It's an amazing tool. I think I have the only Aussie in town with a sleek coat. Still longish, but it lays flat to her skin and her waves bounce when she walks. Looks really cool in the sunlight.

It's even better on our cat (siamese mix). His coat has always shed little itty bitty skinny hairs that actually float around the house. The furminator collected enough to build another cat.

I've seen absolutely no effect on either animals outer coat or skin.

Forgot about that, I use it on Inky too and it has done wonders for him too! No more clouds of black hair floating around or all over the clothes!!

I have one and use it on Chloe. It works really good, but she doesn't like it that well. It's almost like it pulls her hair.

Thanks so much Jessie for the summer siggy!!!

I've used it on Sawyer with limited success. He likes the 10-bladed Oster undercoat rakes better and they work just as well. Better, since he's not squirming around so much.

But I'm glad that Manni and you love it; that's all that matters.

It was actually a group of groomers that told me about only being able to go in the same spot 4 times, etc. Maybe they use more pressure?

There was some shedding thing, "seen on tv" type thing that I was given for Christmas and it pulled out the dogs hair. Both of my dog breeds are listed under the approved dog list.

Where did you find it on sale? If I can get one cheaper I'd like to. My GSD sheds like crazy and nothing has helped, even shaved her once (plus her hair kind of grew in funny on her back legs so I was hoping that would help it grow back right) but shaving her didn't help with anything, not the shedding (just smaller hairs all over) or the hair growing back right.

Back from EliN's .... she tried it on Hunter ( Lab ) and couldn't believe it ! Then NashNSeger came over and Jan tried it on Seger ( Golden ).... She had just brushed him , but boy did the undercoat fly !!! Both girls are ordering tonight ! I found mine on Amazon .... I could have gotten it used for $3. less ( $35. ) but decided to go new . So .. Lab coat , Golden coat and a very curly Golden/??? mix , I highly recommend it . Agree though doesn't need much pressure .
A light for all who are crossing dark times.

To tell you the truth I was impressed by what I've seen here about this grooming tool. I'm going to find one and give it a try on my long haired dogs.

Has anyone used this on a short hair breed? I have an Italian Greyhound and I saw that greyhounds are on the recommended list of breeds. Does anyone have experience using this on short hair breeds?
