If you happen to had visited stackt at Bathurst and Entrance this previous summer season you may need seen Dyson taking up the general public canine park. They provided pet house owners the chance to take a look at the most recent within the line of vacuums and different attachments. Once we had heard that they have been launching the Dyson Pet Grooming Package our ears have been perked. Something that may assist us maintain shedded fur below management is music to any dog-loving proprietor.
Searching for methods to attenuate even the canine’s hair from even hitting the ground is a bonus. No secret that our corgi is a continuing shedder however it’s not simply his copious quantity of free hairs (we name it corgi glitter) on the arduous wooden, tiles and carpets that has us vacuuming each day. Once we realized extra about pet dander and microscopic pores and skin flakes, and mud mites across the house it compelled us to search out out what we will do extra to maintain issues below management.
In a latest Dyson International Mud Examine on pet house owners and their cleansing habits it shocked us to study that Canadians are literally NOT the cleanest on this class. And it’s not nearly seeing free hairs all over the place. There’s lots we can’t see with our eyes. The examine additionally revealed that 53% of canine house owners and 68% of cat house owners in Canada permit their furry relations sleep of their mattress. BUT solely 38% of Canadian pet house owners are conscious that mud mite feces can reside on their pets.
Then comes the brushing. We now have brushed Harley with a pet brush however it didn’t happen to me that the particles from the motion can also take the dander and mite feces airborne. Whereas microscopic it’s straightforward to miss and may ship extra allergens into our areas.
The Dyson Pet Grooming Package (now appropriate with Dyson’s cordless vacuum vary) arrived lately in Canada simply in time for the vacation season and we had an opportunity to check it out.
What’s contained in the field?
It’s a reasonably straight ahead package. It comes with the de-shedding software which has 364 bristles angled at 35 levels and flexes as your brush your pet. It additionally comes with an extension hose attachment and adapter. The software with extension hose and adapter attaches to your present Dyson vacuum (an entire record of appropriate vacuums can be found on their website). The package is on the market for each Cordless fashions in addition to Upright fashions. We now have the cordless V15 Detect and it suits on simply. You might already know this specific vacuum was a game-changer simply couple years again with its laser beam mild that sweeps the ground and illuminates just about each speck of mud and even canine hair in entrance of it. It additionally counts all of the mud mites and particles captures. It’s fascinating information.
What it does?
Through the use of the de-shedding brush attachment to your vacuum it retains a lot of the hairs on the top by gently brushing your pet to seize all of the free hairs. You’ll be able to activate the vacuum itself whereas brushing so it actively is sucking up the free hairs and extra of the lifeless pores and skin, mites.
Introducing the the Grooming Package to Your Canine:
After all, not all canines are followers of vacuums. Mine included. Whereas he tolerated the V15 Detect vacuum and continues to maintain a detailed eye on it, he’s gotten use to our day by day routine. Introducing the Dyson Pet Grooming attachment took a little bit of time. A few weeks truly.
I watched Dyson’s video recommendations on the best way to introduce my pet to this new attachment and began slowly. I picked the calmest a part of the day (for him and me) and just for a minute to see how he would react. He’s curious however cautious as with something new. I had positioned the attachment items close to Harley for just a few days and letting him sniff it with out the vacuum. Then I would depart the attachment on a desk close to him as I vacuumed often. On the second day I brushed him gently simply with the de-shedding head with out it being hooked up to the vacuum. Repeated once more a pair days later. As soon as he appeared comfy I introduced the 2 collectively however didn’t activate the vacuum at first. Ultimately I did activate the vacuum and used the comb however not for too lengthy or an excessive amount of with the de-shedding software. And he appears okay. We’re nonetheless working onto a full de-shedding brush with vacuum on however we’re affected person. FYI maintain high-value treats close to by. Within the meantime, we will brush after which activate the vacuum individually that also appears to do the job of retaining most of his hairs off the ground.
Since now we have the Dyson V15 Detect (laser know-how) vacuum it’s extra of a problem for one in every of us particular person to do that job because the vacuum itself doesn’t keep on with out the “on” set off being managed by hand. So, if we have to maintain one hand on Harley it’s a little bit of a circus. However for canines which can be true gems at staying completely nonetheless, you’ll be fantastic. Nevertheless, different Dyson vacuum fashions ought to work extra seamlessly. The newer variations have been up to date with on buttons staying on.
The Pet Grooming Package itself is a superb addition and makes numerous sense. De-shedding instruments/brushes work wonders on canines that shed lots. With mild brushing coupled with the vacuum’s immediate sucking and Dyson’s filtration and sealing know-how will assist maintain allergens and mud mites below management and never expelled again into your house.
De-shedding instruments are actually efficient but additionally not beneficial for use on a regular basis in your pet — you received’t must. However that’s additionally a part of this grooming package — figuring out that it helps to attenuate what lands on my flooring means much less brushing and fewer vacuuming total. That’s, if I can get myself out of that routine.
