I have two very lovely and shedding german shepherds and we use a rake on them frequently, but I still vacuum up enough fur to make one more shepherd!

I read the online reviews and most love it, but I thought I would ask here! Plain and simple- is the furminator worth $60?

Re: Furminator?

I bought mine from Amazon for about $35. I am very happy with it. I'm amazed at how much hair it removes.

Re: Furminator?

Amazon- about $35-ish. Don't even THINK about getting it from a brick-and-mortar! They are ridiculously priced. Much more reasonable online.

The furmie is worth every darn penny. I hate to say that because it is very expensive for just a brush, but it's true. If there is loose hair, it will find it and dig it out!

Re: Furminator?

Wow, I have never heard of this product. I just looked into it and with you all giving it such good reviews, I am on this one! I have 2 dogs and 2 cats. One of my cats is a long hair and she is shedding machine. I am going to have to try out the small one for her and the big one for Max. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Furminator?

Thank you so much for your input! I checked on Amazon and it is much more reasonable!

My younger dog gets very stressed at the groomers so we are desperate to find an effective method at home.

Re: Furminator?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! I also got mine on ebay for about $35.00. It works well on my labs too, but I don't have to do it often. I have had mine for about 9 months and have not had to replace the blade.

Anyone have an idea how long the blade will last? I brush my shepherds about once a week and labs once a month.

Re: Furminator?

I had mine for one year and still love it! It seems to stimulate their skin. My Atka goes into his belly up position! I guess it feels good for him.

Re: Furminator?

We use this brush on our dogs, too. It seems like I could just keep brushing all day and it would still be getting hair out! Love it!!!

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.
