do wash the pets bedding once a week. I only have one older shih tzu that is in all the time. I have three other large dogs that are outside during the day, but are allowed to sleep inside at night. I live in the country with plenty of roaming space for them. I have a barn that they have excess to also.
Bryn Nowell says
We sweep ALL.THE.TIME! It never really seems to make a difference, though. We have used swiffer products before, but I have to admit, we have not purchased the refills in awhile. The wetjet has always been great in our kitchen.
I manage dog hair by taking my dog to the groomer. Bichons don’t shed!
I have a swiffer wetjet.
Jen Rodrigues says
I use a duster and broom as well as vacuum to clean up all my dogs hair. I have no used any of the swiffer products and would love to try them out. I hope to win 🙂 thanks.
We have not tried the Swiffer products…they look so helpful for the dog hair!!! We vacuum often to try to help keep the hair down.
Nancy Loring says
I keep lint rollers everywhere because we have two dogs who shed a lot of fur. I have had a swiffer wet jet before but when my dog Tuc was a puppy he thought that it was trying to attack him so he attacked it back and he won the battle.
deb demers says
My daughter is a first time puppy owner. She really needs to keep up with the amount that he sheds. This would be the perfect gift for her.
Kelly Tupick says
I try to keep my home fur free by vacuuming daily and sweeping when i can. I have tried swiffer products before and i love the cleaner for the hard wood floors. I know it’s safe and it smells good too.
Lisa F. says
With five dogs, I can’t keep up with the dog hair and still work full time, LOL. I do like the Swiffer wet jet for the kitchen floor and I used to use the dusters all the time.
yes, I have used Swiffer products before
Jeanne Coulombe says
I have a little chihuhua and her hair is very short but you can see it on the hardwood floor and tile and drives me nuts a vacuum don’t really pick it up. I’m a neat freak so I went and bought a pack of the swiffer dusters and they worked wonderful. I would love to win this package to help me keep my home fresh and clean.
Margot C says
Mostly I use that vacuum. We have cats too, one with a long fluffy coat! I have a Swiffer, but I don’t have (and didn’t know about) the dry heads for the Swiffer. I need those!
Margot C says
**a note** None of the Pinterest photos from the widget work on any of the four Pinterest entries (on any browser) for me. Today I just pinned this page. I don’t know what else to do because I can’t tell what they are supposed to be.
Barbara Ryan says
I like and use all of the Swifter products except I have never tried the duster. My favorite is The Swiffer® Wet JetTM. I have to use the products every few days to get rid of dust and dirt on the floor. especially in the Winter.
Marilyn Nawara says
With 3 dogs I have dog hair everywhere — these would be great to use on the wooden floors
Cathy Truman says
We have a dog with long hair and a cat with long hair and a bird with lots of feathers

Jennifer Allensworth says
Mostly we just vacuum. We haven’t tried swifferproducts but I’ve been wanting to.
Claudia Davis says
There is so much fur some days, its like another pet!
Claudia Davis says

We vacuum a ton and brush them out a ton. We do use swifter on our hardwood floors and they are awesome! Half the time we tell the boys they are gonna get shaved though because they have SO much hair. Ha.
The swifter 360 is a life-saver in our house with four dogs. Between that and regular brushing with the paws pamper undercoat rake, shedding season is no match!
