    We have 3 large dogs and have used the medium sized brush and it works great.

    I ordered mine from this place:

    http://www.entirelypets.com/furminator.html

    These guys have the LOWEST prices I have seen and I just e-mailed Ponti about it.

    Max, my sealpoint is thicker haired than Milo and it is a good thing, he loves the Furminator.......Milo's fearful of it.

    I get GOBS of hair out of Max with mine and he will lay down right on the floor for me while I use it on him.

    It's a GREAT thing to have and I hope Ponti doesn't spend 10 dollars more at the pet stores......I had mine in less than a week from etirelypets.com.

    :thumbsup:

    For medium to long hair dogs they are awesome!!! For short hair (boxer) I use a rubber lint brush, works just as well for him.

    Our Iggy is terrified of a brush. I got a brainstorm in Sally Beauty Supply one day and picked up one of the short shampoo brushes that fits into the palm of my hand. Using it, I can brush her and she doesn't realize it.

    I have a similar undercoat rake for Fred but it's not a Furminator. If I ever have to replace it, I will try one. All you have to do is hold the brush out and Fred will brush himself he loves it so much. :)

    Hate to go agains't the trend..... But we bought one and found it "Not so hot". The cheaper brands seemed to work better.

    I had the same experience with mine. Tried it on my Chow Mix and my Pit. Giving them a bath was quicker. easier, and more effective.

    I had heard nothing but good things about them, so I did give it an honest try. I will say that they are stand-up about their 30 day money back guarantee. Try it, if it doesn;t work for you they will give you your cash back.

    I bought the large one from Amazon.com because it was the lowest price I could find. We have 2 golden retrievers and it works like it's advertised, for me. I filled up a 5 gal bucket with hair first time out. I do think that it's overpriced, though.

    I don't use it nearly as much as I should on my dogs -- but it works great!
