Thumbs up Zoom Groom!

I've heard about Zoom groom on a bullies forum i visit once in a while, and i went out to find one for Georges. Man, that thing really works well on my lil EB. You should have seen that mount of fur we got off him! and a lil plus, he really liked it!

I was almost sold till I saw the part about it working best on long-haired dogs if they're wet! Then I pictured the Pack wet... Setters hate water!

I'm glad that Georges and Duffy like theirs, though! I'm a little tempted to get one for me...a little massage with my morning grooming! I think I could get used to that!

It looks cool and it's so CHEAP! If it doesn't work, you haven't lost much.

I was thinking, "that sounds interesting" until I saw the link. It looked familiar until I remembered seeing it at the bottom of one of the toy boxes . Good place for it LP . I'm going to have to dig it out, I can't remember if we even tried it .

Love it, bought both the dog and cat one. Only tried out the dog one so far though. Seems the brushed loose hairs just come off and don't stick to the brush, is that everyone else experiences? Just makes cleaning up a little messier, but luckily for me they aren't my own dogs!

The doggies also seem to like chewing on it too.

Going to have to try the kitty one on Chester and Jerry. Will write an in depth report after.

Scuba I've found with Duffy most of her fur will stick in the brush, but some does land on my carpet and I've found the brush is great for removing fur out of "low pile high traffic" carpet better than clogging the vaccum

So far so good with limited use. Only thing I noticed was that the fur/hair does not stick to the brush well and kinds of make a mess to clean up with the bits drifting here and there. But its nothing major that a broom or good vacuum can't take care of.

Will do a long term review when they have both been used more.

When I get a dog I want a zoom groom, It works awesome and I bet it feels great, they should make them for massages! haha The hair does tend to not stick on the brush but its best to use outside or in a no carpeted room and then sweep/vacuum after. They are also washable but probably don't hold up well to chewing.

I've got one of these. Oksana loooooooooves it. She's really the only one who will sit still to be brushed, and I think she really likes the massaging affect.

Scuba your right it is a bit messy but I do it outdoors and spread it all over the grass. It keeps critters out of the yard! it does work!

Winston really likes the massaging of it and it takes out an incredible amount of hair! I have to say its one of the best things I have ever bought for him! I tried it on the cats but they were more interested in smelling it than anything??

Gotta so thumbs up for this product!
