    I like the links - because it helps to know you're not investing in a fake if someone else has bought one from the same place.

    PS and a link that lists all furminators on ebay - doesn't help.

    Until you get a furminator, if you decide to, have you gone over him with a rake?

    Okay, so I had to go to Petbarn today to get dog food, so had a look for a furminator just to see what they looked like (the ebay pics aren't too clear), they didn't have any, but they had a de-shedding brush which had these "fat" teeth on them. Lol not sure how to describe them. I have a slicker blush with similar teeth, found this linky to the one I have:

    Le Salon Pro Large Pro Slicker/Rake Combo at UKPetSupplies.com

    Is that kind of like a furminator? It does do a good job, but still looking for alternatives.

    Thanks for all your replies everyone - I spent a few hours today brushing out our latest greyhound arrivals at our kennels, they still had their thick winter coats poor loves!

    Here's a picture of the furminator.

    It's one row of bristles and easily removes twice as much hair as a slicker/rake.

    The ACD's that have come through here have needed a once a week brush, same with the short haired BC's.

    I'm not sure how much better a picture I can get for you though!

    Thanks AGB, somehow I don't think what I have is too "furminator-y" ! Meh, I guess $20 won't break the bank (least I hope not lol).

    I shall order one toot-sweet and report on my findings when I have used it!

    we have a furnimator but i never use it, we bought it for our GSD and it was awesome but since we got the spoodle it hasn't been used! Pepsi never has enough coat that the slicker cant deal with it.

    Well, that is why I didn't include the link the first time. The seller I got my furminator from doesn't sell any ATM....

    The furminator can damage the top coat if you go nuts with it. It essentially has a clipper blade on the inside.

    'For corgi or gsd coats I would rather use a rake. The one I have goes through everything, it looks like this and costs around $10.



    Excuse the little rusty bits at the top of the teeth, I commonly use it on the dogs in the bath! The teeth spin around so it slides through more easily, and it penetrates deeper than a furminator or slicker.
