If you have a Beagle, you know they shed. If you do not have a Beagle, you might be surprised to learn that these small short-haired animals are really hairy beasts.

There is Luna hair on my couch.

There is Luna hair in my bed.

There is Luna hair all over my clothes.

There is even Luna hair in my fridge.

We use vacuums and lint rollers to help maintain the situation, but sometimes you have to start directly with the source. FURminator does exactly that.

The FURminator deShedding Tool is a pet grooming solution for shedding. This tool safely removes loose hair from a pet’s undercoat. The loose hair is collected in the teeth of the FURminator, which is then pushed forward and released by the the blue (or white) button on top. When the hair is released it is neatly collected and easy to gather. I just had to pick up the hair clump and throw it away. With other brushes, I had to vacuum the loose hair, so this makes for much easier clean up!

I was a bit worried about how comfortable the teeth would be for Luna. Although Luna was a bit fidgety and would not sit still long enough to take photos, she did not mind it at all!

To avoid discomfort, the FURminator deShedding Tool is meant to be used only on pets with undercoats. Dogs without undercoats like Labradoodles will not benefit from the FURminator and will find it very uncomfortable. If you are unsure about your dog, you can browse through the list of dog breeds recommended for the deShedding Tool or consult your veterinarian.

The FURminator deShedding Tool also works best right after a bath, but make sure your dog is fully dry before using it! The tool can be used 1-2 times a week even without a bath. Luna always feels extra soft right after using the FURminator deShedding Tool!

The deShedding Tool comes in a variety of different sizes. To pick your FURminator deShedding Tool, find the correct combination of teeth and handle size. The teeth come in two sizes: long (longer than 2 inches) and short hair, while the handle comes in five sizes: toy, small, medium, large, and giant. The deShedding Tool even comes in sizes for cats, small animals, and horses!

Luna and I are using the medium short haired FURminator, which retails for $52.99. The other sizes range from $37.99 to $79.99, which can be a bit pricey. Amazon.com is currently offering the deShedding Tools for a bit cheaper at $18.55 to $27.99.
