Best Brush Ever

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
