This is a bit of an embarassing question really.

I have a few short dog hairs stuck beneath my laptop keys.

What is the best way to remove them?

You can give the laptop a shake when its upside down. Alternatively, get a strong blow dryer and blast it while its upside down. Should shoogle things out.

Don't pop the keys off unless you're confident that they can actually be put back on. The vast majority of laptop keyboards are not designed to have the keycaps taken off.

There aren't really many good options for a laptop keyboard. Just try compressed air and hope for the best.

Ants, use tiny ants trained to grab the keyboard hairs and crumbs to take to their queen who likes hair.

Or just remove the key caps and use a dry brush and some compressed air.

I tried a vacuum cleaner once but it just broke the key hinge so be aware of that unless you can adjust the power to quite low.
