Let the shedding begin! Do you use a Furminator?

We have had two straight days of sun and 60 degree temps, and Bogie Carter has decided to shed BIG TIME today. When I brushed him this morning the hair and soft furry undercoat were flying everywhere. I use a Zoom Groom and a shedding blade that do a pretty good job. I just wondered if anyone here used the Furminator, and if it is worth the $$$. What do you guys use when the fur flies? Thanks!! Connie

I broke down yesterday and bought a "furminator" at Pet Smart. I'm impressed with it and it will be great to carry in the RV and to do inside grooming here at home when its rainy etc. It did a great job, and I was amazed at how much loose hair came off Bogie. I had just groomed him the day before with the shedding blade and Zoom Groom. It was nice not to have flying fur in the house, that usually happens with the shedding blade. I just easily pulled it off the blade and stuck it in the waste can. I had a can full when I was done and a very handsome dog. Thanks for everyones imput.!!!!

We have used a furminator on both bassets and even the cat loves it. I usually put the hair in the yard and the birds use it for their nests. But it does work, better than anything else we have used.
