FURminator Deshedding Tool
The FURminator Deshedding Tool is a must have for any dog owner. I could sum up with review in one sentence. “I can’t live with out my Furminator” This is one product for the dogs that I use on a regular basis and I count on this product. I support FURminator deshedding tool 100%. This tool has saved me HOURS of cleaning up dog hair, I never knew that a bloodhound could shed that much and don’t even get me started on the amount Haylie my lab sheds. I just can’t figure out who sheds more the dogs or me?!
Can you believe its only in the last year that I knew what a FURminator deshedding tool was?! I thought it was something that a groomer used and with having a lab and a bloodhound they never went to the groomer since I could easily get them in the bathtub at home and brush them out in the backyard. I never really though about it much about it because Haylie hates to be brushed and Fred loved to be brushed so much no one wanted to brush him because he would sit there for 8 hours being brushed if you would let him.
I finally had enough with picking up all the dog hair in the house and marched right to Petco with the intentions to purchase a Furminator deshedding tool but when I got there I gasped when I saw the price of it. I will be honest I purchased the cheaper one and I will tell you that I was back in 4 hours exchanging the generic one for the Furminator brand. I can’t stress to you enough that its worth every penny they charge. I actually have an older model and when I was at Blog Paws 2012 this year I stopped by the Furminator booth to give my love to them and I was handed a new style tool to try out. I love the new Furminator deshedding tools that are out – the handle is so much more comforting compared to my older model and this one has a lever you press down to release the hair! This works perfect when you are trying to wrangle a dog who hates to be brushed while getting the job done as fast as possible!
Haylie gets leashed up between two trees when it’s time for her weekly brushing, she doesn’t not care for it and will run after 30 seconds of brushing unless she is put in a position to not run away. I’m hoping with time she will learn to love the furminator as much as I do!
