The Furminator deshedding tool is a comb which has been designed to remove the undercoat of a pet’s fur. Dog fur can be found in almost place in my household, whether it is the bed sheets, bathroom or even my own clothes. For this reason, I decided to give Furminator a try. There are two dogs in my household. I have a German Shepherd mix which sheds fur round the year and it is worst during the summer months. The other dog has short hair and although shedding is not a real problem for this one, he loves to be combed simply because it feels good.
Furminator commercials appear on television, but I had always been skeptical about buying it because I thought it would not work the way it shows on television. Last year during the summer months when the shedding problem got really bad, I thought of giving it a try. When a received the product, it looked just like a metal comb for dogs and there was nothing special I could see about it.
But, the first time I used it; it took out most of excess fur. I use it about once a week on my dogs and during successive grooming, I have noticed that the amount has begun to decrease. It has been quite some time I have been using Furminator deshedding tool and it provides impressive results. Although it may appear to be very low tech, it removes dead skin and the undercoat from my pets without pulling the skin. My dogs enjoy their grooming session.
The Furminator deshedding tool costs between $35-$45. At first, I thought it was useless buying a dog brush which costs this much. But the desire for a clean home, advice from several friends and the commercial on television prompted me to buy this tool. From my personal experience, I can guarantee that it works exactly the same way as it claims. It is a professionally designed tool which reduces shedding by up to 90%. The Furminator deshedding tool is available for dogs as well as for cats. Although I have always been skeptical about buying products that make such wild claims and come with heavy price tags, I have not regretted buying a Furminator.
According to the manufacturer, you should brush once or two times a week. It should be used for about 20 minutes and it is not recommended to brush the same area over and over again because it may irritate your pet.
