Spring is here and shedding is in full "bloom". Both of my dogs are shedders with heavy undercoats. The best tool I have found to help with removing a lot of the undercoat at one time is the Furminator. I seriously don't know how I have much of a dog left after a session with this thing because it takes off SO much fur. It looks like and entire dog's worth of fur once you're done, LOL. Of course, it won't stop shedding, but it does help to get as much off at one time in one place as you can!
