FURminator Short Hair deShedding Edge For Dogs
Molly and Remy
Molly is a pitbull and Remy is pitbull/boxer mix and their hair is short, pointy and straight and it is very difficult to remove from clothing and furniture. Once their gets into the fabric you have to pull it out with your hand; nothing else works. The Furminator has tremendously cut down on their shedding. I can not say it has completely stopped their shedding but it has helped at least 85%. I think the more I use the Furminator edge and the Furminator Shampoo and conditioner the more it will cut down on their shedding. I love my girls and I am happy I found something that will not harm them but still help with their shedding. Shedding or no shedding, I love my girls to pieces, but it would just be nice not to be covered in hair on my way to work.

I just created another dog!!
After brushing my four month old sable german shepherd dog puppy with the large FURminator Short Hair deShedding Edge for Dogs, I had enough loose fur left over to create another puppy for her to play with! This FURminator is a hair de-shedding MONSTER!!

Expensive but worth every penny
The best brush ever. I now have to brush Freud, my smooth Collie, twice a week instead of twice a day.

Best Item you can get for you're best friend!
I love this thing! My one year old Labrador was shedding like crazy. I was using the Kong zoom and groom with him but it only took out a little bit of his under coat. My house was starting to smell bad due to my dog's hair. So i decided to splurge and buy the furminator. I'm so glad i did. With one stroke, all my dog's under coat came out. Now he's happy and free from all his dead hair. He now has a shiny healthy looking coat. And I have a house that smells good again.

Best brush I HIGHLY recommend this!!!!
I have a 5 pound t-cup poodle with long ears that gets many knots because of the long and curly texture of her coat. She usually starts crying at the sight of a dog brush. That did not happen with this FURminator Short Hair deShedding tool! I took soo much extra hair without hurting her! It seemed like I had two dogs at the end of the brushing session! I HIGHLY recommend this!!!!

I have 3dogs that she'd and I really needed something to help with that issue. My vet recommended this product so I thought I would try it. It is awesome! I couldn't believe how much fur and under coat came off my sweet monsters! This is a must if you are a dog owner. Worth every penny!

Does a good job
but best for shorter haired breeds. I can use it to de-mat my Poodle's ears but it takes a lot of hair off. It helps me pull loose hair out of some of my heavily shedding boarders' coats so that I don't have hair all over the house and furniture and on my clothes. I board a Pug who is a furricane, and a few sessions with this tool vastly reduced the amount of loose and dead hair. Better to go a little smaller in size than too big to avoid pressing too hard on sensitive areas like back and hip bones. Use it gently. Really like the fur ejector button and the ergonomics are great!

Works well at it's primary purpose.
Got the medium size for the beagle. Seems sturdily made and it does certainly remove the undercoat.
On the down side....the comb's thumb operated hair removal/ejection function doesn't work well - at least not on the sample I have. Seems like the plastic blade that is supposed to push/wipe the collected hair from the teeth doesn't fit tightly/closely enough to do the job, so I end up pulling the collected hair off the toothbar with my fingers. Needs to be redesigned, but it's not a deal breaker. It's also quite expensive for what it is which was almost a deal breaker for me.
Only other thing I would modify would be to make the tooth depth about an 1/8" deeper, or better yet, make it adjustable!
