The FURminator deShedding Tool is designed to remove the undercoat and loose hair without cutting or damaging the topcoat on double-coated breeds. The FURminator deShedding Tool removes the undercoat and loose hair.
Breeds that are considered "non-shedding" have single coats and do not have an undercoat. If the pet does not have an undercoat, there isn't any hair for the deShedding tool to remove.
Indoor dogs tend to shed year round. Each hair (topcoat/guard hair and undercoat) goes through a hair cycle just like human hair. This cycle typically takes 4-6 weeks to complete depending on breed and species. You will never stop your pet's shedding, but you can dramatically reduce shedding by using the FURminator deShedding Tool. The FURminator deShedding Tool will remove any coat that has shed from the pet's skin. This includes the topcoat (guard hair). The undercoat is the underlying problem of shedding and is the majority of hair that you see in your house. In some long hair breeds of dogs, the undercoat is longer and gives the appearance of being the topcoat.
The undercoat regulates the pet's body temperature. Since the deShedding tool does not cut or damage the coat, you do not have to worry about removing coat that your pet needs to stay warm or keep cool. Undercoat that has shed from your pet's skin, but gets trapped under the topcoat, can cause mats or tangles to form.

We recommend using the FURminator deShedding Tool 1-2 times a week for 10-20 minutes each session. You may need to use the deShedding tool more frequently during heavy shedding seasons.
The FURminator deShedding Tool is fine to use on the ears and tail. The deShedding tool is non-abrasive to the skin and removes the undercoat and loose hair. The ears and tail are typically sensitive areas for most pets, so extra caution will need to be taken when brushing these areas. Since the ears and tail typically mat easily, we advise to check for and remove mats and tangles before using the deSheddingtool. With regular use, you should see a reduction in the amount of mats and tangles that form in the ears and tail because you are removing the undercoat that gets caught in the topcoat causing mats to form.
Using FURminator brand of waterless sprays can help aid in static build up when grooming your pet.
