8 Genius Dog Shedding Products That Will Make Your Home Cleaner
From hair remover mitts to special brooms, these products will tackle all of your dog shedding needs.
Any non-hypoallergenic dog owner knows that the dog shedding struggle is all too real. But you don't have to be beholden to vacuuming non-stop or going through lint roller after lint roller to keep your home fur free. There are many genius products out there that can help you manage your dog's shedding. Read on to find eight products that fight dog shedding that other pet owners on Amazon swear by.
The Shed Defender
The Shed Defender went viral in 2019 because it promised to not only contain your dog's shedding but also curb their anxiety, protect them from ticks, and potentially replace the "cone of shame" by preventing them from scratching certain spots on their body. (And it's perfect for those who love to dress their dogs up, too.)
As one Amazon customer wrote, "My dog didn't like me very much when I put it on and she stared at me with a look of sadness, hatred, and distain while wearing the hot pink jumpsuit, but it prevented her fur from getting all over the house." The conclusion? "Good if you can handle dog's look of sadness and disdain."
If it sounds like it's an '80s action movie and looks like it belongs next to the power drills at Home Depot, it's got to be good, right? As a corgi mom, I have a Furminator myself, and it really does make it easier to scrape off excess hair and remove it from the stainless steel blade than a regular brush.
"This thing is ridiculous. You may think you've brushed the hair off your dog, but oh no, my friend, you haven't," one Amazon user wrote. "Let's get one thing clear, your dog has too much hair, and the Furminator was sent by aliens in the future to help you fix that."
The Delomo Pet Grooming Glove
What could be better than mittens covered in tiny silicone tips so that you can de-shed your dog while petting them? Welcome to the Delomo grooming glove! My dog only diffidently tolerates the Furminator, but he loves this glove. He doesn't seem to recognize the difference between it and back scratches. Bamboozled!
Apparently, it even works on cats! "The first time we used it on our cats they weren't sure about that 'big hand' coming after them, but it only took once before they started lining up and begging to be groomed," one Amazon user wrote. "Within a couple of days the 'tumbleweeds' had all but disappeared, and even the lint tray in our dryer was cleaner after each load."
The Evriholder FURemover Broom
A regular broom is fine for hardwood floors, but it's no match for those fine strands of hair that have embedded in your rug. And if your dog, like mine, lives in mortal fear of the Roomba, a broom with rubber bristles can be your new best friend.
"This broom is bananas!" one Amazon user wrote. "I'm buying another broom immediately for the same reasons I hyperventilate with less than seven rolls of toilet paper in the house."
The ChomChom Roller
Regular lint rollers work fine for clothes, but if you let your dog sleep in the same bed as you, they're no match for what Fido leaves behind. The ChomChom Pet Hair Remover is made of eco-friendly plastic and conveniently gathers all the fur into a compartment.
"After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me," one Amazon user wrote. "It's absolutely amazing."
The Fur-Zoff Pet Hair Remover
Don't let the old-school packaging fool you. People swear by this pumice-stone-like tool that pushes all the excess hair into a ball. It seems like the Fur-Zoff Pet Hair Remover is especially useful for car floors if your dog likes to go for joyrides.
"Absolutely incredible," one Amazon user wrote. "I have two dogs, one of which sheds quite a bit. We like to go hiking so they both ride in the back seat of my truck. Over time, hair accumulated in the carpet and no matter what I tried. I could not get it out. This item, in one swipe will clear the pet hair from your automotive carpet."
The Honest Outfitters Dog Seat Cover
Why spend time scraping the fur off of your car seat when you can avoid it altogether with the Honest Outfitters Dog Seat Cover? The waterproof material is great if your dog just can't resist sliding down muddy hills, and the quilted diamond-pattern design will make him look like a lapdog of luxury.
"I was pleasantly surprised by this," one Amazon user wrote. "It was relatively easy to install, had innovative covered openings for the seat belts, and covered a generous portion of the back seat area. If nothing else, it protects from dust while not in use and has a nice texture, soft to sit on."
The Bodhi Dog Bath Brush
If you want to get all the de-shedding out of the way while giving your dog a bath, everyone seems to love the Bodhi Dog Bath brush, which has soft rubber tips that gently scrub away not only excess hair but also dirt and dead skin. One Amazon user wrote that her dog seemed to not even realize it was bath time: "She thought she was in a pet spa." Heckin' bamboozled again!
