    If you’re concerned about strands, I’d guess too many for you.

    No one can be accurate but I’ve done some research:

    If the human head has about 100,000 strands of hair, a dog should have about 15 times more than that.

    Lots of people say it varies on the color:

    The average number of hairs on a human head varies from 98000 (red-heads) to 120000 (blondes).

    The number of strands of hair on a human head varies with color: BLONDE – 140,000 strands; BROWN – 110,000 strands; BLACK – 108,000 strands; RED – 90,000 strands

    The average head has approximately 2,200 strands of hair per square inch, and a total of approximately 100,000 hairs.

    For dogs:


    It mostly depends on the size and type of dog you have.

    Also the breed, color, ect.

    No one will ever know unless they decide to spend their lifetime counting it.

    I know chihuahuas have about 7 million, but i would guess a golden would have about… 14.8 million. But that can very. Is it a female, or male? Males have more fur. You should call you vet. If they have under 5 million, they can have a serious problem! ROFL!

    None. They have fur, not hair. 😀
