I have 4 dogs and they shed like mad. I have been mulching various plants with the hair after brushing them (the furinator does wonders in this department). I have not been doing it long enough to observe noticeable differences, but it does break down way faster than anticipated. Does anyone out there do this sort of thing? Or maybe even with horse hair or sheep wool or chicken feathers? Any thoughts? Gracias.

Dog, hair, human hair, goat hair, sheep hair, feathers, old organic clothes... you can use it all in the garden.

Have a look in this thread Matt.
