Rated 4 out of 5 by Pete Could be improved.
I believe slightly wider spacing between teeth (and possibly longer teeth) might make for faster undercoat shed removal. The outer guard hair coat of course is also compacted into the present space between teeth and there is some tearing of the guard hair. This present compaction causes the Furminator to not penetrate into the coat as well as it could which would otherwise further speed and more thoroughly remove shed per stroke. We have 2 Siberians.

Best hair brush I've used for our lab. I never knew how much hair I was missing before I started using this brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patty34 Excellent grooming tool!!
I bought this for my 6 month old Great Pyrenees when her adult hair started coming in (and out). It gets down to the under coat quite easily. The ejector button helps speed things along. Also, my daughter used the same,long haired Furminator, on her pit bull mix and got quite a bit of hair out. She loved it, too

Rated 5 out of 5 by Choriza Furminators are where it's at!
I already owned Furminators for short-haired small and large dogs. I was a little unsure about getting this one, but have been pleasantly surprised by how well it works, on my one long-haired dog. Gobs of hair came off as soon as I started using it. Good tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allison AMAZING!
I have a 2 year old German Shepherd. I have tried so many different brushes trying to alleviate all the shedding in my home. I typically used a rake and slicker brush which seemed to get a decent amount of hair. As the weather started warming up, the shedding was getting so bad. No matter how much I brushed, it seemed I couldn't keep up with the shedding.
To be honest, I put off buying a FURminator because of the price. I figured the slicker brush and rake were fine. I am SO glad I caved and bought the FURminator. The first time I used it, the amount of hair I got from my GSD was unreal and I only used it for a few minutes! I read reviews about it pulling out hair, but my dog seems to enjoy it. It is the first brush that she will actually lay down for while I use it.
I wish I would've bought this so much sooner! Don't let the price scare you. It is definitely worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JavaChip14 works pretty well
For my 10 month year old Husky this product is working pretty well.. The only flaw I have is when I push the button to release the hair, it will loosen the hair from the tool but won't release it (at least not for my dogs type of hair). So I still have to pull off the hair with my other hand, and I had thought I should only have to use one hand to brush and push the button to release the hair in the trash. This would save some time in brushing my dog. I still love this tool as it does remove any loose hair on my huskies coat very easily. I'm glad I chose the large size too.

The furminator removes so much hair and stops most
of the shedding. I couldn't believe all the hair that
was coming off my dog...helped so much...less hair
around the house and less cleaning for me....
Love the FURminator....everyone with a pet should have one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saddie This brush is a lifesaver !
I am so glad I tried this brush. I love my dog but the shedding was making me crazy! It literally looked like I gave her a haircut the first time I used it. The shedding is controlled now. I use it 2 or 3 times a week. This is the best brush I have tried.
