    Hi Jarrah,

    I have recently been educated on the importance of your grooming equipment after my big Newfie had to have most of his coat clippped due to matting of the undercoat (despite daily grooming).

    Before I was using a slicker style brush that had straight metal pins. Now I use a brush that has 1 row of rake pins that individually spin (like Nattylou's) then the rest of the brush has metal pins like a normal slicker style brush but with bent pins- apparently these are far better at grabbing out the undercoat. It seems to have made a HUGE difference!!

    Old thread I know but I have just received a furminator and wanted to let anyone interested to know that these are available on ebay. I bought mine for a large dog and it cost $21.99 with free postage. I checked on the net and it is the real thing. Great tool and very handy for me who has 7 shedding dogs.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    Hi Dogsrule.

    My first ever furminator arrived this morning too. I got it from eBay too. Size large for $20.50 free postage. Seems to be the genuine article. I tried it out and it certainly seemed to get lots of the undercoat off Jenna. I was a little nervous at first but Jenna didn't seem to mind it at all.

    Does anyone now how often you are supposed to use them. Is is possible to use it too much, I don't want to irritate her skin at all.

    Mmmmm, not sure there. Must read the directions tho I'd imagine once all the dead hair is gone it should be OK till the next lot accumulates.
    BTW, how dare you get yours for $1.49 cheaper than moi...LOL.

    I guess you can use it as often as you like, though I would suspect there's no need to do it every day for example. I do Taya every now and then when I think about it.

    i have 3 brushes i use.
    for my med-long haired BC.
    I use the wired one, then the metal to get the loose /shedding hair and finish with your typical soft brush x

    but i find the wire one is a good all rounder and use it everyday
