Thread: Furminators Whould You Use Them

  1. #1

    Default Furminators Whould You Use Them

    hey guys I am new here. A mate of mine has a Furminator deshedding tool that he uses on his dog and he believes they are the best brush to remove the dead undercoat ever. I have a German Shepard and was wondering are they any good for my type of dog.

    I have been looking around and I found this guy on ebay
    eBay Australia Shop - pampered pets online: Furminators, 2.65 FURminators, 4 FURminators

    He has some pretty good reviews in his feedback and is price is great but I don't want to buy one unless they really work and remove the loose hair.

    Has any one else had any experiences using a furminator any help appreciated?

    I've only ever used it once, my trainer showed it to me a while back.
    If I could afford it I'd buy one in a second, it was great, even on my short haired dog.

    I have heard them being highly recommended too and always think I must get one. They are apparently very good.

    I've seen something similar used on a Golden Retriever with spectacular results. I get similar results using a rubber curry comb from a horse tack (equestrain) supplies shop. The curry combs are around $2 to $5 depending on size. They double as a chew toy although not as durable used that way as I'd like.

    FURminator

    Has a picture of a white GSD like dog with the fur removed from it - quite spectacular.

    Why don't you try your friend's furminator on your dog and see if you and your dog like it?

    It's a pain in the arse.. perhaps because I got a small one and I do I tiny stroke and have to pull the fur off it before doing the next stroke..

    I was going to get a large one, but it's a waste of money.
    Really? Wow, that's good to know.

    If and when I get one I'll get a much bigger one then.

    I decided to get the large one off ebay since it was only $20.
    I'll let you know how it goes.

    Please do Bordeaux! I am really curious to know how well it works on short haired dog and how it is to their skin.

    Make sure you do lets us know. I've heard mixed reports about them on GSD coats. Occy has GSDs and I don't think has been very impressed by Furminators (from memory).

    Undercoat rakes are alwasy good on GSD coats if all else fails!

    I must say i think they are AWE SOME i have a border collie and funny enough i brought one From the same guy on ebay but i paid $29 for mine + postage i see he is a lot cheaper now

    i was a bit skeptical at first but my dog MAX has never looked so great. I couldn't believe how much hair it actually removed he has always had matting around his tail but now its GONE and his coat look so shiny. Max also seems to enjoy getting brushed with the furminator where i found combs always made him a bit jumpy.

    If you don't have one i highly recommended buying one from Pampered pets on ebay best $30 i ever spent. at the moment they are under $20 not sure why when the retail for $100 maybe they are clearing out for the new models.

    I brought the large furminator from them but i just noticed that they have a new double one out now .I think i might invest in getting one of them for max's Christmas pressie this year.
    regards
