2012 Gift Guide: Vacuum Accessory by FURminator

With the holiday season nearly here, many of us are preparing our homes, ourselves and our pets for holiday visitors and events. For pet parents, that preparation can mean extra grooming for our fur-buddies to make them extra presentable when the holiday company arrives.

If cold weather means grooming your dog indoors, you’ll face another cleaning job once the grooming is over: controlling and disposing of the loose hair and fur. To make the job easier, FURminator┬« offers its new Vacuum Accessory tool which sucks up loose hair at the source, saving much of the cleanup time.

The FURminator Vacuum Accessory is designed to pair the newest models of the FURminator deshedding tool with a household vacuum cleaner to catch loose hair and debris before it has a chance to settle on floor or furniture.

Hooking up the Vacuum Accessory is a snap. Just insert the handle of your FURminator deshedder into the specially-sized slot and lock it into place with the included Velcro strap. Then, attach the Vacuum Accessory to your vacuum cleaner hose and you’re ready for Fido’s grooming session.

The Vacuum Accessory comes with two removable heads to match the deshedding tool’s size and two hose adapters to fit all US vacuum cleaner brands.

Price: $20.99 from the FURminator website; (currently $17.84 on Amazon.com and PetSmart.com).
