Groom Glider is a fairly flat brush for dogs and cats with flexible silicone bristles. It's been designed to help you detangle your pet's coat, remove any excess hair that's been shed, and then add shampoo for a bath when necessary. After you work on your pet's dry hair and then flip the tool over, you'll notice that the opposite side contains honeycomb ridges instead of bristles. These ridges are meant to hold shampoo that, along with water, can clean your dog or cat's coat.
The cost of Groom Glider is $14.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Groom Glider at the discounted price of only $6.99 for a total price of $28.97.

To get started with your Groom Glider, brush your cat or dog's coat as you would while using a standard hairbrush. However, you must be sure that you're using the side of the brush with bristles instead of ridges. As you run the bristles along your dog or cat's fur, they'll reach all the way down to your pet's undercoat and gently massage out any tangles. Meanwhile, the entire tool will pick up any hair that's shed and collect it up, so you can dispose of it later.
Before you move on to bathing your dog or cat with this grooming tool, it's best to clean out the bristled side of your brush. Simply pull out any hair that's stuck in the bristles (you should be able to do this with just one hand) and toss it in the trash can of your choice.
If your pet's not in an area that can be exposed to water, like a bathtub or sink, you'll need to move them there. Then add your choice of pet shampoo to the side of your grooming tool that has honeycomb ridges, and add a bit of water along with it. Next, in order to bathe your pet, just brush the tool along their coat and the water and shampoo you've added will do the job. Your pet likely won't find this as unpleasant as being submerged in water, and they may even enjoy this type of liquid cleaning.
Once you're done shampooing your pet, rinse off your grooming brush with water, and run it over your pet's coat a few more times to brush away the shampoo. Rinse the brush with water a final time and then store it someplace safe until its next use.
The handle on each Groom Glider is about the same length as the handles commonly found on human hairbrushes, and has been designed to feel comfortable to grip. That means you'll likely be able to get through a long grooming session with your pet, involving both brushing and bathing, without feeling as if the hand you're holding your tool with is sore. The easy-grip handle will also be difficult to drop, even if you have to comb through a particularly nasty tangle within a very thick coat.
While some grooming tools are suitable for just dogs or just cats, this one is suitable for cats and dogs alike, regardless of their size, hair type, age or breed. As a result, if you wash the tool in between uses, you may choose to use the same one for multiple canines or felines in your home. You'll also be able to lend it to another dog or cat owner without worrying about whether it'll work properly on their animal companion's hair.
As the bristles of your Groom Glider burrow deep into your pet's coat, massaging all the hair, your pet's body will end up receiving a gentle massage, too. This will promote increased blood flow throughout the body, which may enhance your pet's overall health. The massaging action will also promote the secretion of natural, shine-enhancing oils from your pet's coat, which will make their fur appear healthy and lustrous as opposed to dull or dry.
If your pet has a type of coat that tends to shed a lot of hair, you may often find some of that fur on your furniture or your clothing. Fortunately, you'll be able to use your Groom Glider to remove loose hair from those areas just as effectively as you can to remove it from your pet. Therefore, not only will your pet look his or her best, but you and your home will also appear cleaner and more attractive.
Those people who only have a metal brush or a battery-operated grooming tool might be reluctant to let their child groom their pet, lest the child be too aggressive and accidentally hurt the pet. It's difficult not to be gentle with the Groom Glider, though, so it's a great tool for a child to use as an introduction to pet grooming. Even if their dexterity isn't great yet, and the brush slips, it's unlikely that the pliable silicone bristles will ever cause a pet pain.
When you groom a pet with a tool that they don't enjoy the feeling of or bathe them by ducking half their body underwater, you may hear a lot of howling or yowling. You might find, however, that your ears aren't exposed to such noise when you use your Groom Glider to brush and bathe your pet instead. Although every pet may not find it super-fun to be groomed with this tool, they'll probably at least find it tolerable, as opposed to scary or painful.
This grooming tool runs solely on human power, which means you won't need to add batteries or plug it into an electrical outlet when you want to use it. Plus, it doesn't contain a motor that might make an irritating noise. Due to the lack of electricity required for operation, there won't be many restrictions when it comes to where you can use this tool. You might want to groom your pet in your bathroom if there's a chance they'll get soaked, but if your pet enjoys being outside, you could also choose to groom them in your yard.
Even if you brush your pet yourself, you might take them to a groomer's to be bathed because you don't want to go through the trying experience of getting them into a tub yourself. Once you've got a Groom Glider, though, there may no longer be a need for such appointments in your life. You'll be able to shampoo your pet's coat without giving them a complete bath, and once they figure out they're not being put in a tub, they may stop resisting the cleaning. If that's the case, the part of your budget that used to go to grooming appointments may be able to go towards new toys for your pet.
