We are a three dog household, a Rott mix and two Siberian Huskies, I also work in an animal clinic as a vet tech. Let me just say that I can see this tool saving out house. One of our huskies is still blowing her coat and we are well into summer, I filled two canisters on just her and she didn't even look that bad to begin with. She's the dog that will leave little tufts of hair around the house, the other two are just stray hairs. Bella hates being groomed and I've been brushing her inside because she howls and carries on (I don't know what the neighbors must think I'm doing to her). She sat pretty quit when I tried the groom tool on her, like she almost enjoyed it. My other husky is longer, more fine hair. He laid down and was pretty content with it. I think the Rott mix might have to grow her hair out a bit more for it to work on her (she was shaved down the beginning of summer). It would be nice if Dyson came out with a replacement head though, and maybe other sized brush attachments for different coats? The bristles are sharp like any slicker brush, so you have to be careful not to dig into the skin. This is a fun tool and will get loads of use in our house. I just wish it hadn't taken me so long to discover it existed!
Given, our dog HATES being groomed, but we are training him to like it and associating it with treats. It really helps to lower the amount of hair we are finding around the house, and we have a husky. Totally recommend this product Target, as the shipping was really quick.
