Our dogs shed like CRAZY. We’ve gone through 3 (THREE!) different Dyson animal vacuums just from how often we are vacuuming in our house. It clumps on the floor, on the stairs, into the fabric, onto clothes, into the vents… the list goes on.
The only way we’ve been able to keep our sanity is by brushing our dogs frequently. We’ve used de-shedding brushes of all sorts. Everything from a pet hair brush to various models of the Furminator brush. Our most recent discovery has been the pet grooming glove, and we absolutely love it!

What Is a Pet Grooming Glove?
A pet grooming glove is, well, a glove. The part that makes it so easy for grooming is that it has thick rubber nubs on the inside of your fingers and palms, much like a dog hairbrush.
When we tried this glove for the first time, we were skeptical. We have two dogs. One that sheds a lot, and one that sheds like CRAZY. It usually takes at least 20 minutes to brush them both. Using this pet grooming glove took less than 5 minutes to do them both.
The rubber bristles on the glove are like a magnet for dog hair.
Why We Love The Pet Grooming Glove
Not only did it save us a lot of time with brushing our dogs, but they loved every second of it. It’s like a ticket to scritch-scratch heaven for them. To make it even better, the hair seems to stay on the glove the whole time, too!
This means we are able to use it indoors without finding ourselves in a flurry of fur that requires pulling out the vacuum!
These pet grooming gloves also claim to be very gentle on dog hair and were designed with keeping a dog’s coat healthy by keeping its oils intact. From our experience in some fairly rough brushing sessions, we can vouch to say this brush was one of the gentlest brushes our dogs has ever received.
It is also a nice change to see our dogs running towards us when they see us pick up these gloves instead of running off to avoid getting cleaned like a toddler who hates bath time!
How To Clean A Pet Grooming Glove
I’ll be honest. Getting the hair out of the bristles on this brush wasn’t easy at first. It takes a bit of practice to figure out how to remove the hair. Once you figure it out, it’s rather easy.
Pro Tip: Don’t Use Water!
Water will only make the hair damp and that makes it harder to remove. The best way to remove the hair is by first acknowledging that the hair wants to come out. You just need to allow it.
Just follow this quick process:
- Remove the pet grooming glove.
- Bend and twist the glove (think like opening and closing your hand)
- Pull on the edge of the entirety of the hair clump.
- The hair will then peel off nicely from the entire pet grooming glove.
We also found it sometimes helps to rub the palms together to make the bristles brush each other. This doesn’t really work for getting the initial hair off the brush, but it can help with taking off the remaining strands.
If you don’t want to struggle at all, you can just whip out the vacuum and suck all the hair out. This isn’t something we like to do because we like our vacuum. Excessive hair vacuuming can damage the filter for the vacuum, even if it is designed for animal hair. Trust us, we know.
