Dyson Grooming Tool

Hi, we just got ourselves a Dyson canister vacuum. We had a Dyson in the past but it was sold in our move and now with Sandy loosing her puppy fur, we decided to get one again. We love the power.
Anyways, I noticed on their website they now have a grooming too.

http://www.dyson.com/tools/g/groom-t...groomtool.aspx

Has anyone used it. I am considering it but I am worried that the powerful suction might hurt or pull out too much hair. I already brush Sandy everyday to keep down the shedding and she loves to be brushed so the added convenience of not having to clean up would be nice. I don't want to turn her favorite brushing into a nightmare if she doesn't like it.

Pros/Cons.

I've heard good things about them. In fact I have one in the mail right now on the way for me. My Dyson DC-25 Animal has been my best friend! Now perhaps this brush will be the dogs best friend.

I'd say it depends on the dog. Some like being vacuumed, some don't.

Dyson has a return policy. You'll never know unless you give it a go!

Please post after you've given it a try and let me know what you and your dog thought about it.
I love my vacuum so does Sandy, I may just have to give it a try.

Well I'll work on a review. Apparently Max does not like the Dyson (and I didn't even turn it on yet!!!) haha. He goes running up the stairs! I'm just going to have to ease him into using it. I used the tool on him tonight and he loved it - but it just wasn't connected to the vacuum.

This could prove to be interesting and perhaps entertaining too!!!

With the Golden and now the Leonberger, I was considering getting an upright as our canister vac's bag is too small and aging.

Bogey (our 7 month old GR hates the vacuum in general). Going to have to look at how long the attachment hose is

FYI,

Amazon has them for $46.87....$23 less than Dyson is selling them for.

Dyson Grooming Tool

I've had one of the grooming tools I use with my DC25 for almost 2 years. My golden was accustomed to my vacuum at a young age so it doesn't bother him. I use the tool with and without the vacuum without any problems.

Does it reduce shedding more so than brushing? I'm considering getting one, but if brushing is just as good, I'll pass. I use an undercoat rake, pin brush, and slicker almost every day, yet there's still hair all over the place.

I don't know about reducing shedding but compared to brushing I like it way better because I personally hate dealing with the hair!!!! it is nice because it sucks up into the vacuum cleaner and you don't have all the fly aways like you do with brushing. I am working on getting lady used to it she hates the vacuum but sadie LOVES it!!!!!
