I have finally found the perfect combo. This brush paired with a traditional dog brush is perfection! The FURminator somehow gets so much hair of my high shedding, semi corse medium length hair, German Shepherd. I brush her all over with this brush and follow it with a regular wire brush and it has drastically cut down hair. I mean, I still have to vacuum all the time but can go a couple days without big tumbleweeds of dog hair rolling by.
I have and have had Saint Bernards for most my adult life, hair is an issue with rough coat SB. Been using the whip which a leather strap handle. This thing will work you to death, and they suck. Been looking at this furminator for a good while. Finally broke ranks and took delivery today. So straight to the porch we went. The grip is outstanding, well made and fits like someone that uses it, made it. The button that releases hair actually works, although it is just as easy to pull it off. Cut to the chase, this grooming tool works and works well. My porch floor is covered in hair. CAUTION!!! Do not get heavy handed. Found an area the size of half a playing card that looks like road rash, took a little to much so use some care. So, what is it that I do not like? The cost, did not like that and still do not. The fact that it works so well does take the sting out of the price. With the summer months coming, this will help keep them cool.
Are you kidding me. This thing is F....kn FANTASTIC. 100 percent best deshedding tool EVER. I have a Husky, brush her 2x daily and hair would still fall off in my hand when petted. After 2x w this thing, ZERO HAIR in my hair and she loves it. Definitely worth the price tag
My big girl is a hairy, Sheddy, beast! I have brushed her and brushed her, and brushed her this Spring and she is still shedding. So, I ordered the large size Furminator. It has helped so much as it grabs more of the fur that is shedding and makes it easier to quickly get some of the hair off of her. This is a much-needed tool for a big dog that is fluffy and sheds like a beast!
I have a Norwegian elkhound with extremely thick fur, who also doesn’t like to be brushed. Well for one she loves this thing and the amount of hair it get out is incredible. And I’ve tried many brushes. This one is by far the best.
I have a mix breed dog (Looks like Retreiver + Shepard) who sheds a TON. After using this 1-2x per week I noticed significantly less dog hair that I vacuum up. We can also pet her now without getting gobs of hair coming out. Highly recommend this for any owner of a heavy shedder.
bought this because my normal furminator brush for short to medium hair seemed to struggle around my dogs neck where his fur is longer. I ordered this one thinking it would handle the area better - it showed up and was THE EXACT SAME THING - 1 cm long blade, with 3/4 inch slits
I have a German shepherd. This brush works great. The only issue I have with it is as you brush the fur wraps around your arm and goes everywhere
Used on my Lab for first time. She iscurrently shedding winter coat. Filled up a five gallon bucket in thirty minutes. Glad I ordered long hair model. Best shedding tool I have ever used
Have always used one on my long-haired German Shepherd. It’s everything you’d need for undercoats and heavy shedders! I tried others years ago and NOTHING beats this! I won’t use anything else! My girl is 8 now! It removes all loose unwanted top coat and undercoat and we have BAGS when finished ! Quality is super, lasts! I’ve misplaced mine somehow so just ordered another yesterday! I never write reviews but this deserves it.
