Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Has anyone bought one of these? My boyfriends mom had us buy her, and ourselves one today. They're freaking expensive, $70 for two of them Shocked

anyway, they looked like they work and won't cut the fur like the furminator does but has anyone personally tried one?

I personally have an Oster Undercoat Rake that I picked up on Amazon for about $25 bucks. Looks like the same thing... it really is AMAZING. It doesn't catch or cut Nikolai's coat at all - it just glides through and gets all sorts of hair out. I highly recommend it.

i really hope it works the same way then! embry and zoeys coats are so different, a regular undercoat rake works great on her, but just a normal brush works great on embry so i hope it works for both of them

Looks just like the coat king. Our groomer used to use one to deshed dogs all the time. Seemed to work well.

I have this for Drogo. Pretty sure I bought it from PetSmart for $20 and I'm happy with it so far. I also have a Furminator and as it stands now, I prefer the ShedMonster. Sometimes I feel like I'm ripping fur out with the Furminator whereas I'm only removing loose fur with the ShedMonster. I'll be able to give a more accurate review once Drogo blows his coat!

I stopped using my Furminator...I've been really loving my double row rake with rotating pins - especially on Storm. He seems to have a really thick under coat, and he seems to blow coat by body part: first was his back, then his hips, then his butt, now his neck...THAT'S MY STORM! I love you

Kate - maybe I can borrow yours to see how it would work for Ginger since she doesn't seem to have the thick undercoat like Storm...?

Yes we do!!! - What's your weekend look like?

I found a 50 ft lead for $20 so I bought it since I'm gonna start doing training on their prey drive when it cools off Smile

I'm taking Friday off and still trying to figure out a place to go camping on Saturday. We have our second appointment with the behaviorist on Sunday evening.
