Everyone wants to look their best for the holidays. We also want our homes and our fur babies to look their best. So this year, control your pets shedding with The Coat Hook™. This little pet comb does big work on clearing loose hair from your pets “guard coat.”
Most dogs have three types of fur: Undercoat, guard hair and whiskers. The undercoat lies closest to the dog’s skin and grows in clusters from a single follicle. The undercoat has a soft, downy appearance and works to protect the skin from cold weather. Cats also have different layers of fur, or hair. The “guard hairs” on a cat are the longer, stiffer hairs that extend out past the “base coat” (awn hairs). These are the hairs that usually determine the basic color of the cat. Guard hairs help in retarding water to keep a cat dry. The “undercoat” or down, is the softer, fluffier hair that provides warmth. This is the hair that tends to mat if a cat is not groomed regularly. This where The Coat Hook™ comes in!
The long tines on The Coat Hook™ comb reach through the outer “guard coat,” and the patented Microhooks grab and gently remove the shedding, downy undercoat of fur, without cutting your pets guard coat. It also helps prevent hair balls. My fur baby has an odd coat. Probably because she’s a mix of SEVEN breeds of dogs. (We love our ‘mutter’ though!) Josie’s fur is thickest between her shoulder blades and down her spine. This is where she sheds from the most.
The Coat Hook™ is perfect for matted or tangled fur! Simply use the detangler side of The Coat Hook™ (the side with the logo), lay it on the fur at a low angle, and pull it through the mats, increasing the steepness of the handle’s angle as you go. To deshed, the most effective way to use The Coat Hook™ is to hold it with the logo facing UP, and pull it through your pet’s hair, much like you would pull a rake in the grass.

I was really impressed with how well The Coat Hook™ worked to pull shedding hair from my fur baby. You can use it on your dog, your cat, or you can even use it on rabbits! The Coat Hook™ retails for $19.95 and you can get yours here. You can also find The Coat Hook™ on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.
