    DefaultFurminator- Yea or Nay

    What do you all think about the Furminator? I used mine on Bean today and he really enjoyed it, more so than his regular brush. Are you supposed to keep "furminating" until the fur stops coming out? I see that there's a newer model out now- does the old one cut the fur? The fur that I removed looks like dead fluffy stuff.
    What other good brushes can you recommend?

    I love the Furminator! There seems to be a definite "Like it" or "No way" over the furminator. Some people say it breaks the hairs, I can't say I've noticed that when using it on Lexi.

    It seems like the ones against it are those with show dogs, which I can totally understand. They are judged on the quality of their coats.

    For a regular family-pet like my Lexi, I love it. She is not a hugely happy when I brush her, so the Furminator allows me to make progress without having to brush her too long.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    The furminator does not work as well on my labs as the zoom groom or the shedding blade; but it does work wonders on the golden.

    Took the words right off my keyboard. I also have the Zoom Groom and Mya prefers that, but the Furminator gets a lot more in a lot less time. Just remember to be very careful along the back bone and less padded areas.

    Oh my ! Eddie loves it! He is scared at first and then when he realizes what is happening he lies down and falls asleep. I then have to manhandle him to turn over because otherwise he would be bald on one side. You have to be careful about using it in one spot too long but it has never bothered Eddie. It does not work so well on Fanny,her coat is shorter but Eddie has border collie in him so it works better for him..

    I also use the zoom groom on them when they are blowing coat and it is awesome.

    Theo LOVES the Furminator. When we get it out he comes right over and flops down for his brushing. I've found that the key is to be very gentle. I heard initially that it could damage the outer coat, but I've seen no evidence of that. Since starting to use it (we used to use a Zoom Groom for topcoat and a comb for undercoat) we've had fewer problems with springtime itching.
