I was wondering what methods or tools you use to groom your pets?

I recently found the tool called the Furminator. I have a Schipperke which sheds a lot. This tool goes in and pulls out the hair like you wouldn't believe. My dog loves it and I swear there's less shedding as it claims. I am not one to push products but I would love to hear from anyone who may have used this tool and what you thought good or bad..

It works on cats and horses also.

I take my two airedales to a groomer and get them cut really close, because their so wild in the yard.I really dont even get the traditional airedale cut anymore, leaving the legs long and the back cut short, I never got their coats stripped!
I do leave their eyebrows long and their beards longish, Its quite pricey to bring them in, But, I guess I could get he tools myself, but their so good with the groomer and really love her. When I do let their hair grow a bit, I comb them with a metal wide toothed comb, works the best and doesnt hurt them.Airedales dont shed though since they have hair not fur, opn less you let their coats grow out too much, then they do.
The pug/bulldog I just put in my tub and wash her and do her nails and everything myself

Hi Rindy,
I have a cat with long hair and do you thing that this brush you're talking
about can be use on a cat? And do you buy it at the pet store or the vet?
Thanks.LOA

With the Dachshund it's "wash and wear" tongue.gif , but the sled dogs just get a good brushing now and then. They are pretty self-maintaining.

ctbard, I love airedales! My sister always had two at a time. They are very smart dogs. I bet your little pug/bulldog is a cutie.

LOA-they have them for cats. You can get them on Amazon. I bought mine at a Petco. I am anxious to see what it does to my dogs coat at this time of year.

Dogshirt- I had two Dachsunds growing up. I love those dogs. Like you say wash and wear.lol..

If anyone else uses a furminator what do you think of the tool. I had a Sheltie that I had groomed professionaly she would look so pretty. This dog would not let a groomer touch him..think we need the Dog Whisperer in this situation. lol.

My sled dog training partner is a professional groomer, and she swears by her FURminator. If she likes it then I'd say it's probably a very effective tool.

I would like to know where to buy the Furminator. I have a Brittany Spaniel as a house dog. In 5 years I have probably vacumed enough hair to make ten dogs. He hates baths and by the time a bath is finished we BOTH have had a flea bath. He is a real piece of work! I should get a video of him when I am playing the pipes and post it on you tube. He is probably the only one to appreciate my efforts. He gets so excited that he hops into the air pretty much in time with the music. I have to remember not to tap my foot or he "takes an interest" in my leg! I guess the drone of the pipes must stir some primitive instinct in him.

My other two pets are a pair of Pythons that belong to my Grandsons. One of the boys was bitten so I am keeping them. They are really low maintainance. Just toss them some live rats every couple of weeks keep the water bowl full and replace the bark bedding once a month. Turns out they are male and female and last year the female laid a dozen eggs. She is about to again. I have an incubator now so these should hatch and the boys will be "reptile dealers." They read that there are two color phases that are worth thousands of dollars. You should see the wish lists. Cars, computers, electronics and sporting goods. I fear they are going to be really disappointed. A lot of people no longer come to visit because of the snakes.

Swanny thanks for the reply. I know its good if your involved. thumbs_up.gif I bought my furminator at Petco. I am sure there's lots of places to purchase this tool I think Amazon sells it as well. Hope this helps. Thanks for the responses and I hope your are able to find one Patch. Let us know if you like it or not. Watch out for the legs a friend of mine had one and it wraped around his legs till he couldn't move an inch. It was kind of spooky the snake finally gave up not sure why. Oh keep us posted on the babies will you. How cool!! I had a couple of bullsnakes and a Hognose snake. I don't mind snakes at all. Unless they are venomous.
