How did I live with dogs without this product???
on March 12, 2015
I don't know how I lived my life without this. Seriously it is one of those products that the second you use it, you are amazed and in love. I have two Golden Retrievers and one German Shepherd, so as you can imagine, the shedding and the hair, is endless. I hate brushing them in the house because the hair gets everywhere, and if I brush them outside my yard is covered with clumps of hair that eventually look like drowned rats the next time it rains.
The Dyson Groom solves all of that. There are virtually no flyaway hairs when brushing and for the few that do get away- you are holding a vacuum hose, so just point it at the escaping hair and it gets sucked right in. I am not covered in hair after using this, my house isn't covered in hair, and the dogs seem to enjoy it. I switched from one Golden to the Shepherd and the Golden came walking over trying to nudge his way in as if to say, I am not done yet! My Shepherd had terrible aggression issues towards the vacuum when we first rescued him, and this doesn't bother him at all. (We worked long and hard to re-train that behavior and I can now vacuum around him with him being calm and non-reactive. I definitely wouldn't try this on a dog that has fear or aggression towards a vacuum. I just mention this here to say that I had a dog with that behavior, and with patience and proper training I can now vacuum him, so don't give up.)
My dog's coat is left with a very soft and clean feeling. I imagine this to be because while the suction is removing the hair, it is also removing dirt, and dead skin cells.
My only issue is that I don't want to stop grooming them with this. It is so satisfying to remove all of the hair, that I had to force myself to stop.
I am going to use this every day. If you have big shedders, and you have a Dyson vacuum, you absolutely need this in your life.
