not a fan of the Furminator. i guess it depends on the dog's coat. it removed
to bush hair by the roots. i gave my dog a few strokes with it and that was it.
i use an under coat comb and a pin brush. i comb him all directions with the
under coat comb. i use the pin brush on his head, legs and underneath him.
i'll smooth him out with the pin brush.

I got an old style Furminator from Sears for $10 with free shipping!
The Furminator works well in removing dead undercoat and in making the dog's hair feel soft and glossy.
And there is less shedding! Its the most important tool to have in life with a GSD!

I just bought and used a furminator on Max the other day. The brush I previously used was not working very well and actually broke.
I have to say I LOVE this thing.. I filled up a garbage can of fur. I only brushed him for about 10-15 minutes, didn't want to overdo it- but it was the best- every stroke got a handfull of hair off of him. I'm so excited- his fur was really really getting to me- being everywhere!! He was so cute too- trying to lay on me... I was covered with fur! But I have noticed when he shakes I don't see the normal cloud of fur anymore flying!!
