Groomaroo

34 Votes

Rate this product

Groomaroo is a circle-shaped tool that you can use to trim your dog or cat's fur, regardless of its length or texture. The tool, which you can hold in one hand while you hold onto your pet in the other, is quiet and gentle, which reduces the likelihood that it'll upset your pet. Its design ensures that its blades will never come in direct contact with a pet's skin, so your dog or cat will stay safe even if you're not an experienced groomer.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Groomaroo is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Groomaroo by paying the extra shipping fee of $7.99 for a total price of $35.97.

Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: getgroomaroo.com

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Adjust Dial

    To use your Groomaroo, first adjust its movable dial to the setting that corresponds to the length of your pet's hair.

  2. Turn on

    Next, press the power button on the front of your device in order to power it up. Once you've done so, it'll begin to make a quiet whirring noise.

  3. Groom Pet

    Finally, begin to move the device gently up and down your pet's coat in order to detangle and trim it. You can either move it in circles or back and forth—either way will work just as effectively, so go with the method that feels most comfortable or the one your pet seems to enjoy.

  4. Empty Fur

    Your Groomaroo will collect trimmed-off fur within its middle pocket during each grooming session, so all you'll need to do is empty it into a wastebasket or another trash receptacle after you're done.

Features

  • Gentle

    This grooming tool is super-gentle towards both pets and humans. Not only will its blades never touch your pet's skin directly, they are so harmless that they won't cut your finger if you accidentally touch them yourself.

  • Quiet

    The whirring noise that this tool makes sounds more like the hum of a furnace than the sound of a blow dryer, so it likely won't scare or irritate your cat or dog. Other people nearby probably won't be bothered by the noise, either.

  • Compact

    Each Groomaroo is about the size of a hockey puck, so it'll fit in most handbags or your glove compartment if you decide you want to groom your pet somewhere besides your home.

  • Cordless

    You won't need to connect to a source of power to use your Groomaroo, which means you can use it virtually anywhere. Furthermore, you won't need to worry about an extension cord taking up valuable storage space in your car, bag, or home, either.

Positive Points

  • Feels Like Massage

    Your Groomaroo will gently massage your dog or cat while trimming its coat, so your pet may even willingly enjoy a grooming session with it instead of begrudgingly putting up with the process.

  • Works on Variety of Coats

    Since this tool will effectively trim and detangle cat or dog hair, regardless of its length, you might be able to use it for more than one of your pets. As mentioned, each won't take up that much space, so you may choose to get each pet their own grooming device that can be customized for their specific hair length.

  • Good for Novice Groomers

    If you're an inexperienced groomer, you might find it difficult to work with other grooming tools, such as fine-toothed combs and small pairs of scissors. However, Groomaroo is so simple and safe to operate that even older children will be able to groom pets with it, no matter how much grooming experience they've had.

Alternatives

  • Professional Grooming

    Instead of using the Groomaroo, you could take your dog or cat to a professional to be groomed. This would require you to spend a lot of time sitting and waiting at appointments, though, along with the time you'd spend driving your pet to them.

  • Scissors and Clippers

    Some people choose to use small pairs of scissors or clippers to groom a pet's coat, but if you aren't experienced with grooming, or lack hand-eye coordination, you could accidentally cut your pet with these.

Issues

  • Does Not Work on Hair Types

    Some online reviews state that the Groomaroo did not function on their pet's hair, either because it was a short hair pet or had curly hair.

  • Louder Than Perceived

    Some online reviewers have mentioned that the Groomaroo is louder than they expected it to be when in operation. The loud sounds have been stated to cause their pet distress when getting groomed and so the user was not able to continue to groom their pet with this product.

  • Missing Instructions

    Some online reviews of the Groomaroo state that the instructions provided were not complete or understandable. These users found it difficult to begin to operate the device and some users decided to return the product due to frustration. The user is encouraged to read the instructions completely before beginning to operate the device and contact the company should questions arise.

How it's Different from Competitors

Other grooming tools on the market involve using scissors or clippers which could cause anxiety and stress for your pet. The Groomaroo looks like a toy and so it should not cause stress on the animal when put against their fur and hair. Also, the Groomaroo is different than just using scissors or clippers in that the mechanism does not actually go close to the pet's fur. This completely prevents any mistakes, like cutting or nicking your pet, from happening. The user can be sure that they will not injure or cut their pet when using this product, instead of scissors.

Save Money

The Groomaroo can save the pet owner money because they will never need to spend funds on a professional groomer or services again. Regular grooming services are costly and can add up over time, especially if the pet absolutely requires the grooming. With the Groomaroo, the pet owner never needs to go to the vet or groomer again. Also, currently there is a promotional offer where if the consumer purchases the product, they receive a pair of nail clippers for free.

Save Time

The Groomaroo saves the pet owner time by having this personal grooming device in the comfort of their own home. Otherwise, the pet owner would need to waste time making appointments and going to vet appointments.

Critical Advice

Should the pet owner find that the Groomaroo does not work with their pets hair, the company will refund the purchase. The company policy is that they will fully refund the product within 60 days of purchase. One user reported that their pets hair was too curly to use for the device and they were able to get the refund.

Cons

  • Batteries

    Batteries are not included with the purchase of the Groomaroo. The user must separately purchase two double A batteries and insert them into the device in order to begin to use the device.

  • Pet May Not Enjoy

    Despite the Groomaroo being quiet and easy to use for the pet owner, the pet still may not enjoy or let themselves be groomed. Many pets, especially cats, and dogs often have biological responses to being dirty and they are able to clean themselves.

Wise Advice

Do not buy Groomaroo online before searching Amazon.
- Alternatives or the same items are always available and sometimes at lower prices.

I Want my Money Back!

It does not work. The name of the product is Groomaroo. It does not cut anything, much less hair. I even trimmed my dogs hair first just to give it a chance. Not even that worked. I want my money back.

Caution a RIP Off!

I had seen the video after I purchased this product. Wrong! I still was thinking maybe the dog in the video's hair was the wrong type to work. Well still giving this product the benefit of a doubt I tried it on my sweet dog. Absolutely didn't work. It also pulled the hair like the video stated. The dog wanted no part of it and she's an easy going dog. Don't put your dog through this or spend your money. Now I have to go through the expense and inconvenience of sending it back. Believe all these negative reviews. It belongs back in china where it was made.

What a Scam

I just bought this for $20 because the grocery store didn't carry any other grooming supplies for dog hair. Complete waste of my money. It is not quiet and barley cuts any hair at all on my Black Lab. It would take forever. It is worse than using my clippers made for human hair. I am definitely going to try and return it for a full refund and go to the pet store instead.

This is the worst product ever. It was not quiet at all. I placed the batteries in and it ran for approximately 10-20 seconds before stopping and it never clipped my dog. I received this product just a couple of days after I had had my dog groomed and I also let her coat grow longer in the winter, so by the time I tried it, I was outside the 30 days return policy. Please save your money!

Waste of Money

Directions are minimal so it doesn't even explain how to adjust the blades. I tried it on my Yorkie / bichon mix and only a very small amount of hair was collected. I am hoping to return it to my local Ross store.

Groomaroo, What a Waste

Complete waste of money. Doesn't cut and not quiet. Tried fast and slow, circular and straight over entire dog. Cut maybe 10 hairs, if that.

Horrible Reviews

Could not find one positive review on this product. Did not like that you cannot order just one on their website so you are really getting roped in to paying $16 s&h for a $20 product. Started looking to see if I could buy a single unit at a retail store and found all these negative reviews. Thanks to all for saving me the time & trouble of buying and then having to return a disappointing product.

Doesn't Cut at All, do Not Buy

As the other reviews state, this doesn't cut any hair whatsoever. I can't believe it made it past the first 5 minutes of product testing, if any was done at all. The Groomaroo is an absolute scam. Don't waste your $20.

IT DOESN'T WORK at ALL

Even on shortest setting, it does not cut any hair at all. It's totally useless. Please don't waste your money on it because the company May not refund it. As for me, I am lucky, because I bought it ( $13.00 ) at a discount store that will give me a full refund with my receipt.

Just go to the Groomer

The reason groomers cost so much is because they spend thousands of dollars on their equipment and it's upkeep every year. You cannot buy a Novelty trimmer and expect it to cut through dog hair. Trust your groomer, and their expert advice when it comes to grooming your difficult pet instead of wasting money on a product that is guaranteed not to cut through your pets hair. The average cutting blade costs $40, powerful enough clippers generally cost around $200. You're not going to get quality out of something that costs $20.

DISAPPOINTED :(

Have tried this on 2 dogs. One short haired ( definately not for that one ) and a yorkie. Did not cut any hair and was on the shortest setting. Tried the circles, back and forth. Nothing. It is time for him to be groomed so his hair is long and out of shape. The dog does not mind the groomer running so I guess that statement is correct. Just lost 20 bucks I guess because I am sure they will not refund!

Customer Reviews?

I'm like others. In waiting to hear from other responses before I jump in. I've been taken I on these before, so I'm a little hesistant to order without knowing more on the product review from more customers.

Hi Zack, I really want to order the Groomaroo, but hesitate because of the horrible reviews I read about Spark Innovators in New Jersey ( they supply the Groomaroo ), and unsatisfied customers who bought other products from them. Every few days I check to see if any actual customers have bought Groomaroo and reviewed it, but so far--nothing. I was wondering if you got any feedback from anybody that bought the Groomaroo.

Thanks for writing Dee. You are the first and only response I've gotten. I think we will pass on the Groomaroo. Zack.

Just received mine after two month wait. Unfortunately, I had my dog groomed the day before it came. So I can't review until his due grows back. 😕.

Zack, This is the worst product ever. Not only do they not cut hair, they simply do not run. They're horrible and they will not give you your money back.
