Amazing Montana Made Grooming Tool!
Meet Chubbs! His real name is Hershey, but Hershey loves food and therefore he's earned an unflattering nickname. He's a great dog. This spring/summer he's really been trying to shed his winter fur. We find Hershey hair "tumbleweeds" rolling around the floor. It gets pretty bad.
A while back I had the chance to pick up this grooming device, made by a company right here in Billings called "SleekEZ". Their shop is in Lockwood. Here's a closer pic of the grooming device:
It has what looks like a hacksaw blade, firmly attached to a well contoured wooden handle. When I first got it I was a little skeptical. How could something with tiny little "brushes" work very well, I thought. It works AMAZING. I'm not kidding. 10 - 15 minutes on Chubbs and I had a HUGE pile of winter coat hair in the yard. The birds will thank me for the awesome nest material.
Anyway, this is not a paid endorsement, just a recommendation from one dog lover to another. Supposedly they work just as well on longer-haired dogs. They were originally made for horses. I think they retail for under $20. Check out their website to find out more or to see where you can get one for yourself.
