Belle has very sensitive skin, so I’ve been looking for grooming tools that are more gentle. I love our FURminator, but I have to be very gentle when I use it.
Despite it’s very odd (and long) name, this grooming glove sounded like a good choice. It isn’t expensive, so I purchased one to try it out.
- Moves around a lot
- Size of glove is too big
- Doesn’t pick up a lot of dog hair
- Does not remove hair from furniture
- Can only be used on the right hand
- Doesn’t seem to keep the hair on the glove, rather it falls to the ground
- Not expensive
- Very gentle
- Can be hand washed
One size fits all is never what it says. There is a velcro strap at the base to adjust and make it stay on your hand. This just doesn’t work for me. This glove is way to big on my hand, making me pinch it between my fingers from the inside to try and keep it in place when I use it. As a result, it’s just too difficult to use.
While it does brush some of the loose hair off of the dogs, it doesn’t do a very good job. With the FURminator, it takes maybe 6-8 minutes to get a good amount of dog hair off of the dogs. Perhaps I don’t have the patience for the amount of time this grooming glove would take to remove loose hair. However, I suspect the short rubber tips on the glove just don’t do the job.
Our furniture is made of a woven material, which allows dog hair to really get in the material. This glove did nothing to remove the hair from the couch and chairs. However, I must note that even a vacuum doesn’t get the hair off of the couch.
Perhaps it works better for different breeds of dogs, but for our two dogs, it doesn’t work very well.
