Best Grooming Products?

Hi guys

Mom & Dad are coming for a visit in December and I'd like to send them home with the best possible GSD grooming supplies. Their vet (who makes house calls!) brings them a few generic things every visit but you guys all know that our guys deserve the best!

Thoughts?

My opinions & knowledge can and will differ from those of Animal Planet. I'm no expert, just an enthusiat. Please do not confuse one person with an entire brand.

The Furminator! Best thing I've ever purchased for my dogs. It removes SO much dead hair its amazing. You can find it for cheap on Ebay or Amazon (Pet stores usually sell it for $45+, Amazon or Ebay is usually $25+) My girl's coat is absolutely beautiful and my house is much less hairy.

Yes! The furminator really is the best!!! It sounds too good to be true, but it seriously gets so much hair off it's ridiculous. I used to pay big bucks to take my dogs to the groomers (and I still do sometimes, just to make them feel pretty) all the time because there is so much hair. Regular brushing with the furminator has reduced hair in the house significantly.

Wow! You know...I've seen the commercials and I always wondered if it really DID remove that much hair. I will have to check it out

Thanks guys!

Re: Best Grooming Products?

Earth Bath shampoos. Is that the name Cassidy's Mom? I LOVE THEM! I take them with me to the groomer for her to use. SOFT coats. Smells good and takes away the itchies.

I also use a rake a lot. The Furminator works on some of my dogs and others it not great, depending on their coat. Double coat-great, single-good a few times a year when they shed.

I am hoping to have the budget to get a Pedicure this month. Not sure if that is worth it basket wise-but there are some threads about that.

I like a curry comb type comb or Kong Zoom Groom, too. That seems more massage-ish but does get some hair out.

I use a spin brush when I brush their teeth-but that's not often enough.

Re: Best Grooming Products?

Earth Bath products are awesome!

I like to use the "between bath" spray after I brush them extra good..great smell (we have the mango tango) and gives their coats an extra shiney smooth zip! I like that it lasts for more than a day (the nice smell) I can smell it days later when I bury my head into their coats

The furmintor works GREAT on Kelso (plushier coat) but I cannot even use it on Allie (tighter coat with what appears to be barely any undercoat) I use a rake or just a standard brush on her.

Hey Jean let me know how the pedicure goes if you get it. We have a dremel that works well but I was still thinking about getting the pedicure.
