Shedding Issues

Does anyone have any good tips on managing shedding?  I have tried everything, but my dog constantly sheds.  I have seen people who have shaved their dogs, but it seems a little mean.

Some breeds are just that way—we have a Bernese Mountain Dog that I swear sheds at least a Shih Tzu and a half a day. If the pic in your avatar is your shedder, he looks to be about the same size and "output" as our Berner. Over the years, we tried vitamins, wheat germ oil, and different diets, all without effect. If you really need a non-shedder, I guess you'd need to trade him in (just joking!) on a poodle or basenji.
