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.

    • Correct.  Stinkhorns.
    • Sorry, HW signed the agreement then handed it over to Billy C.  So, you're right, clearly the democrats fault.
    • Who signed the NAFTA treaty? The House of Representatives approved NAFTA, by a vote of 234 to 200 on November 17, 1993, and the Senate voted 60 to 38 for approval on November 20. It was signed into law by President Clinton on December 8, 1993, and took effect on January 1, 1994.   Derp.....
    • I say we go to Mars and make the Martians pay for it.
    • No idea what you're talking about, but I'll assume it's complimentary.
    • Probably a good call since Trump's assertion that Billy C. signed NAFTA into law is false.
    • Any one have one of the newer automatic King Quest Satellites? I just bought a new Ice Castle, and my old own had the Winegard crank up style dish which I had no problem with. They are trying to tell me to buy a new  king portable one, but I am not sure it is worth the extra money. I only know of one person with the newer one, and he said he liked the older crank up one better. He said he was always losing signal with automatic one. Any feed back would be great.. Thanks
    • Hey all, I recently upgraded from my homemade wheelhouse to a new hydraulic ice castle and had a few questions I forgot to ask at the dealer. 1. For the hydraulic frame, does anyone bring extra hydraulic fluid with? Wouldn't imagine to need it unless you had a leak but I don't know much about hydraulics. Ever need to change out the fluids? 2. Ladders. After buying and trying to get on the top bunk I noticed it is extremely hard to climb up there (especially after a few beers) are they suppose to come with a ladder? was going to call the dealer and try and make them throw one in. I made a temporary ladder which works fine but wondering what other people have done. 3. DNR Registration numbers. My previous house I had some decals made up and looked real nice. However that had smooth siding. Anyone have any advice on where to put numbers that look good? Suppose I could just be extra careful in applying to the ribbed siding so they get applied smooth with the grooves but wondering where everyone else puts theirs. Don't really want to do the old white square boat numbers on there. 4. Microwaves. Anyone have any recommendations on a good microwave to install? I have a lot of empty space above the hydraulics near the kitchen I think a microwave would be perfect, and there is already an outlet there for charging the hydraulic system battery - just wondering if anyone had a good one for travel/low power draw. 5. Any recommendations on generators? Was going to go buy a new Honda 2000 have heard good things about them and always been a Honda fan. that should run a small microwave I'm thinking? My Honda 1000 bit the dust last year - mainly because of my own mistake haha 6. Sound system. Sounds okay in there but it isn't the upgraded premium speakers. Wondering if anyone had some new speakers they liked and possibly a new deck. 7. Rod holders. Wanted to throw some fishing pole holders on the wall in the bathroom. Was having a hard time finding any I liked at the stores or online. Anyone have something that worked well for them, and didn't fall out during transit? I had one last year I had mounted under a cabinet and of course the first weekend with my new crappie pole fell off and broke!   Figured I'd see if anyone had any advice on what worked well for them. Thanks in advance!!
