To follow up on my earlier effusions about the Zoom Groom, I thought I would try to provide some scientific backing for my enthusiasm by subjecting the Zoom Groom to a rigorous side-by-side comparison with the Furminator, that established leader in the dog-hair removal world.
[Warning, this is far from my most interesting post.]
There's no question that the Furminator is amazing at removing large quantities of dog hair. The problem is that the Furminator is a row of hard, sharp metal teeth that is pretty harsh for most dogs.
Can we hope to achieve anywhere near the Furminator's fur-removing capacity with the far gentler, dog-friendlier Zoom Groom?
To find out, I enlisted Lamar, whose thick white undercoat blankets my house in fluff every few days if I don't stay on top of things. Lamar also dislikes our Furminator sessions with a passion.
On Lamar's right side, I brushed with the Furminator for 2 minutes. On Lamar's left side; I used the Zoom Groom for exactly 2 minutes.
The results? Clearly, the Furminator is superior in fur-removal power.
[Good God, did she really just post a picture of two piles of dog hair?]
At the same time, however, Lamar reported that the Zoom Groom was a far more pleasurable grooming experience than having his sensitive skin raked over by the unforgiving Furminator.
