Hello everyone, I know I haven’t posted in a while!
I’ve been busy renovating my shop (www.FurryPawsPEI.com).
I’m also going to be moving my blog to Blogspot, the link for that is:
I look forward to seeing you on my new blog!
Today I will be reviewing the Furminator for medium long-hair dogs.
First and foremost, I will put in the description of the tool, written by the company itself. to give you an idea of what this product does, and how it works:
For long hair dogs 21-50 lbs
2.65” deShedding edge designed for coats longer than 2 inches
Reduces shedding up to 90%
Stainless steel deShedding edge reaches deep beneath your dog’s long topcoat to gently remove undercoat and loose hair
Used and recommended by veterinarians and professional groomers
FURejector® button cleans and removes loose hair from the tool with ease
Guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush, rake or comb
Designed by a groomer for professional results
Now that we have that out of the way, I will tell you how I feel about the product.
I purchased this brush for my dog, who is a Border Collie x Flat Coated Retriever, who had a very thick undercoat.
When I saw the brush, I liked the fact that it was pleasing to the eye, and especially liked the the rubber grip handle. That made it very easy for me to hold on to, since I have very small hands.
My dog doesn’t enjoy being groomed, but he was relaxed and calm when I used the Furminator on him. I found the design resulted in less pulling, and removed only the undercoat.
One of my favorite features is the “Furejector” button. This feature makes the clean up a lot easier. The brush collects the hair, and it pushes it off once there’s enough attached to it with a click of a button (located on the top of the brush). Because of this, I was able to remove each bundle of hair directly into the garbage can, instead of having to sweep and vacuum after the grooming.
I found the blades of the brush to be rather sharp, and required a light hand when going down his legs, as his hair is slightly shorter there.
The brush is on the pricey side, but the product is well worth it. The amount of hair it takes out is incredible, and the fact that it can leave the glossy top coat is definitely a plus.
Overall, I give this product a 4.5 out of 5, and I definitely recommend it to anybody who owns a double coated dog (or cat!)
I stumbled across this company while waiting for my dog during a vet appointment.
When I saw the ad, I became very interested in the product and company. As soon as I got home, I went straight to my computer, and looked the company up on Google.
I did a bit of reading, and also found some reviews. The reviews were great, the company sounded amazing, and best of all: the products looked perfect!
Here is an example of what this company does:
When you go to order a Cuddle Clone, you enter your pooches basic information (breed, weight) and attach a clear head shot, left/right side, tail, back, and chest.
Once you’ve done that, you pick left and right ears (up, half, or floppy), eye colour, and tail (up, half, down, or docked).
Once you have completed that, you have the option of entering any distinguishing characteristics your dog (or kitty!) may have.
When all of that is done, you have the option to add a customized collar to your Cuddle Clone, or your actual pet! After that, you review what you’ve entered and order your soon-to-be Cuddle Clone!
Now that I have explained the process, I’ll tell you what I think of the company and their products:
I think this product is absolutely incredible. The idea of being able to “clone” your past or present dog (or cat!) into a cuddly teddy bear you can have for a lifetime.
I love that their website allows you to see other peoples Cuddle Clones, giving you an idea of how great they really are. They post photos of the actual pet, and the Cuddle Clone, and sometimes it’s hard to even tell them apart!
Cuddle Clones also offers a number of other products as well. They offer Custom Collars, which come in 5 different colours, and you can add charms as well.
They also offer Customs T-Shirts that come in two colours, as well as Hoodies, both for your pup (or kitty)!
Another wonderful product this company has is Clone Earrings, and Clone Necklaces. These wonderful little pieces are made out of sandstone, and custom made to look exactly like your pet!
Last, but certainly not least, they offer Clone Figurines, and Clone Ornaments! These two products are also made of sandstone, and made to look like your pet!
Another great thing this company does is donate a portion of each Cuddle Clone sale to pet-related causes.

I’ve noticed over the years that a lot of people don’t realize obesity in dogs when they see it, or the difference between conditioning and starving.
I’ve put together a couple of photos as an example of overweight, emaciated, and conditioned dogs.
*I will not tolerate people saying the conditioned dogs are starving, and the overweight dog are “fine”. I will also not tolerate people saying these are fighting dogs, because they are conditioned. I am also aware that these photos are not the best quality, but they will work for educational purposes.
In this picture, we see the difference between working and show bred dogs. Most people don’t realize what the real breed (working) is supposed to look like.
