2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Is there any certain kind of bed sheet and pillow case that I can use that won't let hair stick to them so badly? Our husky is a little over a year old and has consistently been shedding since we got him, but it is particularly bad on our bed. We don't want to restrict him from sleeping with us, but if he lays on the sheet or pillow case, it is instantly covered in fur and very hard to get off. He loves to steal my spot when I get out of bed and lay with his head on my pillow because he thinks he is human. Lol
Also, what about car seat covers? Anytime we take him anywhere which is usually multiple times a week, the back seat looks like a dog has been living there for months. It is almost like the materials just pull fur off of him.

For the car - get one of the back seat hammocks. Chewy's has a few - search dog backseat hammock - there are lots available with different features (I like a zipper between the front seats so a passenger can ride in back if necessary.)
For the bed - I use an old sheet on top of the comforter with an additional old sheet folded in half an on the bottom third of the bed (for when he's wet) These can collect the fur, mud and wet, be thrown in the wash. Since I am old, I have a ready supply of old bedding and can rotate sheets - one comes off, another goes on. That way the sheets and blankets I sleep on are always furless. Mostly - it does float in the air
You can also try fabric softener and cotton sheets. But, not sure that really helps much.

I think the thread count of the sheets counts for a lot, the higher the thread count, the less likely the fur sticks to them. I bought a comforter cover from IKEA once that I simply cannot use because the dog hair clings to it like its glue. Normally, I've found that washing the item a couple times helps reduce dog hair sticking to it (like black clothes) but this comforter cover, it made no difference. It's not very soft and no matter how much fabric softener and washing I did made it any softer. Whereas I have sheets and another comforter cover that matches them that doesn't hold dog hair and any hair I do find, swipes right off with my hand. I do like Amy mentions too, with covering the bed during the day with either an old sheet or blankets specifically intended for when the dogs jump up.
With the car, I agree with Amy on the hammock, they are great. I used them before when I had a car with "cloth" seating (now I make sure I get leather, haha) Lint rollers (sticky tape) help some too.
