I'm not a fan of the furminator, but a good undercoat rake is a must. And if you can afford a forced air dryer, those are fantastic too. I've had GSDs for over 30 years and just got a dryer a couple of years ago and I don't know how I lived without it. I was initially put off by the price of the better ones but the found a Metro Air Force dryer on Amazon for $120, around 1/3 of the usual retail price. Keefer is 13 years old and does not tolerate brushing well anymore but he loves to be blown out. And when Halo got DM and was having twice weekly swim sessions for around a year, it was indispensable. They'd towel dry her there, but we'd bring her home and thoroughly blow her out when we got home.
