Shedding often comes with the territory when you own a dog. But the amount and frequency of hair that is shed will vary from breed to breed.

I bought my first FURminator several months ago and have never looked back! These simply are the best shedding tool you can buy for all cats, dogs and even small pets

The FURminator was created by Angie and Dave Porter. Angie had struggled for more than a decade to find a invaluable tool to deal with dog shedding. So she finally decided to partner up with her husband and create the first and only tool to safely, efficiently and comfortably remove a pet's loose undercoat.
