    Furminator has arrived (with mintys )

    OH says I have to eat dinner before I can brush the dog, he really needs to get his prioties (sp) right.

    I'm very happy.

    Keep in mind I have two short hair, single coat dogs.

    Griffen has come up so soft and shiny. I only spent about 5 min as he hasn't been inside long and wasn't intersted in standing still but in that time I got about a hand full of fur.

    It's the best brush I've ever used on Madeline. Her coat is on the corse side and most bushes just run over the top but this actually got the dead fur out and made her a little softer.

    The hair does stick in the brush so you have to clean it out regularly but I like that, it makes it easier to clean it up and it doesn't end up all over me, although I'm not sure how this would go with long hair or double coat.

    I still don't get how they work though. Can't tell from the website and I don't know anyone who has used one. Curry combs for horses work well on dogs.

    G'day

    Have a look at this pic
    Photo Link This gadget has very close together teeth

    I was shown a Furminator at Petbarn and almost died when I was told the price. It was way over $100 at the time.

    Then I found a Dog Club member that had one and had another go, on Shelby. It is perfect for my German Shepherd. She has a long Coat and is shedding an unbelievable amount of hair at the moment due to the changing weather pattern.

    I was disgusted with the OZ retail price and went hunting on the net. I finally found a site in the US and ordered one from them. It cost me a total of $18.31 Aus and I just paid via PayPal. (US$13.42 + US$2.99 Postage)

    The site can be found here. US Site

    It arrived two days ago and it works beautifully. The teeth seem to some how catch and hold onto the loose hair. A massive amount easier than any other "brush" I have tried.

    Happy brushing

    cya

    Hmmm sounds interesting.

    I've only got a toothed metal thingy that loops back on itself - does that make sense? I'm a bit naughty - don't use it very often... maybe if I actually brushed her more often there'd be less hair on the carpet

    What size would I need to get?? Tay is about Lab size
