Reya Furminator 1

Does your dog shed? Okay, let me rephrase that – are you tired of fighting the losing battle against dog hair in your home? While I love Reya to death, sometimes the fur everywhere is a bit much, especially when we are rushing out of the house to a business meeting or heaven forbid, I wear a black dress. Of course, I always have a lint brush with me, but it feels like I should have some options when it comes to controlling her fur. Usually when it gets too bad, I go for my favorite dog grooming tool – the Furminator. For those who haven’t heard of this awesome tool, it really is a pet owner’s best friend and to my surprise, they have a full line of products that I didn’t even know existed!

Furminator: Furminator DeShedding Tool

Looking for a grooming tool to fight back against long dog hair? If so, we think you will love the Furminator Dog deShedding Tool. This tool works using the stainless steel deShedding edge which reaches deep beneath your dogs long topcoat to gently remove the undercoat and loose fur. Best of all, this patented technology allows dog owners to groom their dog without much fuss at all, since many dogs don’t mind being brushed with the Furminator, which doesn’t cause harm like some sharp grooming brushes, rakes, and combs.

In our household, this is a daily grooming tool that has dramatically reduced loose fur in our home, without causing any harm to Reya. It is especially useful when Reya is blowing coat. For those who don’t know what blowing coat is, this is where malamutes and huskies lose their undercoat, which happens about twice a year. This can be a very long, drawn out process that can take hours upon hours. Below, is a picture of our yard about brushing Reya for only 5 minutes with this deShedding tool.  It isn’t too shocking that it can reduce shedding by up to 90% and is recommend by veterinarians and professional groomers! Based on our own experience, we are delighted to give the Furminator DeShedding Tool an A+ rating and recommend it to all dog owners!

Furminator: Vacuum Accessory

Want to make using your Furminator as mess-free as possible? If so, we think you will love the Furminator Vacuum Accessory. This cool accessory attaches to your vacuum, allowing it to suck up hair as you are working, making grooming less messy and without the need to have a trash can with you at all times. As you can see from the video below, this tool is pretty nifty and makes grooming a snap. Since all of my dogs are a bit nervous around the vacuum, I am showing off one of the official videos rather than showing this working with Reya. While it works, just know it may take some adjusting and lots of treats to get them used to using the Furminator with the vacuum. That being said, this is a pretty nifty tool to work alongside the deShedding tool and we are happy to recommend it to our readers.

Furminator: Shed Control Cloths

Trying to find a way to quickly add some shine to your dog’s coat and get rid of loose fur before leaving the house? If so, we think you will love the Furminator Dog Shed Control Cloths. These convenient cloths remove loose surface fur while also giving your dog’s top coat a quick cleaning. These cloths are three times thicker than traditional wipes, reusable, and work by using a proprietary three dimensional loop technology that traps loose fur on the wipes themselves.  As you can see, these cloths do a great job collecting loose fur and leave Reya’s fur with a pretty shine! Based on our own experience, we are happy to give the Furminator Shed Control Cloths an A rating.

    Thanks for the Wonderful Review on Fighting Back Against Shedding with Furminator Products! When we had our Husky Keisha, I hated the fur flying all over the place! I could clean the kitchen and walk in a few minutes later and there would be dog hair all over the stove top and the counters! Whenever we brushed her, I used to say that we could literally make another dog out of all the fur that we got off her! LOL I loved Keisha, but I hated her fur. We have 2 shih Tzu’s now and they have hair and not fur. I don’t generally get any hair left around. Our Rescue, Summer, pulls some of her hair out when it gets really long! Other than that, we really don’t have the problem of all the fur we used to have! I know that after Keisha left us, it took over 6 months to get all the fur out of the carpeting, etc. This Furminator with all those different items is really fantastic! My oldest daughter, who lives in KY has 2 Siberian Huskies and the fur is all over everything! She takes them every several months to a PETCO to have them groomed and combed out. Thanks so much for the wonderful review, the pictures, and your personal and professional opinions on Fighting Back Against Shedding with Furminator Products with all of us! I honestly do appreciate it very much! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

    This sounds like a great product! I have a cat & a dog & they both shed!! I don’t like their hairs everywhere. The hairs even make my nose itch. My friend’s dog’s hair is ALL over her home. It’s so bad that I am ashamed to say that I don’t even want to sit on her furniture!! One day I had to shake my socks off outside before I could put my shoes on!! I have suggested to her to try vacuuming her pet. I will definitely Furminator Products to her & look into them for us!!
