Ive seen it damage several golden coats and now have added several labrador coats to my ever growing bad furminator results...
The owners are so impressed with the amount of hair they see on the floor...and willing to overlook the quality of the coat that is actually on their dogs!


Save the 30-50 bucks and get a great comb and a comfy rake!

I bought the generic furminator and I just didn't enjoy using it myself so just went back to my standard (which is a ladies hair brush-one with plastic topped metal bristles). It works just fine and removes lots of undercoat.

I also bought a Furminator, and use it, probably once every couple months...It does make the dog look sleek.

But I have read reviews where overuse and not knowing how to use it, can damage a coat. We don't want that.

Bridget is a girl who LOVES being groomed, brushed with a pin brush very gently, every other day.

She hasn't been professionally groomed since May, and now that her heat is over....she's going in Friday.

Where did you buy the tree tea frangrance? Sounds yummy.........

Nothing better than a big ol' blond furry teddy bear that smells good....

I was introduced to it by a groomer and found it at my local home improvement center's pet section. I'm not sure what brand name would be used in America. I have a few of their products, the shampoo and conditioner are very gentle and the groomer loves to use it on all the puppies that come in. The spray is for between washing to help with natural oils. It really does smell good.

a flea comb is cheap and goes a great job of of removing the loose undercoat.

Not the best tool for de-matting around the ears though

Wow, We use our Furminator on our two goldens, both have totally different coats, my Mum uses hers on her golden and her golden before. My friend has one she uses on her lab and has done from a pup, no problems. She also used it on her old lab who is no longer with her. No problems or damage with any of those dogs coats. I can also add other breads to that list.

I certainly wouldn't use the brush if it damaged my dogs coats no way! not even for the fur it removed. Careful use is certainly the key, I don't know if the Furminators come in different grades but we use the Large one. No other brush has worked as well, I've been through them all over the years and wasted a fortune. An undercoat rake called a Miki rake (UK name) is great to use along side the Furminator, that is the only other brush we've found to work.

Be so careful if you do use the furminator. I have seen some coats totally ruined by it. I feel a good rake, comb and brush can accomplish the same, though it takes a bit longer, but the coat is not damaged.

Hi- I too am also new!

I love your post asking about the furminator. We have had great success with ours. However, we do not use in frequently. Mostly during shedding season. Also, if you are worried about cost, we bought ours off of ebay new for $12 each. (We bought one for our parents golden for christmas) The price was a big thing that held us off from buying one- but we are so glad we did. Hope this helps!

Darnit! I wish I found these posts sooner. I was using the furminator almost daily and noticed my girl with layered choppy hair. But it does work in getting lots of hair out.

What's a good every day brush? I have one with silver bristles and she doesn't like it at all (heck it feels uncomfy on my skin too).

Is the undercoat rake/mars coat stripper to be used with a daily brush?
