Hi guys, I'm from Brazil and I've never seen this brush here, but I have a friend in US and I'm thinking on buying it. The thing is I'm getting a Samoyed and Kuvasz and I'd like to know if this brush would work well on them.
Thanks =]

I think it would! They are both thick, double coated breeds right? I would expect clouds of hair with the zoom groom.
If anything, it would give them a nice massage!

Actually, I'd be concerned about the rubber grabbing that long, think hair, and pulling. That would make it uncomfortable, or even painful for the dog. For my guys, I use a rake, a Greyhound comb, and a pin brush.

Yeah that's actually what I was concerned about, but my idea was to use it on the dogs and then use the furminator brush... I could be wrong but I guess it would be nice to use a brush before the furminator to untangle the fur and make it easier for the furminator to go thru the fur since they have a lot of it ....right? Of course it could be another brush besides the zoom groom is just that the dogs seems to enjoy it so much...

A Zoom Groom will not detangle. It's designed to be a shedding tool, and a bathing brush. I also would not use a Furminator type on a longer coat. It is nothing more than a clipper blade on a handle. Thus, it will cut hair, rather than simply removing dead coat. You will end up with a moth-eaten look.

a zoom groom will only benifit them in a bath to massage shampoo in. I wouldnt recomend it for anything else, also do not use a furminator. it will do nothing one those breeds. a slicker, undercoat rake and comb is the essentials.

I have one, it works alright on my medium coated border collie and is useless on my sheltie. I would think it would be useless on Samoyed too as it doesn't seem to get past the top coat down to the undercoat at all. I also don't use a furminator, I feel like it breaks the hair. The only thing I use is a regular old undercoat rake, works best. I will have to try the zoom groom in the bath though, I hadn't thought of that.

I use a slicker, a poodle comb and a Mars Coat King on my Golden Retriever. I also use these tools at work, just be careful when using the coat king, it can actually "bald" the dog out.

I find that it works very well when you are using the Furmantor shampoo and conditioner because you have to work them into the coat for at least 5 minutes, so it can cut that time down a little bit.
