If y’all only knew how much brushin’ goes on ’round my house! I’m not jokin’ one bit as the fur is always flyin’ WOOF! My Lady is always on a mission to help control the dog hair inside our house. She says our every other day groomin’ sessions help to control it. And, did I mention it keeps our fur soft and shiny? What girl doesn’t want soft shiny hair WOOF? The thing is, she got some new HandsOn Gloves the other day and has been usin’ them instead of our normal brush. Them gloves are PAWSOME!
HandsOn Gloves feel sooooo good! I could stand there all day lettin’ her rub all over me as they are soft as butter and feel like you are getting a massage. They don’t scratch ya like them brushes do – ouchies! Honestly, you feel like you are gettin’ petted all over – from head to toe WOOF!
Lemme fetch my Lady to tell more about the fun new brushin’ gloves we are lovin’!
Here’s what my Lady has to say about HandsOn Gloves!
If there is one thing I know about in my home, it is dog hair! With 10 dogs in my home, brushing and grooming is a necessity. A consistent brushing routine is what helps save my sanity. Don’t get me wrong! I still fight the never-ending dog hair but my every-other-day brushing routine helps keep it to a manageable level. Don’t even get me started on what happens if I let up on the routine EEK!
Not only will a brushing routine help fight the dog hair in your home, but it also helps your dogs. Brushing helps keep your dog’s hair soft and shiny by distributing the oils from the skin. It also helps rid them of dirt, dust, and pollen. And, if you have a long-haired dog, it helps to keep it from matting.
Speaking of brushing, I have a range of tools such as brushes, rakes, and combs that I use depending on fur and hair but recently added these amazing HandsOn Gloves!
I have tried gloves similar to these in the past but they were one of those spur-of-the-moment end cap items at Walmart. Do I even need to tell you what a failure those were? UGH! So, to make a long story short, I originally had my doubts about HandsOn Gloves too.
But, WOW did they fool me!!! After trying the HandsOn Gloves, I am completely and totally in love with them! There are several reasons, but first, let me show them to you. Then, I will tell you the amazing things that sold me on them!!
HandsOn Gloves for Wet & Dry Brushing and Bathing
HandsOn Gloves are great for either dry brushing or you can use them during bath time to clean more thoroughly. Dogs love the gentle massaging feel of them.
They have a velcro adjustable closure on the wrist to help them fit securely.
HandsOn Gloves also have flexible grip so you can easily handle water hoses, shampoo bottles, lead ropes, leashes, or anything else you may need with your gloves on.
The gloves feature scrubbing nodules on the fingers and palms to help provide a thorough deep clean. They are also great as a de-shedder tool. The nodules provide quick action without the risk of scratching their skin.
Big and Little, Seniors, Puppies, Lots of Hair or Barely Any Hair
– All Dogs LOVE HandsOn Gloves!
Dogs love the gentle soothing action. If your dogs are anything like mine, they will immediately come to you wanting you to rub and brush them. They love the feel of the gloves gently brushing them!
Even puppies like little Cooper loves them. They are gentle enough I can rub under his chin and around his face where he likes to be scrathed. I call it tickling his chin hairs 🙂
HandsOn gloves are also great for little dogs like my Rat Terrier. Poco will allow you to brush him with a brush but he is skittish of it at the same time. With the HandsOn Gloves, he just thinks he is being petted 🙂 He gets petted and I get his brushing in. It is a win for both of us!
Now, on to the biggest and hairiest of the group – Maggie Mae! Being a Germa Shepherd with a ton of hair (topcoat and an undercoat), is a super heavy shedder. In the spring, she blows coat heavily but she continues to shed year-round. It can seriously look like you have sheared a lamb outside after her brushing!
Here is where the real test of the gloves came in! When using a brush, it is long and time-consuming because, after 2-3 strokes, you have to stop and clean the brush out. So, I was a bit leery about how well the gloves were going to work on this amount of fur.
One stroke, two strokes and we have fur flying! Now, for the absolutely coolest thing! With one simple flick of your wrist, all the hair is gone from the glove! YES! THIS IS GENIUS! No more stopping to pick off the hair! You can simply resume petting and brushing. This right here has got to be my favorite aspect of the gloves, well besides the bonding time.
Bond with Pet While Grooming
I have often had people ask me how I manage 10 dogs of various sizes and ages without a multitude of jealousy and fights. The answer is simple! I make sure to spend time with EACH dog individually daily. That may sound extreme and very time-consuming but the truth is it can be a simple matter of only 10 minutes of individual time. As long as no one is slighted, it all works great and everyone gets their share of attention.
Well, what better way than to combine their daily brushing with their daily pets and snuggles?! My dogs are used to seeing me in gloves from wintertime gloves to gardening gloves in the summer. So, even the little ones that are normally skittish around grooming tools have no issues coming to me for pets. They just know they love being petted and pay no attention to the gloves. We won’t tell them they are actually getting brushed 🙂
