Let's get one thing clear, your dog has too much hair, and the FURminator was sent by aliens in the future to help you fix that. Let's get started!
First, go put on something you don't plan on wearing for the rest of your life. Unless you wear plastic trash bags (Derelicte?), you're about to be wearing your very own authentic dog-hair suit. A lint roller will help, but plan on tearing through half the roll of adhesive sheets when you're done.
Next, go outside. If you have a particularly ornery dog, you may want to throw a leash on him, but don't you dare FURminate in your home, unless you're the first person to brush their dog because you want MORE hair in your house. When you're done, you'll have little fur tumbleweeds bouncing around while you stare in disbelief at your dog, which will still have fur, somehow, despite the hairpocalype unleashed by this innocuous little brush.
Get help. This isn't a leisurely afternoon in the back yard where Rover pants contentedly while you haplessly brush away the loose hairs. This is war, and in war, you need two hands. One person holds Trigger in place, the other FURminates.
Get in there. Short, fast strokes are your best bet. Use one hand to hold the skin in place, and the other to run the brush through. Use the handy button on top to clear out the teeth when it gets clogged. Expect to do this about a million times. Seriously, you're going to wonder how much longer it can possibly go on. Longer, amigo.
Stop when the fur piles are waist-high, or when the fur changes color. I'm convinced you would end up with a shaved dogif you just kept going, but the pile of fur would be unmanageable. The FURminator allegedly pulls the undercoat first, so when your brown dog starts getting lighter in color, we assume that means the top coat is getting attacked. But who cares? Go nuts, the d#mn beast will grow it all back in 2 minutes anyways, right?
This is the be-all end-all of grooming products for your dog. If you hate having animal hair in your house, and have the discipline to use it every week, the FURminator will change your life.
Cons: Doesn't work on human back hair
So, I was getting my eyebrows waxed this past week, and my consultant raved about the Furminator. Yeah, yeah, whatever, I thought. But she put the idea in my head, and a couple days ago there I was buying the darn thing. For reference, I got the long hair large brush. I had a lot of reservations about buying the Furminator. From the fakes, to them hurting dogs, to all the other complaints I read about it, I was just skeptical. BOY WAS I WRONG.
I got my Furminator today and brushed Maxie for over an hour. After every stroke, the brush was full of hair and I had to release it. Not only did the brush NOT hurt my dog, but it made her feel good! As I ran the brush down her back, she'd get a muscle twinge and start to shake her back leg, like she does when I start to scratch a really good spot on her. She patiently laid her head in my lap, wagged her tail, and STAYED PUT as I brushed her! This thing is a miracle brush! Per the pictures, she lost a lot of hair. But after an hour, I got tired, and so I'll brush her again tomorrow. When I finished brushing her today, the brush was still catching a full load of hair every time I brought it down her back and sides. This thing is a beast, and I am so happy I bought it.
Easily one of the best investments I have ever made.
P.S. Leaves hair so soft, even my other dog thinks it's a pillow.
