Thanks everyone. I've never tried adding anything to their food, I'll have to try that. The worst shedder I've ever had was a Lab. He was worse than either my collie or my golden. Good thing I'm not a neat freak! We're going to look at some smooth collie puppies this weekend, how exciting!

I forgot to mention, but coat factor can depend on the bloodline too. Strictly show lines can often carry more undercoat and shed more. I breed a more "wash and wear" coat, and although correct by the standard, it doesn't "fluff" as well in the show ring and sometimes that causes us problems - but it is much easier to maintain!!
