You may not have seen or heard about the Dyson Dog Grooming Brush in the U.S. I have only found it on a Japanese website, but surely it will come this way. Of course you need to attach
the Grooming Brush to a Dyson bagless vacuum cleaner, and of course there's a
one especially meant to pick up pet hair. The trick, however, will be to hunt your dog down when you take out your vacuum so he will let you brush his fur with a vacuum cleaner.
But the Dyson brochure gives you step-by-step training tips that will introduce him to the Grooming Brush without fear of being sucked up. The caption is mine, not Dyson's.
First you give him cookies for coming within a few feet of the vacuum cleaner. And then, you move his food bowl to the vacuum, until he eats his dinner next to it, and by then you have him thinking that the vacuum is actually dropping the kibble into his bowl.
Now here's what's special about the Dyson Dog Grooming Brush.
First, the comb is retractable, so when not in use, there are no pointed objects that can puncture you or your dog.
When you are ready to use the brush, you just push down a lever on the handle that will release the brush. This is accomplished easily with your thumb or forefinger.
The bristles are bent to draw loose fur from the outer coat and undercoat as well as dead skin into them without them flying around the room.
The Grooming Brush is attached to a vacuum cleaner so the hair can be drawn into the canister as it is brushed from the dog.
The following video shows how the Dyson Dog Grooming Brush works on a dog that has clearly found Nirvana.
The Dyson Vacuum Grooming Brush is for dogs with medium to long hair.

That's the buzz for today!
