If i order a new furminator i have to do it abroad, it's to expensive in shippingcosts.
Does anyone have a furminator double or second hand?

is a furminator useful for a puppy or better for older dogs and will she end up bald if i use one on her! Cos am not sure how much hair they take off!

I used mine on Wesley yesterday and it just took off a little excess hair. Didn't take off a lot at all. You couldn't tell any difference. Definitely works fine for a pup. It only got the loose/dead hair so it didn't do any damage to his pretty coat. :)

The Furminator takes much less hair off than the Coat Kings Mars, I have both of them and you really are only suppossed to use one of them about every 6 weeks.


You really have to work for Furminator to take a lot of hair off, so not to worry. :D :D :D
This is my experience.

it's a brush which gets rid of dead hairs from there coat so they wont come off on you! And don't worry its not a silly question not as silly as mine thinking you use a furminator and end up with a bald dog!

Ah, makes so much more sense now.

**sheepish smile**

I remember teachers trying to tell me that:

"the only stupid question is the one you don't ask"


These days I don't find that to always be true... so I always proceed my questions with a "sorry if I sound like an idiot... but"

Furminator will destroy your cavalier hair !
It's only for short haired dogs.

Holy crap. I just watched those videos. That's so much hair! It definitely didn't do that to Wesley's puppy coat.

Seems as though a lot of people on here like it. What is the reasoning for it destroying Cavalier hair? Looks like all the pictures and videos I ever see, have it being done on a long-haired animal.

I use a furminator and it does not do that to my dogs. I definitely do not use it that aggressively though. They were practically shaving the dogs with it in those videos! It has by no means destroyed my dogs coats.

It removes the "subhair".
Not to confuse with the "dead hair" who can be removed with a brush or a comb.
The subhair protects the skin, naturally.

I'm ok with you, a dog is not a horse ! But those dogs don't seem to suffer to be brushed.
I brush my "daughters" very softly ans every day. As I brush my hair every day :D
