Best Dog Hair Cleaner Tools of 2017
Fellow dog owners know how much dedication and effort it takes to keep their home clean and free of dog hair. Over time, cleaning becomes less of a chore and instead starts being a habit.
Depending on what you’re facing, with your own k9, there are easy ways of keeping your home doggie hair free. They make life much easier especially if you often play with indoor toys like iFetch or the PetSafe which afterwards results in fur spread all over your place. Manufacturers of cleaning tools for pet owners though about pretty much anything so now there is a good choice of very useful cleaners. Take for example the Dyson DC65 Animal Vacuum and FURminator that allow easier cleanup with less hassle and stress.
Our top list consists of some of the best models for the 2017 so you will surely have the way to compare and decide which one to go for.
This is first and foremost – this is a highly efficient grooming tool. With a patented tech, it can reduce shedding with almost 90 percent efficiency. It is designed to be the solution at the root of the cause of preventing the spread of fallen k9 hairs. By using it to go through your pet’s coat you will essentially reduce and in some case completely prevent it from leaving excess fur around your home.
The construction of this tool is completely tuned for performance and comfort. The stainless-steel edge efficiently moves under the dog coat and gently picks up and holds any loose hairs until you dispose of them by pressing a release button. There won’t be any mess when you are using it. It is available for every dog breed and you can choose between a model for long hair or short hair doggies. When it comes to dimensions it’s available in five of them, each with a different colour – extra small, small, medium, large and giant size. This pretty much covers all k9 breeds.
Using the FURminator is a good experience as it is gentle to the pet since it doesn’t pull hairs and only removes the loose or broken ones. The ergonomic handle fits comfortably in the hand and due to the textured surface provides a secure grip. The whole tool features round edges that are safe and prevent any possibility of injury in case your pet decides to move around.
