I mainly just use the undercoat rake on Hudson. I did pull out the cat's zoom groom after this thread and tried it on him. He seemed to like it, but it didn't remove as much hair as the undercoat rake does.

Okay, the Zoomgroom is the most amazing thing on the face of the planet. I used it on my bunnies, they're infamous for shedding like crazy but it being impossible to get the fur off them. This thing...omg, it was like magic. They're all so pretty now.

Do zoom grooms really work that well on longer coat types? I have a rubber curry brush for Juno and it's fantastic, but it is literally the only type of comb that does anything on her coat.... and for some reason I just have a hard time imagining it doing anything to dogs with more hair lol.

I suppose I could totally just take 5 minutes to try it hahaha it's just mind boggling to me.

They worked really well for helping get the hair out on shepherds, goldens, borders, aussies, etc when we did shed-x. Of course you needed something else for the really fluffy bits and for any tangles

I was really surprised when I took Susie up to the Self-groomers for a bath a couple of weeks ago, that she did not shed any hair after her bath. Usually there is hair flying everywhere as they have a powerful blow dryer. I am not complaining but wonder why there was no hair coming out as there always has been not matter the time of year. She is a Bernese cross.

I love my stripping knives for getting out undercoat. They don't cut hair the way a furminator does, and they come in different sizes for different parts of the body. I use a coarse on Watson's body coat, and a fine on his head. I know some people swear by the Mars Coat King and others say it cuts coat, so I haven't tried it.

Also, I've been using the stripping knives on the bunnies (the fine one, specifically) and it's awesome. Hands down the best grooming tool I've tried on them. I think I need to get a Zoom Groom now and try that on them.

These are the only tools I use for Recon...

I don't like the zoom groom on him because it knots his hair and doesn't really get much out of him like it does Frag or Sir.

I just use a nice basic shampoo and some demat spray... I have heard great things about The Stuff, but haven't been able to try it yet.

I have a Zoom Groom, but not for normal brushing. I use it when the dogs are in the mudsink to get them all lathered up.

I have:
a round pin brush
a fine-tooth comb
a wide-toothed comb
a de-shedding comb
a slicker brush
an undercoat rake

For shears I have:
straight shears
curved shears for feet
a small pair of straight shears for between toes and paw pads and whiskers
two pairs of thinning shears, one is finer than the other


I also ditto The Stuff. Careful where you spray it, it supposedly can make floors really slick if you get it all over the floor.

Oh it definitely makes floors slick.


Not that we found out the hard way, or anything.

I gave away way too much grooming stuff when I moved last year. I miss my stripping knives!

Right now I use a metal comb, slicker, pin brush, and zoom groom.
