Shedding is a problem we all have to deal with but for some with health problems like asthma it is a serious issue.

Aussies shedding fur is normal and can occur year round. It's better to use a brush or a deshedding tool otherwise the shed fur will be left everywhere in your house.

We've all had those embarassing moments when friends or family are visiting and a massive dust bunny migrates across the kitchen floor. Shedding and the time necessary to sweep and vacuum are one of the biggest complaints of dog owners.

Fortunately, there are dog grooming products available to help us get shedding under control. One popular tool promoted by pet groomers and veterinarians is the FURminator deShedding Tool. I recently had the opportunity to test some of their dog grooming supplies first hand.

After receiving my package the first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was the surprising quality of the FURminator deShedding Tool itself. It is very sturdy with a comfortable rubber handle that feels like it will stand up to years of dog grooming service. Reviews I had read were very positive so my expectations were high. I wasn't disappointed.

Using the deShedding Tool is as easy as brushing. It's designed to remove underoat and loose hair in dogs and cats. It reduces shedding up to 90 percent and releases the natural oils to provide a healthy and shiny topcoat.

As with most great inventions, necessity was the inspiration for creator, professional groomer Angela Porter. For years she attempted to find a tool to combat shedding -- the number one complaint of her customers. Porter worked with her husband, David Porter, to develop and patent the unique FURminator deShedding Tool design."

"We spent over a decade using every product and device in the industry to address shedding and didn't find anything that we felt was very effective or eliminated the undercoat hair that is the source of the problem," Porter added. "So we decided to create tools of our own."

The deShedding Tool uses a patented stainless steel edge that works without cutting or damaging the topcoat. It removes the undercoat and loose hair and reduces the amount of airborne allergens that cause allergic reactions and helps prevent matting.

The FURminator is a Great Gift Idea
For any Dog Lover!

You will be amazed at the amount of fur that is removed during a de-shedding session. It's easy to see that your dog would be more comfortable with frequent de-shedding. Of course, it's also much better to get all that fur out and be able to get it into the trash all at once instead of it coming out on its own all over the house on furniture, carpets and bedding.

NOTE: When using the

go in the direction of the fur
NOT against it!

They also offer a full line of products to help with dog shedding. They have shampoos, conditioners (for both dogs and cats), waterless shampoos and conditioners, dog food supplements and dog treats. (Note: dog treats contain wheat gluten in case your Aussie is sensitive to this ingredient.)

All of these products work together to promote healthier skin and coat and enhance the effectiveness of the deShedding tools by decreasing the amount of hair that pets shed.

I would recommend FURminator products to my friends and family as they offer high quality products that are well worth the price. You can order the deShedding Tool and have it shipped right to your door. There are also versions for cats and horses.

UPDATE: New Version features FURejector button that cleans and removes loose hair from the tool with ease.



It's hard to beat FURminator's sturdy construction.


It's a little pricey... but considering the quality it's well worth it.
