I brush Ivy out with it all the time and she LOVES it and so do I.

Dry is definately the best way to go

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!
Ok!

Like I said I never heard of it cutting the coat. Thanks.
Ivy does enjoy it!

Thanks!

The instructions that come with the tool tells you to only use it on a clean DRY dog.
Yes!
