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.
Before each use, you will want to read the deShedding Tool instructions completely. Also, your dog should be free of mats and tangles.
The FURminator deShedding Tool you should use in the direction of hair growth, typically starting at the base of the neck and brushing to the tail. It is important to use the deShedding Tool methodically over the entire pet, avoiding one area for an extended period of time.
The FURminator deShedding Tool is fine to use on the ears and tail. It 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 deShedding Tool. 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 Waterless Sprays can help aid in static build up when grooming your dog.
