Author Topic: The Furminator Kicks Butt!  (Read 15750 times)

So the furminator I ordered off of Ebay finally arrived today and I felt like a kid at Christmas. We have been drowning in Gershwin's fur for a while now - it seems like he is losing his puppy coat at the same time he is losing his winter coat. When he gets up from lying down you can not see the floor from the fur covering it. I have been hoping that the furminator is as good as people say it is.

And the verdict? Five stars! I spent about 1/2 hour furminating Gershwin (see pics below) and could not believe he had that much fur left to come off, considering I was brushing him daily for the past month. My one session with the furminator got off more fur than the past thirty sessions with the stripping blade and other brush did! I took a picture of him after furminating and I don't know if you can see how slick his coat looks - it was looking very molty and patchy before, but now it looks like it did this past winter.

Holy moly, Batman!  $50!!! I keep reading all the posts of how awesome they are but even if I get one, I'll still have to figure out how to tie Carter down to brush him.  Hmmmmmm, this will take some thinking. 

Gershwin looks AWESOME in his slick summer coat!

Gershwin looks wonderful!  He probably lost 10 pounds after all of that hair! Cheesy

Take a peek at
www.furminator .com

It is an amazing tool!  Do a search for dealers and you can get them much cheaper than the price listed!

There is also a brush that you can get at Bed Bath and Beyond, its called the Shed Ender...it works exactly the same as the furminator, and its 9.99USD Smiley

Liz, I have 2 shed-enders.. They work but they are so small and they don't come in bigger sizes.. So takes forever to brush out Bubba. That's why we got 2 so hubby and I can both brush him at the same time. Or I'd be sitting there all day by myself. LOL

I just got a Saint Bernard today (5yo F) and this sounds like a great tool! What size did you use and do you think that is the best size to have?

Thanks! Smiley

Gershwin looks absolutely gorgeous with or without the Furminator!  What a handsome fella!  We are also huge fans of the furminator.  With our 3 Newfies we would just be loaded with fur floor to ceiling daily without it!  It was a great investment for us.


Keep on posting those great pics.
