This tool works great. It helps so much with all the hair my dogs have. I have a Yorkshire Terrier and Shih-Tzu. Even though I always take them for hair cuts their hair grows so fast and tends to mat very easily. I first take a soft brush and brush them in case there are any knots on their body. I then take the FurBuddy and go gently across their coat. It takes out so much excess hair it works !! I use it a few times a week to maintain their coat so it looks nice and keeps it from getting knotty.
The handle is nice and soft and easy to hold. When not in use it has a protective plastic cover to cover the deShedding comb. I received this product complimentary in exchange for my unbiased opinion and review.
