    DefaultBrushing...I'm just curious...

    Does anyone ever come to the end of the hair? Do you EVER reach a point when there is no more loose hair coming out???

    I brush the boys for at least 15 minutes apiece, and I am still getting hair. Am I not doing it long enough? I go on Simon until it feels like his undercoat is smoothed and not hanging on the slicker brush anymore. About 2-3 slickers full. I Zoom Groom Angus (btw, the best thing ever invented) until it's not coming off in gobs anymore, but it is still coming.

    I have a question...Does Angus have a Kong? Whenever I try to use the Zoom Groom, Jacob acts like I am rubbing him with his Kong, and tries to chase it! We don't have this problem with a "normal" brush, but a ZG is so much easier to clean, that I would like to switch back to it!

    No there's always hair! It never ends *rocks back and forth* I usually zoom groom until my arm hurts then I use the normal brush until I get tired of brushing.


    Jenn, Molly does the same thing with the ZG. If I put it down she snatches it and starts to roll it around on the groud. I always assume she's wondering where the hole is :P

    Thought I was the only one soon to have a bald lab!!! LOL! Henery's furs are coming out in clumps with the ZoomGroom, and the slicker brush is filling up like there's no tomorrow! God forbid I miss a day of brushing!

    Jenn, LMBO! Yes, Angus does that exact thing with the Zoom Groom! ROFL! He thinks we're going to have a party when I break it out. :P

    The only thing I can use on Tank is the Z&G.

    You take a big old lug like him. Subject him to bone cutting, shots, scans, needles galore and he does not flinch.

    Now..............bring out any kind of slicker type brush and after two swipes the boy goes nuts and acts like i am killing him.

    one would think I'm erasing Zoe, the way I go to town w/the Zoom Groom. She still sheds. We also do the slicker as well as regular brush, but to no avail.

    No end in sight, but it is not "clumping" at the moment. I know that it is a brief reprieve.... Same thing here with the Zoom Groom!! I cannot leave it anywhere as Murph will take off with it!
