1. FURminator Undercoat Deshedding Tool

First thing’s first: pet hair. If your dog sheds a lot, and even if they don’t, you’re going to want to get a good deshedding tool. FURminator has been the go-to name in deshedding for years, and with good reason. Brush your pup with a FURminator a few times a week and you’ll notice fewer piles of hair on the floor plus a shiner, healthier coat on your dog.
