Like I said, look on Amazon. The large one is currently $21 (I've seen it go down to $17 on sale!) I was really pleasantly surprised! FURminator Large Yellow deShedding Tool with 4-Inch Edge: Home & Garden

I bought mine on Craigslist for about $20 (it's the largest one they have) and I love it. It works great on Lacey and it's not stripping the outer coat, but all the downy crap underneath. I don't use it a whole lot, only really during shedding time, but I really love it.

It did not, however, work very well on the long haired cat, but her fur had some mats in it.

I have one I use during shedding season on Muffin. I love it for that, because it pulls out all the undercoat way better than a regular brush.

I never thought of using it on a terrier.... Let us know how it goes!

You never know how strong you are until strength is the only option you have left.

handstripping is just about the same amount of work as a furminator, but with better results. in order to use a furminator without it causing irritation, bald spots, etc, you need to use it sparingly and often (10-15 minutes everyday). handstripping is about the same, time wise, and is about the same amount of work on your hands. but handstripping will get a better result, and will be more worth the time.

Clipping will not do anything bad to your dog, except make the hair softer. this isnt a bad thing, unless you plan on showing. so you can ust get he dog clipped if you want.

Target sells a cheaper version, for around $5-10. I have one, it works great on the sheltie mix and the double-coated kitty.
