I am a Golden dog and have 2 coats that protect me all season.
In Winter, my undercoat grows to protect me from the cold weather.
During warm months, my undercoat sheds because I no longer need it.
I know many pet owners do not enjoy shedding season but it is part of pet ownership. That is why regular brushing is important and having a good brush and/or comb is a must. Also, using an undercoat rake/ de-shedding tool helps reduce shedding.
We use a prominent brand undercoat rake/de-shedding tool. It works but with the little sharp pointy teeth there are times it hurts. I make a Golden Lion Face for my mom to stop the de-shedding.
So I am Golden delight and thrilled to try a new de-shedding tool, Shed Monster. The Shed Monster is a product from As Seen On TV known for there infomercial products that work and are reasonably priced.
On the package it says …
Reduces Shedding up to 90%
Smooth Edges Protect Skin! Wont Irritate the Skin
The design is a smaller, lighter and not as wide compared to the one we currently own. The handle has a yellow rubber grip. Most importantly the stainless steel blunt teeth are curved. My mom ran her fingers all over it and never got hurt. It sure made her wonder with the curved blunt teeth, how the Shed Monster would work?
Yes, the Shed Monster did a wonderful job. It got my undercoat without hurting me. In minutes lots of Golden Fur accumulated both on the ground and in the tool. It was very easy to remove the fur in the tool.
Do I look different?
Getting brushed/de-shed actually felt good. I feel lighter.
It means that I can I have some tasty treats …
I Love the Shed Monster that we’ve been taking it to our weekend shows. I love when i get groomed around my ear.
Lots of Golden Thanks to Shed Monster
All in all, the Shed Monster is a great de-shedding tool especially for a long double coated Golden Retriever dog like me .
Absolutely, LOVE the curved blunt teeth.
It provided a smooth deep contact against my skin/coat
and most importantly it does not hurt.
I give the Shed Monster 4 Golden Paws Up.

Hey there Sugar,
What an interesting looking alternative to our own 'rake' – a simple black plastic one. Yours looks like it did the job superbly and yes, we did notice a shinier Sugar 🙂
I wonder if one can get the Shed Monster 4 in South Africa? I will certainly look out for it.

Know what you mean about shedding… shedding… shedding… The boys go to the "day spa" every few weeks, so I thankfully don't have too much to do in between. I like the idea of rounder teeth, though, but must admit being a bit surprised you got as much fluff as you did with it!
You do look really happy when they are grooming around your ears! Enjoy it!

Daisy is shedding undercoat, we could use that. It looks like it makes you smile, that is nice.

Wow, look at that big pile of Sugar fur! Looks like that monster does the trick. Mom uses a Furminator on me and it works great too. Happy Saturday!
Grr and Woof,
Boy, could Trixie use that!!
you are truly blessed to have a mommy who removes all that hair. Baby Girl does not have as much as you do, she is part ridgeback and lab, and she does have two coats for cold and hot, but not nearly as much as you do
Benny and Lily says
we already have that monster

This sounds wonderful! We use a brush on Koda but find that it is hard to clean out.
Tessa the Maltese says
Wow Sugar that is lots of hairs! I don't need that kinda brush cause I don't have an undercoat and hardly shed.
But it sure is great for those pups that do!
You always have such a pretty smile even when you is gettin brushed!

Christie, Describe Happy says
That's a great big pile of fur.. tool must work wonders!! We have a rubber 'brush' (I think it's meant to scrub during bathtime), but after a lot of tries this is the only brush Katie will hold still for. And rafflecopter… why can't I seem to find it?
Bailey Be Good! says
Oh boy, could I use THIS! Mommy vacuums once a day, 'cause none of the brushes work to take out all my loose fur. 🙂
Woofs & hugs, <3
