It’s on your clothes, it’s on your sheets and carpet, it’s in your food. And it’s in your cities! Pet hair is an inseparable part of being a pet parent. The struggle is legit. As was confirmed in a recent survey* revealing Canada’s hairiest cities commissioned by the folks at Maytag.

The survey revealed some interesting facts about Canada and Canadian pet owners. The most intriguing being the hairiest cities in Canada, courtesy of all the hair our furry babies are shedding.

According to the survey, Winnipeg, Calgary and Quebec City are the hairiest Canadian cities. This ranking is based on the percentage of the population who are pet owners. Winnipeg has a swooping 70%, Calgary stands at 55% and Quebec City at 54%.

The survey also went on to confirm what we’ve known all along… pet parents struggle to keep their homes clean. Nearly half (49% to be precise) of Canadian pet owners say their pets contribute to a significant mess in their homes (tell us about it). And pet hair happens to be a major chunk of that mess.

In the survey, dog and cat parents across Canada also reported finding pet hair on their clothing (79%), on their couch (79%), in their washer/dryer (50%) and in their food (31%). And these stats are despite the many pet hair remover tools on the market they have tried.

As pet parents who have tried a bunch of them ourselves, we can confirm pet hair removal tools don’t always work. And the ones that do work to some extent require a decent amount of effort and time commitment.

But this is where Maytag Pet Pro System differs. Not only does the washer/dryer combo actually work, it does so without much effort on your part.
