We are not talking Chow shedding, or even Labrador Retriever shedding, but she does shed and it gets everywhere. Little white and black hairs (I've yet to find brown hairs).
My trainer says FURminator makes the best grooming products on the market. So we put it to the test.
A downward stroke gets the fur off the dog. You aren't going to brush like you would with a regular slicker though. You should use this like you would a rake. You should be picking up hair that is going to be shedded, especially that undercoat.
This part I particularly like. I remember brushing my brother's chow, and the fur would come off and fly everywhere. This is much better.
- Solid tool, well-built. I've been kicking it around in the house the last couple of weeks and it's very sturdy.
- Easy clean-up. I love this part. The fur makes such neat clumps, so easy to pick up and throw away.
- Makes Lulu's fur shinier and softer. It is definitely worth keeping her groomed.
- More important: Lulu likes it! She loves it when I pull the brush out, she loves the feel of the brush, it doesn't seem to bother her at all.
- The price. This particular tool retails for about $55. Ouch. Very expensive.
- Made in China. If that's important to you, you should know that.
DISCLAIMER: I received a deshedding tool from FURminator to review.
