Edison does not like it but he puts up with it, complete with annoyed sigh. He does try to get away when I'm brushing but I can calculate his moves to prevent such and once its over, he quickly gets up, shakes himself off and makes a dash to escape!

I love how these dogs have such strong feelings about brushing -- especially Shadow!

PC LOVES the furminator! He sticks his tiny little butt up in the air so that I can brush it! I get so much hair out of him, you'd think I had 43 dogs!

My rotty/shepard mix loves it, she loves any attention she can get. My Husky hates it no matter what I use. My rotty/lab/chow mix is indifferent to brushing.

Willie's indifferent. He'll tolerate a hound glove, but doesn't particularly seem to dig it one way or another, not like just plain old petting and scratching. I'd probably get the Furminator if it weren't so darned expensive. For a short-haired, single-coated, low-maintenance (grooming-wise, anyway) hound, it hardly seems worth the cost. Although he is a constant shedder.

I had a malamute growing up who, during coat-blowing seasons, loved to be brushed with my pony's currycomb. Bales and bales of white, cottony undercoat would come out, and birds would build nests out of it.

Artie's coat sounds just like Willie's coat, but the Furminator is the only brush/comb that Artie tolerates, to the point that he loves his spa day on the guest bed.

Have you looked on Amazon? That's where I got mine and it wasn't expensive (at least not at the time) and probably included free shipping. I got the medium-sized one.

I use the Furminator on my Lab/Shepherd and he will tolerate a fast brush but that is all.

My sheltie I use 3 brushes on her and she will stand there for hours. She wont lay down or sleep but she will stand there like she is in a trance and loving it.
