Furminator

I’ve seen recommendations for the Furminator on blogs, and the pet store workers all have them and recommend them highly, so I finally broke down and bought one.

I usually “shave” (not bare, but short) my dog several times per year, because I’m always cold — so when the temperature in the house is comfortable for me, he’s keeling over from heat stroke. But as he gets older, I hate to expose his bones to the cold weather, even though he’s indoors 99% of the time.

So I figured I’d try the Furminator this winter, instead. It’s pretty cool. It’s expensive, but it works. It pulled out all of the undercoat (and loose topcoat) without actually changing the way he looks. He looks a little thinner, I mean, because all of the “puff” is gone. But his pretty coppery fur is still intact, which is nice. And he’s cooler, which is the important thing. He’s not sleeping in the hall anymore.

So call this a recommendation. If you have a dog that sheds a lot, or just a dog that belongs in a colder climate than you can provide (or a very patient and/or sedated cat), give it a try.
