    I found this website when I was looking for something called a "fasta pasta" microwave cooker that Avon is currently selling.

    Anyway this one seems to answer my questions about the "furminator" in an unbiased way - ie I found as many positive reviews as reviews of duds...

    They liked the furminator and the video is good too.

    Hi GSDs4ever

    I couldn't get it to show past the wire haired dog either. I figure it might have become corrupt on their website - sometimes emailing them will get that sorted. Otherwise the transcript was helpful. I think it would have said if it didn't work on the wire haired dog. It did say they tried it on a cat and it worked.

    Sometimes trying the video on a different day helps.

    I've heard a bit about this Furminator thingy. I just want to compare it with the fantastic groomer I use. I've used my thingy for over 10 years now & I can't find anything on the market that beats it. I'm always looking at what's out there though. A vid would be a whole lot better to assess it's merits than the pics I've seen.

    BTW Hy ... you can call me GSD's or G4 if you like. My full "handle" is a bit formal.

    Hi GSDs

    Ok that is a bit easier but I don't mind the typing practice either. I'm a bit of a touch typer hence the lack of editing in some of my posts. I don't mind people abbreviating or not my nickname either. Just as long as they type enough I know they mean me when they mean me, if you know what I mean.

    I tend to use "you" not "u" when I'm doing sms too. Sigh.

    The furmniator did look impressive on the jack russel foxy type dog. Fluff went everywhere - you couldn't get that bit to play? The handler also said she was very gentle with the furminator rake thingy and didn't press hard.

    the dremmel pedicure and petipaws got the thumbs down from owners and pets. Too slow and too scary noise making.

    Hardly got into the vid at all really before it started buffering endlessly. Saw the discussion of the owner where she mentions she has 3 dogs & 2 cats, but that's all.

    Saw the add on the advertisement TV in the pet store today. Looked very impressive. What grooming thingy do you have, GSDs?

    I'm not sure of it's commercial name, but it's a strip of metal shaped in a loop attached to a handle, with the metal having a serated edge. It took it to a White show last year to give Spirit a last minute touch up. Before I knew it, it was being handed around to just about every dog owner & within about 30 minutes, they had filled a green garbage bag with the excess fur. Most Sheppies have a double coat & people at that show were just raving about my groomer. I've started daily grooming again to relieve Tara & Spirit's incessant scratching & it's certainly made the different in minimising heir scratching & to the fur bunnies in the house.

    I've seen those, they look a bit like the old logging two man saw - only smaller of course. I've seen them used on horses. Not that mine would hang around if you came near him with one of those. He only liked the rubber curry comb - and I'm selling quite a few of those for our local equestrian supplies. When I meet a dog if heaps of fur comes out when I'm patting it, I get the curry comb out of my dog bag and brush more. It's very effective but the Furminator is spectacular. But I've never had a Furminator in my hot little hand (so to speak) so I don't really know.

    And the prices of them on the net are so all over the place - you'd want the real thing not an immitation.

    there's a "shedding blade" on this page, a loop of silver metal - and the handles are clipped together in the photo but they come apart and you hold one in each hand and rake it over the horse (or dog).

    They also have pictures of the rubber curry combs.

    D'oh! I've got one of those I use on the horses when they are losing their winter coat - WHY didn't I think to use it on the dogs!!!!!!!
