Pet hair can be a nightmare for pet owners with breeds that shed fur heavily. This is particularly true for those whose dogs have thick undercoats that go through a blow out. Usually, these owners have to go through two strenuous tasks of grooming and vacuuming. All the dead hair needs to be brushed out, then all that hair needs to be collected. The great news for tired owners is that Dyson have come up with a vacuum-assisted grooming tool that should make life a lot easier.
So What is the Dyson Groom and How Does it Actually Work?
The Dyson Groom is an attachment that fits onto the hose of a Dyson vacuum to provide a new approach to the collection of pet hair. Rather than brush out pet hair and dander to the floor, and hope that the pet vacuum then picks it up. This attachment brushes out the dead hair and the hair is sucked straight into the vacuum with a pull on the trigger. The trigger motion opens the suction port and deals with hair with relative ease. These hairs are trapped on a series of slicker bristles that are positioned at the optimal 5 degree angle. Once the hair is in the vacuum, the clean up process is straight forward. Dyson have designed this system so that it should attach to most Dyson models with the right connector.
There are many buyers that are very impressed with the performance of this device and it is clear that it can be a helpful aid.
The main selling point with this product for most users is the way that it cuts down on time and effort. Grooming and vacuuming were once too separate tasks with very separate tools. This combination means that it is now a much more simple process that cuts out a lot of the hassle of cleaning up after pets. The brush is tough enough to trap the dead hear of medium and long coats with ease and the suction means that it is not just pet hair that is trapped. The streamlined process means that hair, dander, skin cells and maybe even flea eggs can be lifted and dealt with in an effective manner. This is great news for all those that struggle with allergies. There are some issues with smaller dogs because of the size and function of the tool, but it seems to work well on many coat types.
The big question for many owners is not what the human buyers thing of this device, but what the dogs think.
It is important to remember that when you are buying grooming tools for dogs, you are buying for more than one individual. It is great if this device has a good performance and a nice user-friendly design, but it is no good if the dogs hate it. The specification talks about the benefits here, highlighted the fact that it removes the pet hair and dead skin cells to help to improve the condition of the coat. This is great in the long-term. In the short-term, there are many dogs that are not happy to have this devices used on them. This shouldn’t be much a surprise because it is such a strange looking device and quite intimidating when attached to a vacuum hose. The problem is made even worse if the animal is already afraid of the vacuum.
In the end, this Dyson Pet Groom can still prove to be a great help for pet owners in many circumstances.
It is clear that there are some pets that will not get along with a product like this because of the way that it is used. However, the idea of combining a grooming tool and vacuum is seen as a work of genius by many users because of the impact it has on the grooming and cleaning process. If you are the owner of big, calm dogs, especially those prone to blow outs, this could be a great tool to add to the arsenal.
