The Furminator is designed to effortlessly and painlessly remove loose hair that your pet has shed.
This allows them to be cooler during the warm months and allows you to enjoy their presence indoors without dealing with pet hair on everything you own.
Typically, shedding happens year around for indoor dogs. Many breeds have more than one type of hair; the undercoat and the topcoat or guard hair.
Each of these hair types undergoes a hair cycle that takes about 4-6 weeks to complete.
This is a bit different for each breed and species. Although it is impossible for you to stop or reduce the amount of shedding that happens in your dog, you can help to control the hair that falls off. This not only affects their comfort level but helps to maintain your own sanity.
The undercoat is the main problem when it comes to shedding and lost undercoat is the majority of what is found laying around your house when your dog sheds.
Sometimes, depending on the breed of the dog, the undercoat is longer than the topcoat and looks like it is part of the topcoat. An animals body temperature is regulated by the undercoat. The Furminator will help to remove loose hair without pulling up attached hair that your pet still needs to keep cool or warm.
