Review: The Dyson Groom

February 12th, 2013 posted by Amanda Formaro

I’ve been a devout Dyson owner for about 5 years and a dog owner for much, much longer. When I heard that Dyson developed a cool new tool to help groom your dog and cut down on shedding, I was all over it. First reaction after trying it out? If you have a dog, you need one of these! I have two dogs, a German Shepherd and a Black Labrador. They both shed and it doesn’t matter what season it is. I’ve used quite a few different grooming brushes and tools, several with success, but they all come with the hazard of fly away hairs. You know, the kind that get in your mouth, on your clothes, and all over the room. The beautiful thing about the Dyson Groom is that your vacuum is on while you are brushing, so it’s collecting all the little loose hairs that usually end up where they aren’t supposed to. Then when you release the button, all the hair that collected on the brush is immediately sucked off the bristles and into the vacuum cleaner! The Dyson Groom snaps onto the hose of your Dyson vacuum and has a comfortable hand grip. You can control the length of the bristles by how much pressure you exert onto the tool’s trigger. Because the bristles retract unless the trigger is pressed, storing is easy and there’s no chance for the bristles to become damaged or bent. I am now using this tool about once a month on my German Shepherd and we are working on getting the Lab to adjust to it as she was an abused rescue and is a little unsure about everything right now. Below is a short video of the tool in use on my German Shepherd, Angel. This was the first time I had used the tool, she stands a lot quieter now that’s she’s used to the vacuum being on while she’s being brushed. Keep in mind, Angel was a little surprised as this was literally the first time that I used this groomer on her.

Benefits of The Dyson Groom include:

  • stainless steel bristles and only removesloose hair and dead skin from the dog
  • full suction is transferred to capture hair hygienically in the vacuum
  • keeps the dog’s coat shiny and there is no need to clean the floor after use
  • benefits allergy sufferers by capturing and retaining allergens spreads around the home

The Dyson Groom retails for $69.99 and fits most Dyson vacuum cleaners. The Dyson Groom is suitable for for medium and long haired dogs. To read more or to watch the Dyson Groom in action visit their website .
