Best Brush Ever

15 posts in this topic

If anyone has ever wondered what the best brush for your dog the FURminator brushes are amazing. Everytime I brush my dog I get a hair ball the size of a small cat. You do have to be careful not to brush too much or too hard or you will take off to much hair. I highly recommend it.

Don't know what I would do without that brush. Have been using one on my Choc lab for 2 years.

Are they seriously worth the $$$? The price seems outrageous, but I have heard such good things about them...

For me it was. I couldn't believe how well it worked when I first used it. I actually borrowed it from a friend before I picked one up. My brother got one after he used the one I bought. His yellow lab is a shedder, after working her over for 3 days with it she stops shedding bad for quite awhile. For me My Lab has such a dense thick coat it gets out all the undercoat and he doesnt get hot spots anymore.

Everyone who has used mine ends up buying one for their dog. No other brush compares IMO. The price is a bit outragous but it changes a 5-10 minute brush job into a matter of seconds maybe 2 minutes. It amazes me everytime I use it.

I looked at getting one, then realized it looks exactly like the bottom piece of a hair clippers (the kind to shave your neck or head). SO I went home and unscrewed the bottom part from my clippers and holy cow, I couldnt believe how much hair it pulled out. Obviously doesnt have a nice handle or anything but her coat really looks good right now and I think I saved $50. SO far so good at least

Funny that you say that. Your right they do look just like the blades from a clipper. I want to go take mine apart to see if they work the same now!!

What size of one should a person use say for a setter bread or lab. They range from $25 to $50 at fleet.

My wife bought one at Mills over the weekend for, I thought she said, $28, which to me is spendy for a brush. We have a 65 lb Lab and I was surprised at how much dead hair it removed, especially those little clumps that wouldn't come out with our other brush. Our lab has to be more comfortable now in this heat, without that extra layer of hair. Her coat definately looks better now so I guess it was worth it.

We picked up one a fleet farm a while back for our Britt. Works great. Does by far the best job out of all of the brushes we have tried.

I'm not all that impressed yet. It just feels like I could brush for days and keep getting hair. The shedding does not seem to be greatly reduced yet either. I guess I'll keep trying.

It does get out more hair than any other brush I have ever used though.

Mojo thats how it started for me with my Lab. One has a really thick coat and the other one is alot thinner. The one with the thick coat I could brush for days till my arm got tired or I was sick of all the hair 2" deep in 3 foot radius around me. I kept at it making sure not to do the same spot to often as the fur started to diminish. Now I hook him up twice a week and it goes really fast without the cloud of fur anymore. The shedding is undercontrol for us now also.

My lab is still shedding a little now into July. Not bad but that one of the little joys of being a pet owner. It's a losing battle but as soon as I start winning it going to start getting cold. I can see why some people like labradoodles.

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick! 
    • In regards to casement windows, I have always been a fan.... Primarily, because the harder the wind blows, the better seal that you are getting. Don't get me wrong - there are drawbacks such as size restrictions, maintenance of the cranking mechanism, etc... but I like them
    • walleye, Pfunk, monster, we need one more bird to qualify for bragging rights.  You guys still after them?
    • Kept getting pushed back from moving into the new house, but finally heading up to open the camper tomorrow afternoon.  Bought a new leaf blower to keep the outside rugs clean.  On mega clearance at Wally world for 10 bucks...  Told the Mrs. it would've been foolish of me NOT to buy it.  She wasn't impressed.
    • Rot can also be completely separate from the quality of the window.  If you maintain high moisture in the house it will first collect on windows then can drip down and rot out the surrounding frame.
    • Well it looks like you have already found your plumbing company!
    • On the cheat meal issue.  There is only a minor setback physically if you limit to once a week.  What most people don't look at is the psychological benefit to a cheat meal.  The truth is most people who run a diet(excluding athletes and those that maintain a fit lifestyle for prefessional reasons) sneak snacks hear and there.  Sure some dont or dont for a time but most do.  The cheat meal gives you one day or meal all week to look forward to with those snacks to splurge.  This is by far easier than someone saying the diet is three months, or even better, 'I'm never eating processed sugar again'.
