Has anyone tried this? My Rosebud is shedding like crazy right now and I've had several friends recommend it, but they have dogs with heavier coats (labs and shepherds). Does it work on shorter-haired coats, and is it worth the price?

I got one 2 weekends ago and they are what the hype on them is about - the real deal. I have a Redtick that had some undergrowth hair from the winter coat and it cleaned it out like nothing. Used it on my Lab and it looked like I was shearing a sheep.

What I found amazing about it was on the Basset's short hair where their coat looked fine, the undergrowth it pulled out.

Now they are pricey in pet stores and retail stores that sell them - Med $50 and Large $60.

But you can buy them off EBAY for around $20 with free shipping and on Amazon.com for about $20-$30.

Does it hurt them at all? It looks kind of spiky and they have such short hair! Rosebud isn't fond of being brushed to being with, with a silicone curry brush that can't hurt much at all.

No, they didn't mind it at all. I actually think they enjoyed it, like they were getting a massage. LOL

Well, she'll love that! Anything to help prove her theory that she's Queen, not me!

i've got a furmator, absolutly recommended!!!!!!!!!

mine have 2 options. 1 side has big spikes (no good for our bassets) where as on the otherside, comb razor like blade.

my dinky was looking terrable with her coat so i gave her a bath to get most of the dead hair out, waited to be dry and used the furmator on it....only a few staggling hairs left, which will be removed with the brush later today :wink:

Highly recommended :!:

This thing is unreal - I have a trash can full of dog & cat hair! Already I can see a difference in the amount of shedding. Totally worth the price. I bought the small one so I could use it on Bronte D. Catt as well, but if I was only buying for Rosebud I would have at least got the medium sized one.

I got one of these, and all Rossi wants to do is play with it, so it has not worked out well for me LOL. Hopefully he will get used to it one day. I am getting tired of all the hair!
