I have a white furbaby that sheds all year, and this kind of brush is the only brush I have found that literally, I pull off a whole kitten from him in huge petting session.
Other Tips to Try with Vacuum
When Vacuuming go one direction then go the other direction once you’re done the room. Yes its more work – but it’s nice to loosen up any stubborn hair that may be trapped deep into the carpet.

Vacuum more often – I know Right!?! More Cleaning? but it will help to keep cat and dog hair at bay if there’s less roaming around.
