    Thinning out the undercoat?
    You know, ive never considered that for Pohm. I might try that in summer, as she hates heat.
    Id go the curry, as furminators hurt. Bernie's told me all about how fricken mean those things feel. He will let me do anything to him. But will express himself vocally about my tools.

    Bernie thinks furminators are torture tools.
    He's fine with dremmels, vaccum him regularly, brushes, combs, ears, but furminators?
    no way.

    There's some cross over of fun things between equestrian stuff and dog stuff.

    My dog chomps ordinary dog leads into useless pieces - in approximately three scissor mouth bites... but she can't do that with a horse rope lead... and horse people often have dogs.

    I never grew out of that little girl wants a pony thing...

    MY DOG !!! DOES IT EVER STOP ???

    I've been a cheapskate and bought a 'self cleaning slicker brush'. The damn thing actually works on the 'self cleaning' side of things. But the more i comb the more it keeps filling up. He seems to like it ...maybe i'm been to gentle..... but it feels like i'm going to comb him bloody bald soon. I can still just run my hands against the fur and come up with fingers full of the stuff !!

    I'm talkin at least 30 minutes on his back, shoulder and bum. Would have been easier to give him a crew cut and start from scratch LOL.

    Will do Ranga. Even a tight arse like me can afford that. Thanks.

    Was snowing out here the other day



    He doesn't seem to mind the furminator ripoff - but his guard hairs are fairly thin and soft. I'd imagine a dog with thicker, wire-y type hairs could have a problem with it. Gotta figure out a good brushing technique though, I started off by doing a single stroke then removing the hair off the brush, but later decided with his attention span it's better to just not bother cleaning out the brush unless it's totally clogged, and just letting all the hair build up on the surface, get it all out first then go over with a brush (or hand) to remove it from the surface

    I think the best idea is to do a little bit often...

    Trying to do it all on one go, once a month or even once a week - erm...

    I washed one of our dog rugs today... and the fur is embedded in it. No idea how to get it out. Maybe sticky tape or one of those tv schticky roller thingies would work...

    I will often come home from work with dog hair embedded throughout all my clothes... A lot of it seems to come out in the wash... but not all of it :/

    I agree, the more you brush a dog, the less hair you will find in one go, which will make for shorter, easier brushing sessions.
