I finally purchased a Zoom Groom yesterday and I must say its awesome. I first gave rufus a bath and scrubbed him with the ZG, then after he dried I brushed him with it. Works wonders, he is nice and smooth again. Now I can pet him without getting a handful of hair. LOL. Im still debating on the furminator. We shall see.
I've heard great results using the furminator.
It sure is nice to feel a healthy, soft ;Dcoat after brushing!
