The Furminator: No more vacuuming 3 times a day
This thing rules
The video / pictures on the website are damn accurate.
We were vacuuming 3 times a day, the border collie in particular was leaving clumps of hair everywhere. I saw this at Petsmart and worried about the price but went for it. TOTALLY WORTH IT.
I've used it on 3 dogs; a border collie, a golden and a pug. Each time the results were amazing. The first time I used it, I started inside and realized that was a bad idea.
What works for me is to play frisbee outside and brush them while they rest. The running knocks off the loose fur that static clings back to them. All 3 dogs have seemed to enjoy it. It doesn't seem to be pulling or scratching their skin at all.

Mars coat king is another great tool but more for taking out undercoat.

Cool. Just did the morning roundup after my border/aussie mix. Getting warm and she's chunking out.Skiing, where my mind is even if my body isn't.

Damn, according to the above, the Oster takes off more than the furminator...That'd be like crack.

DO NOT OVER-FURMINATE !
My wife got too zealous with our Golden, and it stripped the soft coat and left her as coarse as a Labrador.
A little Occasional Furminating goes a long way.

we use a horse comb on our labs. It's like a loop of metal with teeth on it.

Found a beauty Furminator deal on Amazon for like 60% less than what they wanted at PetSmart/PetCo.
THAT THING KICKS SERIOUS ASS.
Our Boys hate the shed comb (see horse comb note above). They used to look at us like they'd done something wrong.
My only concern with the Furminator is one of my boys got a little red-on when I used it. He had to take a time out!
The Furminator will do for dog hair what shaped skis did for skiing. Rip that shit up!

I use a generic undercoat rake on my Aussie.
Huge improvement for mass mat-removal over slicker brushes, the only kind I knew growing up:

Rake's fine in the winter. Come summer, gotta break out the big guns...
Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

the furminator is the only thing that works on our pointer mix. she has that really short slick hair that sticks to everything.
we got ours on amazon for way cheaper too

Hmmm...This might be good to use on my girlfriend's 60's bush. I'll make sure to use it when she's resting.

The furminator is amazing.
100% recommend it

Is the furminator really a big step up over a generic coat rake like this one?
I pull a TON of fur off my dog with the regular coat rake, but if the furminator is that much better I guess I'll have to throw down. My dog has the most. fur. ever. It just never ends.

Yes Yes Yes
I tried everything before finding the Furminator.
When I bought mine and saw the picture on the box of the tons of hair around the dog I assumed it was an exageration. It isn't. It's crazy how much hair it takes off my Lab/Rott.

I think it works significantly better than a standard rake.
It is worth the extra couple of dollars.

It's like magic. I'm all goofy about it.

Tried the knock off furminator, then tried the real deal. There is no comparison. It's worth the $

Been using the Furminator and their deshedding solution on the newf and they kick ass over other brushes specially when the dogs loosing the winter coat."When the child was a child it waited patiently for the first snow and it still does"- Van "The Man" Morrison
