Interesting....... I have never heard that before, I learned something new today!
The furminator does not have a cutting blade (it is the equivalent of a #40 blade but it uses only the comb not the cutting edge) and it is not a stripping tool so it cannot cut coat - with an over packed coat it may pull on some not quite ready loose coat but I have not seen that happen. Some groomers mistake the furminator with another tool which does cut coat to remove matts such as a Matking or Matblade. I have not seen any dog object to the use of a furminator when used correctly - most dogs enjoy it!
