New Dyson Pet Grooming Kit May Be Just What You’re Looking For

If you’re the pet parent of an excessive shedder, you’re fully aware of how time-consuming it can be dealing with the constant fur flying. For those of you who are hyper-vigilant, you likely own a number of tools to combat the follicle fallout covering every square inch of your home. Lint rollers? Check! Special dryer sheets? Check! Swiffer wands? Check! Self-navigating Roomba iRobot? Double check! While they’re all relatively effective, wouldn’t it be nice if you could negate the majority of the work?

Dyson Vacuum Cleaners

According to Dyson, you can, with their dynamic pet grooming kit. It consists of a group of three attachments to be used with one of their compatible vacuum cleaners, which you can find here. Who knows, you may already have one. If not, Dyson are not cheap. They are, however, known for being one of the best makes on the market today in the world of debris. Knowing that (and depending on your dog breed), it might be worth the investment.

Mess-Free Grooming for Medium to Long-Haired Dogs

So, how much bang for your buck do you get with the Dyson dog grooming kit? For starters, the tools consist of an attachable brush with angled bristles that suck up the loose hairs not caught firmly in the teeth of the device, a hose extender for ease of use with certain models, and a converter for use with one of their cordless vacuums. It’s worth mentioning that Dyson vacuums are engineered to be quieter than other vacuum cleaners, so it’s not as likely to freak your pet out.

The brush itself is constructed with bristles bent at an angle to allow for deep grooming that your pet may dig. If you’ve ever used a grooming mitt, you’ll totally get the Nirvana they experience. In addition to removing hairs quickly and efficiently, there’s a retraction feature for the bristles so the brush can suck up all the excess hairs into the unit. This way, you’re not digging them out after the fact. Dyson also points out that the tool removes allergens as you go, sucking up dead skin cells with every brush stroke. Good to know for anyone prone to pet allergies.

Further info on the brush includes the 364 bristles are angled at 35° and flex to an upright position as you’re brushing, so they penetrate Fido’s coat to grab those loose hairs. For extra convenience, you can also adjust the bristle length and switch up between grooming mode, self-cleaning, and self-store modes through a single thumb control conveniently placed on the device.

Dog Breeds Prone to Shedding

Designed with medium- to long-haired dogs in mind, it’s quite possible only larger breeds who are chill will tolerate the use of it. If you’ve got a Great Pyrenees, Alaskan Malamute, German Shepherd, Siberian Husky, Labrador retriever, Akita, Chow Chow, golden retriever, Saint Bernard, Newfoundland, or any other large, shaggy beast known for excessive shedding, this might well be the way to go.
