The Easiest Way To Combat A Shedding Dog Using The FURminator

I have two beautiful fur babies, that I would not trade for the world. They are literally my kids and would go to lengths to keep them healthy and happy. One thing that I have never enjoyed is the dog hair. Both of my dogs seem to never stop shedding, it can go on all year long. This means more cleaning for me. I literally vacuum twice a day and mop once. This can be somewhat of a pain, when you have so little time during the day as it is. I am totally amazed and shocked to how much time I have wasted cleaning up the dog hair, when I could be just eliminating it all together. I have always brushed both of my dogs about three to four times a week, depending upon the season and weather. Last week, my entire life changed! I received a FURminator DeShedding Tool!

For over a decade, Angie Porter, a professional pet groomer, attempted to find a quality, invaluable tool to deal with dog shedding. After using every possible device in the industry, she realized such a tool didn’t exist, so she decided to develop it with her husband, David. Together, they furminatorLargeDogLongHaircreated the first and only tool to safely, efficiently and comfortably remove a pet’s loose undercoat: the FURminator® deShedding Tool – the most popular, sought-after and beloved shedding solution on the market.

The day that I received this, I tore open the package, like it was Christmas morning. I love to try out dog products! Lucy and Ricky just looked at me strangely as I called them over to take a look at their new brush. Personally I was impressed with the design. I loved that it had it is not only easy to use, but really works. The stainless steel deShedding edge reaches deep beneath your dog’s long topcoat to gently remove undercoat and loose hair, the undercoat is the location of most of the hair that is loose. The FURminator totally eliminates this hair with ease and almost effortlessly. On the back end of the FURminator is a button that easily allows you to remove the hair from the tool itself. I love this feature. No more trying to clean out the brush!

Here are a couple of highlights about this product from the FURminator website.

  • Reduces shedding up to 90%
  • Used and recommended by veterinarians and professional groomers
  • FURejector® button cleans and removes loose hair from the tool with ease
  • Guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush, rake or comb
  • Designed by a groomer for professional results
  • Patented technologies

So now I guess you want to see my results? Get ready to be blown away. First off, let me tell you a bit about my dogs. Lucy is a hound/rott mix, with coarse hair. Ricky is a Pit mix with again short coarse hairs. Lucy is nicknamed the “shed monster”, because she sheds all year long and just never stops, so I started out with her, when trying out this product. I literally worked on her for about 15 minutes and this is what I got. I found a whole dog worth of hair!



CRAZY!! That is a lot of hair that would have found its way into the house. No wonder I had to vacuum so much! Not only did it remove all that hair, but my Lucy girl looks beautiful. Her coat is so shiny. Lucy loves to be brushed, but with the FURminator deShedding tool, she adores it. I guess it is like people, when we go have our hair done. She just gets so relaxed and almost falls asleep. I think my pictures speak for themselves, whether to if the FURminator works. I will never again buy another dog brush. This brush is perfect in every way and not only does it work, but it also saves me the hassle of having to vacuum a couple times a day.

FURminator offers a couple of selections when it comes to the deshedding tool. You want to make sure you get the right size for your dog. They offer long hair, short hair and even a deshedding tool for your cat! You can see all of the options here. FURminator deShedding Tools can help you reduce the amount of loose hair in your house by up to 90%! That means less time spent cleaning and more time to spend enjoying your pet!
