Dog Hair Falling

I have a 8 month old Pomeranian that losses quite a bit of hair, does not make a difference to her coat, however as you can imagine the hair is all over the place and is getting progressively worse. The vet says its puppy hair and will fall out, that was when she was 3 months old.
Is there anything I can do?

Regular brushing will remove as many of these loose hairs as possible, so that there is less to fall out where you don't want them. Make sure she is generally healthy otherwise.
