It is practically impossible to keep a long haired dog from shedding (I don't know if they have something you can give them for it), but there is a way to reduce the shedding. Brush your dog daily, but backwards, stroking toward the neck, not the tail.

Neutro-Max dog food sold at Big R stores dramatically reduced the amount that our dog sheds. it takes about a month to start working, but after that, the amount of loose hair I had to clean up was much less.
