I keep looking at the Furminator brushes in the pet shop, because they are really expensive, but I know pet owners that swear by them. The videos of it in use are impressive, but then you would expect a promotional video to be or it wouldn't be doing its job. I'd just like to get some of the loose fur out and in the bin, instead of the carpet, furniture, walls,bed... I know the battle against shedding isn't one I am going to win, but I'd like to give a better showing than I am, with my little standard brush. Does anyone use one and what are your experiences? Are they worth the rather huge cost, which is currently putting me off, and do they do better than the standard grooming brushes?
