Is this a stripper/shedder or something that is reasonable for everyday brushing?

Thanks!

Susan

The manufacturer notes that the dog should be clean and the fur should be free of tangles or mats. We plan to brush our dog with his normal brush prior to using the Furminator.

I believe you could use it everyday based on the fact that once the loose hair is removed, nothing else will be pulled out. We brushed our dog enough so that once the loose underhair was removed the Furminator stayed fur free. It won't cut or pull hair that is still attached to the skin. Remember that this isn't a brush designed to do the job that a normal dog brush performs.

Our vet ordered one for us a couple of years ago for Jake, our 'late' golden retreiver. Works just as well on our catahoula (shorter hair). Unbelievable as to how well it works... probably stuff a few throw pillows after a session or two... best brush we've ever had by far, for our pets!

What a helpful post! We are getting a new American Water Spaniel and I will definitely put this on the shopping list for the new pup!

Thanks for sharing.

Curtis looks bee-yoo-ti-ful!!

Do I want the small or medium for Dephne and Dilly? (Jack Russells)
Dilly is a smooth coat but Dephne is a shagamuffin.

I got it home and went to work on Curtis and pulled off a pile about the size of his torso. He really looks great and we will see how it does on the shedding.

Furminator

I bought an imitation Furminator for my two corigs and was not impressed with it. I am chucking it out and buying the real deal after reading all the wonderful things that all of you have said about it.

On a side note it doesn't seem to work quite as well on my American shorthair cat. Maybe he isn't shedding as much. Who knows.

According to their web site, this is one of the breeds that the furminator is not recommended for. They aren't intended for any of the non-shedding breeds and some of the low-shedding breeds.

Just an FYI--they are selling on eBay for MUCH cheaper than you can buy them in the stores. Yesterday I went to Petco and the yellow one (medium) was $49.99. On the Petco Web site it was $39.99 with an Internet sales special of $33.19. I got one on eBay with no tax and free shipping for $24 (and that dealer has more for the same price).

Yorkies and the list

Yorkies are on both lists for the brush, will work and will not work. So, I called the maker and they explained that not all Yorkies shed the same, but I could use on both of my Yorkies. I just might not get much hair off of one, if I have one that doesn't shed much.

I bought mine from Amazon - I have the medium sized one. It was $29 no tax, free shipping.

I've seen the exact same brush selling for $60-$70 here in town. I'm not sure if the brush is Made in the U.S. but I'm pretty certain their shampoo is.

But if the brush IS made in the U.S., then NAFTA is a joke and retailers are fleecing Canadian shoppers, much like car manufacturers are. And cell phone companies too.... But of course, that's another story altogether!!
