We have been using shedding blades for decades. I go to the horse auctions to get a good discount on shedding blades, last auction I went to I got them for $2.00/a peice Canadian dollars.
You can also card a dogs coat with an old blade from a razor, this works great as well. Also a pumice stone works alright. I still perfer to use a high velocity dryer on my Newf in the start of the spring to get rid of all the undercoat. Works best in my books.

I just bought one of those today after reading this thread, and I took enough fur off of Jake to make another small puppy! Maybe I won't need to sweep the hardwood three times tomorrow

Do those work on short-haired dogs, or just long-haired? I'd love to try one on Zeus, but his coat is maybe a bit shorter than a lab's.

It seems to work better on short-haired dogs like Labs than long haired dogs like Border Collies, but if the dog has loose hair within its coat, the shedding blade tends to get at least some of it out regardless of coat length.

I like using a grooming stone on dogs like Boxers with very short, sparse hair.
