It’s the time of the year when it gets hot outside and our dogs start to shed like crazy. In the past, I have used dog brushes and a few combs to try and combat the shedding, however none of them seemed to work out all that great. Sadie is constantly shedding and she sheds even more this time of the year. Every time I finish sweeping the house I swear I’m looking down at The Adam’s Family’s Cousin It.
When ShedMonster asked me if I would like the opportunity to try out their de-shedding tool, I was more than happy to oblige. I have heard of de-shedding tools in the past, but had never tried one out before.
I found the ShedMonster, which is specifically designed for long haired dogs to be an amazing tool. In just a few short minutes of using the ShedMonster de-shedding tool, I was surrounded by hair. It was blowing in the wind and creating little tumbleweeds on my backyard patio. The hair just kept coming out. I didn’t realize how much hair Sadie had. The best part though came later because, using the ShedMonster really helped to reduce the amount of hair I had to sweep up in the house later that week.
Sadie does not appreciate being brushed at all. However, she decided she could tolerate the ShedMonster de-shedding tool. It did not pull her hair and still managed to penetrate deeply into her undercoat, moving through the outer layers and extracting the hair smoothly. She did not yelp or turn to growl at the tool once. This was surprising because usually Sadie gets a bit snippy after even just a few short minutes of grooming. Of course as with any brush you still want to avoid using the tool around sensitive areas like the face, groin, or feet.
Sadie and I love the ShedMonster and recommend it to anyone who has a dog that sheds like crazy. Order the ShedMonster and find out how easy it can be to brush your dog.
