If you are overzelous during use or use it too often, then yes, the furminator will damage the coat. You can damage the coat if you also use it a wet or damp coat. I use it about once a month but use it more often when Phoenix is in full on coat blow to keep up with the shedding. Watch how you use it in those areas that exposes skin b/c it can irritate the skin (like the "arm pit" and the skin where the front of the back legs meet the body.

The furminator can be a godsend if used properly, like any other tool! FYI, if your dog has a brittle/dry coat, then I would not recommend using the furminator as it will break the guard hairs.
