No matter how much people love their dogs, the number one complaint is the shedding problem. Even a Chihuahua can manage to slough off what seems like enough hair for a Saint Bernard fur coat. And even if your furniture is color coordinated to match your dog’s coat, you probably aren’t thrilled with dog hair in your oatmeal.
The Furminator company has some new products which are just now on the market to help you when shed happens.
I have raved about the Furminator in earlier posts. Now the company has gone one two better.
The Furminator double edge deShedding tool has a twin set of stainless steel blades to remove hair twice as fast. Like the Furminator, it doesn’t cut the top coat, but gently removes dead hair down to the undercoat.
The Furminator Furejector deShedding tool. This is my favorite. It has a button that pushes the removed hair from the edge so you don’t have to stop and pull the hair off. Perfect for squirmy dogs and cats with Attention Deficit Disorder.
And for doggie bathtime:
- DeShedding shampoo to keep the skin and coat healthy
- DeShedding solution which helps release the undercoat and the loose hair
- TubNub bathing brush has rubber nubs that massages shampoo into the pet hair to help remove deep down dirt and loose hair
- Microfiber Towel which seems to suck the water out of the wet dog before she can shake and wreak doggie revenge all over the room. It’s machine washable and you will probably find a lot of other ways to use it.
These Furminator products are available at your local pet stores.
The Swiffer Sweeper is great for daily cleaning of dog hair from vinyl or hardwood floors. As an experiment, I vacuumed and then ran over the floor with one of the disposable pads. It picked up dog hair that the vacuum had left behind and was far easier than getting out the vacuum cleaner. It uses disposable wet or dry pads
A while back the Poodles, dogs and I had a contest to win glow-in-the-dark toys from Two Knobby Tires. Bungirl from Texas and her pack won. Here is a video of the toys in action from her blog. These really look like fun for the whole family.
I will be having another contest when I can save enough for the postage sometime soon-ish.
