Furminator

Ok, not really sure if this topic belongs here. But I was hoping people could give me some idea how well the FURminator works. I was reading the reviews on Amazon.com and I am little worried about some of the reviews. Some are saying it really doesn't work or it will ruin the coat. Does anyone have the Furminator and if so, how do you like it? Thanks.

Ditto. I've only used it for a month now, but it helps so much. Before I used it, she'd have clumps of hair that you could pick out, and whenever I'd pet her, by the time my hand got from her front to her back, there would be a handful of fur. Now, theres maybe a few, but nothing like before. Her shedding has decreased tremendously, just ask my vaccuum! Obviously she still sheds, but NOTHING like before. Totally worth the money. Also, I found the medium size one new on Ebay for $28 shipped, compared to some stores/sites selling it for much more (around $40-50). Good luck! They are so worth it!

Re: Furminator

BTW, I think her coat looks much better than before. I couldn't see it ruining her coat, but maybe people aren't using it right, or have dogs with bad coats in the first place? I don't know about other people, but it has worked wonderfully for us.

Re: Furminator

Two thumbs way up!
The dogs love to be brushed and they will actually stand in line to be next! I also got the medium size - works best around the smaller areas but.. if I had unlimited supplies of $$$ I would have the largest one too for the broader areas of the body.
Just remember not to push down on it when you use it.

Re: Furminator

I love my furminator! The only way I could see ruining the coat is if you use it over and over again at one time in the same spot, then you start overgrooming and the hair coat starts to get a little sparse! But as long as you use it reasonably, its phenomenal!

Re: Furminator

We have one for Jesse and we love it, works great, we just don't use it often cause he has a short coat (still working on growing adult coat).

Re: Furminator

Two thumbs up here!

I have a dog who does not like to sit still long enough to be properly brushed. The furminator allows me to get more of the undercoat out quickly than if he sat still enough for me to use a pin brush or shedding comb.

Just don't overuse it. I only use it once a week and chase Phoenix around the house with the pin brush the rest of the time...
