Best Brush for Heavy Shedding Dog - Fluffy's reviews

Best Brush for Heavy Shedding Dog - Fluffy's reviewsRuff! Ruff! Hello, my fluffy pack. Today I'll be doing a review on the best brush for a heavy shedding dog.

As you all may know by now, I'm very fluffy. Just like my name says and I shed a lot. I leave a trail of hair wherever I go.

My hair is all over mommy's clothes, it's on the couches, my bed and Buffy says he eats at least a few every day. Must be his own hair! Grrr!

Apparently Buffy does not shed, but that's just because he can't be blamed for anything. I'm always on the couch so it's easy to point fingers at me.

To be honest, it's not a big problem. Who cares? I love spreading little pieces of myself everywhere.

Unfortunately, not everyone sees it that way. So cleaning up my hair is something we have to do.

Mommy is the slave around here and has to make sure my hair does not end up in the food. You missed a spot slave Renza!

I went ahead and looked for some deshedding tools or brushes to get rid of my loose hair.

Anyway, Renza can use it when she tries to groom us. It will make cleanup easier for her. I know right? I'm super sweet. I'm not mommy's sweetie-pie for nothing.

I even help her clean. Well, it's more like moral support, but she says I'm a good little helper. Staring and following her around to keep her company is my job.

If you don't want to eat your dog's hair, you can check out my list. I know some of you enjoy the taste of yummy doggie hair, so I'll see you when I publish my next post. Ruff! Ruff!

1. Furminator de-shedding tool

Furminator deshedding tool reviewThe Furminator is apparently the holy grail when it comes to removing loose hair from your dog. It's a perfect coat de-shedder and gets tons of good reviews and the doggies seem to love it too.

I bite my current brush and mommy has to give me something else to chew on while brushing me. It releases the hair by pushing a button like this one, but this one looks more like my comb and brush combined.

Let's look at some of its features plus pros and cons.

Furminator Features:

  • High-quality stainless steel teeth rake through topcoat to safely and easily remove loose hair and undercoat
  • Furejector button that releases hair from the brush
  • Ergonomic handle that is comfortable and easy to use
  • Available in all sizes and styles for dogs of different sizes and coat types
  • Effectively removes loose hair and undercoat on most dogs
  • Does not damage top coat
  • Reduces shedding
  • Easy to use
  • Durable, comfortable design
  • More expensive than other tools
  • Breed and hair specific. If you have multiple dogs with different hair you have to buy one for each

There's a reason why the Furminator is the best-rated de-shedding brush and also why it's so expensive. It's made of good quality material and comes with a lot of great features that gets the job done.

For best results, it's recommended to deShed immediately after washing and drying your dog and to use only on a completely dry coat. Also, brush your dog outside to help reduce vacuum time in your home. 

The Furminator is really expensive for a de-shedding brush, so let's look at other best-rated brushes that are cheaper but does a good job at removing loose hair from your dog.

2. DakPets Deshedding Brush

DakPets Deshedding Brush review
Oh, look! Another Furminator. Just Kidding!

The DakPets de-shedding brush is just as popular as the Furminator and also gets tons of good reviews.

It is a good option if you want something cheaper.

This de-shedding brush does a great job removing hair from dogs and a lot of doggie parents are happy with the product.

Unlike the Furminator dog brush that comes in different models depending on the size of your dog or hair type, the DakPets is a one tool fits all.

Let's looks at its features.

DakPets Deshedding Brush Features:

  • Non-irritation 100mm-4 inch heavy duty replaceable stainless steel pet comb 
  • Durable rubber handle for a non-slip grip 
  • Comes in blue, yellow and pink colors 
  • Sizes are small, medium and large 
  • For pets with short, medium or long hair

  • Not expensive 
  • Can be used for dogs and cats 
  • Removes loose dog or cat hair from undercoat while gaining shinier top coat 
  • Unconditional lifetime money back guarantee 
  • Suitable for pets with single and double coats
  • Handle not ergonomic 
  • Not for giant breeds and grooming-intensive pet coats 
  • No ejector to remove the hair from the brush.
Mommy is really cheap when it comes to buying stuff so she might like this one. It does the job for half the price.

I keep forgetting I'm the one that will be brushed with these things. Don't worry! I've gotten really good at hiding.

Plus she's really lazy so this brush will probably join my other brush in the bin of dog products that will never get used. Eat hair Renza! Eat hair!

3. Hertzko Self-cleaning Slicker Brush

Hertzko Self-cleaning Slicker Brush review
This one looks more like a brush. Maybe mommy can brush her own bushy hair with it.

Not as popular as the DakPets and Furminator, but it has more bristles and can hold more hair before you have to clean it.

Cleaning is easy too. Just press the button and there goes the hair. The Hertzko gets high ratings and lots of pet parents love the product.

Here's the breakdown!

Hertzko Features:
  • Self-cleaning slicker pet brush that eliminates tangles, knots, dander, and trapped dirt 
  • For long, medium, short, thick, wiry, or curly hair 
  • Has a comfort-grip and anti-slip handle, which prevents hand and wrist strain 
  • The bristles are fine bent wires designed to penetrate deep into the coat.
  • Works great on dogs and cats of all sizes and hair types! 
  • Comfortable, strong, and durable 
  • 100% Money Back No Question Asked Guarantee! 
  • Get rid of dead and knotted hair 
  • It grooms the undercoat well without scratching your pet's skin
  • Too big for small dogs like puppies 
  • Bristles may bend, but not always
The Hertko bristle brush for dogs is a good option to consider because it's sturdy, comfy and will give mommy's hair a good brushing. I mean Buffy's hair.

We've already established I'm not getting brushed and working hard on sharpening my teeth in case of attempted brushing. Although...I'm still open to being bribed with treats. Yum Yums!

Best Brush for Heavy Shedding Dog Review

That's it! There you go my fluffy pack. I'm sure some or all of these deshedding tools will help you with your pet hair problem.

Mommy threatened to shave me and renaming me Fluffless! The nerve. It was actually Buffy's idea. Double nerve!

Luckily she loves my fluff and is not too eager to get rid of it. Guess I'll be keeping my name and my fluff.

I'll see you soon my fluffies. Buffy is coughing up a furball again. Let me go tell mommy that he ate my hair. Geez, Buff! Stop eating everything!
