Wow - I have wondered if that thing at Bed Bath And Beyond works.  I need it for my poms.  I'm gonna get one too.

It looks like it may be hard on the undercoat.What is the difference between it and the rake?

The teeth are much closer together. I believe the "rake" part of the furminator is just like a 10 blade just larger.

I know - I can't keep up with the Pom's coats.  I don't know how you guys with the Hairy Big Paws can do it. Smiley  I am going to get it for the POms for sure.

Just got my furminator today and could hardly wait to try it on my Newies.(I have 3). You are so correct when you said it looks like a big flea comb.I must be doing something wrong because I was not that impressed.Got some dead fur but not what I expected.Will have to wait until next year and see how things go when they all start to lose their winter coats.

So is this just used when the dog blows its coat.  I have only used the brush and comb pictured here to groom Lukka.
Is the Furminator going to cut her fur,,,why the blade?  I don't want her coat to be reduced in length only amount of shedded fur.  Confused

The furminator mainly gets out the dead undercoat.  We just got one and it works well on both our newf and the aussie.  It's not really a blade it just has a lot of teeth to get into the under coat and pull out the dead hair.  It's not going to make the coat any shorter it'll just remove what sheds.  It'll make the biggest difference when they are blowing coat but it pulls out all the built up dead hair throughout the year as well.

I just got one last week. I spend almost an hour Furminating my Pyr. She is shedding her puppy coat right now. Oh boy, I got a grocery bag full of hair out of her.
What a great tool! Absolutly worth the money!!!
