Is there a non-powered contraption for picking up dog hair?

I need some kind of light brush I can run over the carpets to pick up dog hair. Non-electric would be great. I'm tired of plugging in that heavy vacuum cleaner.

Those sticky roller-things work well for clothes. Don't know how well they'd work on carpets, though.

Well, if you are interested in collecting dog hair, I'd be happy to send you some. My 3 long hairs keep us very well supplied

I've also found that a pair of dark-colored slacks does a good job of picking up both cat and dog hair.

If you're not a pet owner, all your clothes do a great job. Another magnet for pet hair is spitty toddler fingers.

Toddlers are usually so sticky all over, they make great hair picker-uppers.

Ditto on the Hoky. I see many restraunts and other stores using these for quick clean-ups.

Prevention: best method

Probably a bit late for this... but I am soooo much happier after I decided to only give homes to dogs that don't regularly shed. Once/twice a year is ok, but I had a yellow lab and was forever vacuuming.

Weimaraner: amazing - he used to shed 1 week/year (and drop some hair at the vet once in a while)

German Wirehaired Pointer: He's still getting acclimated, so not sure how we'll do with him- supposedly 1x/yr as well.

Also decided no tail (docked tail) was the way to go. Never been so happy as when I don't have to warn guests to watch their wine glasses due to errant tails and wafting lab-hair.

Good old German engineering!

My folks have 2 yellow labs and have a roller broom sweeper like the ones noted above which they got from a restaurant that was going out of business. I believe it is a Bissell, but not certain.

DO NOT buy the rechargeable Dirt Devil broom-vac, however. A friend got one and it was TERRIBLE!

Blah, when you go to the shelter, you don't pick the dog, the dog picks you.

The roller things looks like the way to go. Gonna see if I can get my hands on one of those.

Thanks all.
