The FURminator


So the other day we went to our local pet store, Dog Lovers, to pick up some food and a brush for the Pugs. We went up to the counter with a $5.99 dog brush and walked out with a $49.99 dog brush! When we went up to the counter the checkout lady insisted that we try the FURminator if we're looking to remove excess hair from our Pugs. We brought along Zoe for the car ride, so we tried out the FURminator at the store. It seemed to do an okay job, so we bought it not knowing how much it was. We got in the car and started to drive home. Looking at the recipt we noticed that the brush was $49.99!! What!?!? We were appalled at the price and just couldn't believe that we spent that much money on a stinkin' dog brush. When we got home we tried the FURminator out. Let me just say, it was worth every penny we spent. It really does the job of removing excess hair and helps with shedding (if you use it almost everyday). I have noticed considerably less dog hair on the floor since we started using the FURminator. We give it two paws up.

We use ours on Winston and it gets massive, shocking amounts of hair off of him. I haven't noticed, though, if it actually makes him shed less. I'm sort of inclined to think that it just loosens his undercoat up and then causes him to shed MORE, but I dunno. Either way, it gets ther hair off of him, and that's got to feel a lot better for him, anyways. Especially in the summer down here with how hot it gets.

We LOVE our furminator. It was hard to spend the money initially, but is well worth it.

Isn't that crazy? I ended up buying mine off ebay for 20$ I couldn't stomach paying that much. I find that it doesn't work that well on Indy, only Gus.

I have one, if I could only find it... he is shedding like crazy!
