    To those who have one, does it make a noise? Does it hurt the animal? how does it work? is it electric?

    NO! It's normal brush, very comfy to hold in your hand. You have to read instructions carefully before brushing your dog with Furmi.
    For instance, you should brush your dog with normal brush/comb, untangle all the knots and remove all dirt, then you proceed with Furminator as it is purely designed for removing hair. You must not brush hair in the opposite direction of its growth, and you must not brush wet dog, it has to be completely dry. Of course you must not use it on a dog with skin condition.

    Here's the link to their website:

    Two of my dogs have double coats, and we just use the same brush that Natty posted. Really gets the fur out, and we have enough to fill all the mattress's in our house. But Saxon has hardly any fur (poor little thing gets so cold!) but we do get a good amount off him in the summer.

    i have a husky and use a furminator, it works better than anything else i have tried, but like Fedra said i only use mine after i have bathed her and she is completely dry. Definatly does not hurt, just like a normal brush

    I have recently bought a furminator and I love it! Gets so much hair! I've only used it on Taya about 3 times and already mum reckons there's less hair on the floor

    Sorry, wrong thread, wrong assumption. I thought it meant dog owners who have long hair. Woops. Lol.

    Since I cut my hair short, I've had heaps less problems with shedding and it doesn't clag the spinning vacuum cleaner head either.

    Oh wait... you meant dogs with long hair? Lemme see - I got a short haired dog too. I use a rubber curry comb on her. It's not as spectacular as the "rake" or the "furminator" but it mimics running wet fingers through the coat and dog likes it a lot better than other brushes. My horse did too.

    lol.. i have long hair as well.. but i read this thread cos once Nelson's hair grows back, i will need something for him. i think he's an Australian Silky crossed with something that has floppy ears instead, and have read they have a single coat, so he won't need anything too fierce, at least this is what i am assuming.. at least he is tiny and it won't take too long to groom him!

    I use a metal razor style comb on my Pugs. It is great at getting out the excess hair although it has to be used with care as it can easily hurt them in areas where the coat is thinner.
