Please tell me how to do this. I've always wanted a German Shepherd. But in college I had a roommate that had a Black lab. It drooled everywhere, chewed everything, and the dog hair was terrible. Now I assume you can train them not to chew and if you never give them food from the table then begging/drooling will not be bad. But dog hair is bad. It gets everywhere. It gets in the carpet so much the vacuum never got it out. It's in the crease on the stairs, it's behind the cushions on the couch, it's all over the kitchen floor. What other things am I missing? I don't want a dog that just lives in the backyard. Any suggestions?
