A Hairy Review

Oh, glorious day! The UPS man, who I normally bark at, brought our monthly Chewy.com item to review! I was all excited! What do it be? Fishy noms? A bone? I knew it would be something yummy for me since I had the talk with mom about no more kitty-themed stuffs. I was soooo excited! I couldn't wait to see  and eat it...

Hmm...this doesn't smell like a treat....


For SOME reason mom decided to try out the Furminator Dual Brush thingy. Once I realized it do be a brush, I hightailed my fluffy butt right out of there. I sat far away and gived mom the stink eye. Now, for some reason, Duncan do love to be brushed, so mom got him to try this thing out.

The brush do have two sides, one is with the small needly things and the other more normal brush bristles. The brush bristles were more of a pain than anything, since the Duncan fur did stick to it in no time and was a pain to get out. So then we did try the needly side.

The evidence is above. The bottom floofy pile is from the new Furminator brush. The top floofy pile is from our old Furminator rake thing. Even after using the New brush, the old one was better at getting more of Duncan's furs quicker. Which is good, because for some reason mom doesn't want to spend hours brushing a dog.

Maybe the brush is better for dogs with longer hair? Mom did get it on me for a few swipes and didn't get too much. I think the needles do be too far apart for maximum Duncan de-floofing. It works, just takes more time.

Overall, we do only have to give this 2 our of 4 paws. I think it do just depend on fur types,  but the birds did appreciate it. They do have some warm birdie nests for sure now!


  1. Hi Anna and Duncan and B.P..
    We are thinking that this Brush thingy is GRRRREAT to use in COMBINATION with the actual Furminator DeShedder tool... THAT is how our mom did it.... and the Combination Brush made it so the DeShedder worked BETTER... they are like Furends... One helps the OTHER...
    Very nice Review.

  2. Mama is sooo glad we don't shed...so we don't have to worry about furminator thingies....We are with you Anna...brushes are scary!

  3. We too use a variety of brushing tools. The pin brush side of this brush is very good for our undercoats. We have one of those too and Mom does find it helpful with our thick coats. We hope you all got some treats for trying out that brush.
