Rumo would tolerate the Furminator but every once in a while, he would wave his mouth at me to say "go away, you're bugging me."
By accident, I found that my husband's wide-tooth comb worked just as well to get undercoat out...and strangely, Rumo LOVES to be combed. He treats it like Spa day...he sighs, stretches out flat, and falls asleep. Being able to comb him out thoroughly, cut down the fur in the house down by 70% I think! So now the expensive Furminator was replaced by a 99 cent comb...hmm.
