If you own a husky then you know what its like to have dog hair tumbleweed blowing through your house, you know what its like to find at least one hair in your meals, to have a vehicle that is fur-wheel drive, and to never be able to wear black, to have lint roller in every room of your house. You sweep or vacuum every day and yet the hair it still there. Well take out your black dress, spit out that dog hair, and put away those lint rollers. Meet the furminator, the extreme deshedding tool. I know what your thinking, its nothing but an overpriced brush, I could get the same thing at a store in the mall for 10bucks. You're wrong, how do I know because I thought that too. And so I bough something like the furminator, sure it worked, and even with a brushing almost every day the hair was still there. On a whim I purchased the furminator, tried it once and I was hooked, it easily removed more then 3x the hair that the other brush had been removing. And it had this cool little furejector button, I mean when your brushing your dog you don't want to have to stop to pull the hair out of the brush, you just hit the button and wave the brush in the wind. With the furminator a few times a week, and sweeping your floor a few times a week the hair in your house will be DRAMATICALLY diminished if not gone!

OK, if you have bought one of these from take it to petsmart and compare it to a real one.
In particular compare the blades on each. the genuine article has around 90 teeth and the knock off has
around 60, big difference. I bought the knock off first then went to pet smart to buy a genuine Furminator.
Tried them both on my black Labrador, who is shedding now, with one pass of each Furminator on his coat
There are a number of other clues to differentiate the real from the fake, The rubber handle is different, it
has no gaps on the dimples formed in the grip, the fake does. There is no gap between the 2 mouldings that
hold the blade, the fake has a 2mm gap between them. The resin material is of a cheaper type on the fake.
The real Furminator has completely different mould split lines to the fake one, this is what first made me suspicious
as I am a toolmaker with 37 years experience of injection moulds.
My Lab did not mind the real Furminator but did not want to be touched with the fake. Sent the fake back to Amazon
and I kept the real one ($20 more). Not the bargain I was hoping but sometimes worth a try.;

Ok - I have heard about this product through a groomer. We have two fur-babies - a border-collie and a black lab and the hair around the house is crazy. For the brush we have, it's obviously not keeping up with the shedding. Purchased this today, took them outside and let me say WOW! The hair that came off is a whole lot more than what our regular brush removed. Picture a hairball the size of a small cat! Not only was the hair removal amazing, the reaction of my border-collie was equally amazing. He lay down and was just so comfortable while I brushed him. Usually he's trying to get away! My lab was also comfortable - no complaints noted. The FURminator definitely improved the hair removal, improved the process and should reduce the hair around my house. Great deal for $39.99.

I read most of the reviews and decided to buy the Furminator for my Lab mix in April 2015. I used it off and on depending on the season. It was great, until it broke into pieces while brushing my dog, earlier this month. I was shocked, since this is a pricey grooming brush. The window to get a refund/return closed a month after I bought the brush. If I had known I was going to get 15 months of minimal use out of the Furminator, I never would have bought it. Maybe it was a faulty item. I'll try exchanging it for another. I'll update my review if the company stands by their product.

I've had this Furminator for about 1 week now and really like it, it does the job. I can't compare to the real Furminator but this one works fine. Took a bit of time for shipping but the seller compensated by giving a free gift with my shipment.

OMG: I so glad I could include my photo to show proof of this product. We received ours today and spend only 20 minutes on our Saint Bernard to give it a go and all I can say is you would have thought I just sheered a sheep in the house...Not sure yet if this will keep the hair bunnies at bay but if that is what was going to come out and land on my floors we would have had to call 911 to rescue us...I could of continued but he got bored and the Mastiff wanted his turn even though it was purchased for long hair it worked amazing on his short coat as well. My product came with the FURmintor hologram seal so safe to say it is authentic. It says removes 90 percent more fur I am a believer and have the photo to prove it, and yes BTW my boys are brushed everyday prior to the arrival of our Furminator..... Just the fact all that dead fur is off him makes my day. If you are thinking about getting one stop thinking and do it you will not regret it...and no I do not work or sell Furminators this is my personal testament to a fantastic product worth every cent....

My lab x sheds like it's his job and as much as I love vacuuming, I don't love it every day. I noticed this brush at the pet store but scoffed at it's high price tag ($50+). However, Amazon saved the day again and I found it here for much cheaper (Seriously pet owners, don't shop anywhere else. I've yet to find anything cheaper in pet stores).

- This brush takes enough fur out each use to make a clone of my lab. It's both shocking and rewarding (better the brush than the couch!).
- The release button makes for an easy removal of the hair. Especially when your dog sheds like mine and you need to remove hair after each stroke.
- Easy to hold, easy to use

- The two screws on top seem to constantly come loose on mine and I find myself having to tighten them after each use.
- It doesn't hold a ton of hair.
- My dog doesn't seem to like it (bear in mind this could be particular to my dog. I assume not every dog also likes eating dead squirrels and snacking on Tupperware).

Despite the cons, it's still my preferred brush and worth the money.

This really does help take the fur off but i'm not sure it really reduced shedding on my husky/boxer mix pup however it really makes her coat look nice. She also has no complaints when I use it which is the best part she hated all of the other types of brushes i've purchased.

I am today returning to a version of this brush from a different third party vendor on this site.

Upon comparing it to one at PetSmart several differences became apparent.

Furminator has told me there have been problems with sales from

I am very disappointed with Amazon letting this take place.

A loose handle, the number of teeth, and gaps in seams where the blade is attached were a few of the differences.

Purchased two Furminators from Sea Hero and am very happy with the products and customer service I received! Sea Hero was quick to ship the products and included a complimentary comb to get the small knots behind our dogs ear. Overall, very satisfied with the products and the seller!
