Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A grooming rake that'll help loosen tangles and lighten your pup's undercoat — without the yelps. 

    Promising reviews: "It really gets out the hair from the undercoat of my Aussie without pulling and hurting her. It came highly recommended by my groomer. It really helps with shedding, pulls that undercoat out, and keeps my old girl cool in the Florida heat." —R. Smith

    "This works amazing. I am a groomer and this works really well for the clients who have dogs with a lot of undercoat that’s shedding. I may get a second one for home use. And you can’t beat the price!" —Whitney

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    2. Or a different grooming rake (pick your poison!) specifically designed for dogs with thick, dense fur or double coats.

    Promising review: "I have a German shepherd affectionately known as a German 'Shedder.' All I do is chase this dog around the house with my Dyson, especially the two times a year she blows her coat. I had no expectations when I ordered the undercoat rake as nothing else has worked besides a spring shave, which looks ridiculous. By reading the other reviews I utilized short strokes, one area at a time and literally the fur was flying. It's the first time I really felt like I could successfully get to and eliminate the undercoat shedding. So much was coming off of her a neighbor walking by expressed her displeasure with the flying fur! I've used it several days in a row now and despite the fact she's not a fan of standing still that long I think it is fantastic." —MollsMav

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    3. A dog shampoo to reduce shedding and hopefully keep you from feeling like a giant fur-covered porcupine every time you get up from the couch. 

    Reviewers say that their dogs shed A LOT after the first wash with this deshedding shampoo, but over time they notice less shedding.

    Promising review: "I used to be a professional dog groomer, and this stuff works!! Nothing takes away all the shedding of course, but this stuff and the conditioner really make a huge difference. The key is mostly in the conditioner; you rub it in to the coat, then use a dog dryer (NO heat) to blow the conditioner into the coat backwards. Next rinse out completely and again use the dryer. I like the fact that the ingredients are not full of all kinds of chemicals." —Jon

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. A bottle of Burt's Bees dander-reducing spray to help get your cat's coat to a soft, shiny spot with far less flakes, dander, and loose fur.

    Reviewer's before and after showing the spray got rid of their cat's dander

    Promising review: "My old kitty girl has suffered from dandruff for a long time and nothing I've given her has helped until now. She recently started pulling her fur out in tufts to the point of bald spots and I knew I had to try this. One application brought her immediate relief and she hasn't pulled her fur out ever since, which tells me her skin irritation problem is gone. Her coat is soft and looks great and her dander is nearly gone. We both are very happy with this product!" —MADuran

    Get it from Amazon for $6.13 (or Subcribe & Save for $5.82/month).

    5. Or a pack of Burt's Bees cat wipes that'll keep your kitty fresh between baths. It basically does the same thing as the spray. So it's up to you and your cat's preference!

    The wipes

    Promising review: "Our son was having a lot of dander on his back near the base of his tail. We kept up the brushing but it wasn't going away. Looking at the reviews I decided to go for the dander wipes. Well I have used it twice and was blown away. His dander is pretty much all gone now. Plus his hair seems shinier and silkier after his brushing and using the wipes. Not to mention our baby boy looks just like the cat on the packaging. All around I will continue to buy these and use once a week or twice every two weeks to keep up his beautiful orange coat. Thanks Burt's Bees!" —Tom Cincotta

    Get a pack from Amazon for $6.26 (or Subscribe & Save for $5.95/month).

    6. An allergy supplement that reviewers say has helped dogs will all sorts of skin sensitivities scratch and shed less. They have a dose of probiotics and other nutrients said to help improve immune function, aid digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.,

    Promising review: "Unbelievable improvement! My 11-year-old Lab started to shed like never before. Piles of his fur on his beds and surrounding them. Vet couldn’t find cause because there was no itching, scratching, just hair falling out in mounds. She also didn’t think it was an allergy because nothing had changed in his environment. Looking on the internet I found the reviews for this product. Within one week I saw a difference and now a month later his coat is almost back to normal and shedding has almost stopped completely. And he likes the taste and the smell isn’t overwhelming. We started with the Turkey flavor which he really loves but he also eats these without coaxing." —caps

    7. A doggie blow-dryer with a flexible hose and two heating settings to help transform your dog from wet mess to runway ready.

    Promising review: "Just received this dryer and what a difference it made for my beagle's undercoat! I had heard from a groomer in the past that she wasn't a fan dryers but had never used one myself on her. She moved from it a lot at first, but I kept it on low to get her used to it and she was pretty calm by the end. Huge difference in the amount of her shedding = totally worth my patience in drying her on low while she had the wiggles! ;)" —Dee M.

    Get it from Amazon for $79 (available in two colors).

    8. A deshedding tool that'll remove the undercoat on long-haired cats...minus the painful tugging. 

    Promising review: "I was desperately trying to find a groomer who took care of cats, I ordered the Furminator and had the most amazing results and no longer need to hire a cat groomer. All three of my cats love to be brushed with the Furminator. And I no longer have any tumbleweeds of fur on the floor. I love this thing, it’s amazing how well it works." —sunny and cher

    Get it from Amazon for $19.66+ (available in two sizes and four styles).

    9. A 16-piece grooming kit to create a glamorous transformation everyone in your life should see on your Instagram. (And by everyone in your life, I mean ME.),

    The full set has everything you need to give your pup or cat a nice haircut. It comes with one scissor, seven combs, two comb organizers, four finger inserts, one grooming guide, and one storage bag.

    Promising review: "This product must have been created with my long haired cat in mind! Trimming her hair on her hind quarters for cleanliness or cutting out clumps of shedding hair has always been a battle and a worry. Grooming her should not have to be a traumatic experience for her and one for me in fear of accidentally cutting her. With the Scaredy Cut all of that is eliminated. She thinks she is being petted and brushed and before she knows it I have cut away the problem areas with absolutely no worry of hurting her." —Nunya1103

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in left and right hand sets and in two colors).

    10. A reusable roller dog hair remover that'll have you toss your old sticky roller after you see how much fur this reusable one (it has a sturdy brush system) picks up on surfaces you thought were just going to be covered in fur forever.

    Promising review: "If I could give this product 6 stars, I would. My husband and I use it almost every day. We have three furry dogs and six fluffy cats, which makes for A LOT of hair. We were using a lint roller before we bought our ChomChom Roller. The lint roller didn't work very well and had to be replaced. We have had our ChomChom Roller for months and it still works just as well as it did when we first got it. We can actually invite our friends over now without worrying about all the pet hair." —Morgan Willis

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    11. A detangling shampoo might just have you filming a slo-mo video for your grid of your dog shaking his glossy, NOT tangly ears. 

    Promising review: "Worked great on my two adult rough collies! Helped me remove the spring coat shedding nightmare." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $9.49/three months).

    12. A low-noise electric pet shaver for scaredy cats (and dogs) who don't do well at the groomer's. It's easily rechargeable and equipped with a safe, stainless-steel blade.

    Promising review: "I have a large border collie/chow mixed breed dog that sheds small dogs. When I trim him it is more like sheering a black sheep rather than a dog. This cut right through his thick undercoat. My trimmer was my husbands old clippers and it has a cord. I love the cordless feature although because of the size of my dog and that he was way overgrown the battery died before I could finish and I had to recharge and finish later. I think if it will be fine next time if I don't wait till the fur is so extremely long." —The Robe Warrior

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in six colors).

    13. A scratchy lil' tool that'll FINALLY get all the pet hair off your fabric surfaces both inside your house and car. You'll wonder how you lived without up until now.

    Promising review: "This this is like magic. Our van was nasty and covered with hair from a German and Australian Shepherd. Looked brand new after. Don’t think about just buy it. It will blow your mind." —Dan

    Get it from Amazon for $10.19.

    14. A pack of grooming wipes perfect for in between grooming appointments or as an alternative to professional grooming if you can't get your dog there for health or financial reasons.

    Promising review: These are great wipes. I use them for my cat. She enjoys being wiped down with these. I use one in each hand and give her a massage everyday using these wipes. They smell nice and are very moist, not dry at all. They are also nice and big and thick! These will be the only wipes I buy for her from now on. I’ve tried others and these are by far the best ones. So happy I finally found these for my cat. They help tremendously with her shedding and dander. Most importantly, she loves them. She purrs the whole time i use these on her. Great product!" —Online Shopping is My Middle Name!

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $10.79/two months; available in two scents).

    15. An affordable hand vac that'll make cleaning up discarded fluff from your furniture NBD. Seriously, walking around in a fur suit out of laziness is no way to live.

    Promising review: "Holy crap!! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! That's why I figured all of these rave reviews were a crock of crap. I've seriously bought every kind of vacuum out there. But I have four cats and a Golden Retriever, so I was getting desperate! I believe the saying is… a picture is worth a thousand words. Check mine out! Of note, the 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left behind hair!!! And the 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD! BTW, I've NEVER taken the time to review a product before, just FYI." —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    16. A broom for pet hair to unearth all that fur stuck in your area rug you've just learned to live with by now. It also works on wood and linoleum. And the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches!,

    Promising review: "Nothing else would take pet hair off of my outdoor porch furniture cushions. This broom took it all off easily. One of the best brooms I have ever had for pet hair removal on floors and furniture." —Kelli Thompson

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    Check out my colleague Emma Lord's Evrilholder FURemover broom review for more satisfying before and after photos!

    17. And a touchless stationary vacuum you can simply sweep that pile of fur into rather than scooping it into a dust pan and then trying to dump it into the trash can, only to have hair flying around everywhere.

    Promising reviews: "This has been a champ for the first few months. So much better than a cordless vacuum stick with a lab who sheds — pull out a wide brush, push it around the room, aim for the stationary vacuum, and let 'er rip (a small broom helps target better for the last step). One minute and done. Emptying isn’t necessary every day, but it is easy to do. No complaints at all so far." —R. Marlowe

    "I have an autoimmune disorder that causes reoccurring massive hair fall out. I decided to put one in our master bath to make cleaning easier. It does the job and has made life a bit easier and a whole lot cleaner. I may add another for our kitchen. We also have a miniature golden doodle. And this vacuum works so much better than trying to manage the hair with a robo-vac type tool that ends up with hair wrapped around its brush." —Rebecca O

    Get it from Amazon for $149 (available in three colors).

    18. A mounted brush that'll help your cat get in some scritches while loosening fur you don't have time to brush. Go ahead, be productive doing other things with your hands!,

    Promising review: "None of my cats like to play with toys and it was driving me nuts! They have so much energy but would get bored with any toy within days. I tried rotating them and interactive toys, anything and everything for hours and at different times. There is nothing that has kept my cats busy like these grooming tools! I have literally never seen any of them sit and mess with something for more than a few minutes but my cats will rub on this for like 20 minutes at a time. 100% worth the money!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    19. A pair of sweeper slippers so you can pick up fur (and even some of your own dirt and hair) as you stroll around your home. They also fit over a Swiffer! And are machine-washable!,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these! I kind of bought them as a joke. I hate wearing socks, shoes, or slippers, but I also HATE dirty feet. These were the answer I was looking for! They are lightweight on my feet...hardly notice I'm wearing them, and by golly they pick up the dust and dirt that our dog leaves behind! They also wash very nicely. We always wish in Tide and these looked brand new after being washed. I'm very pleased with my purchase!" —Tim S.

    Get five pairs from Amazon for $13.99.

    20. A hair-removing glove for pets who KNOW what you're doing when you pull out a regular brush. They'll think they're getting a total treat but I'll keep our evil secret.

    Promising review: "Awesome pet hair remover! I have a Korat mix cat with short hair that's impossible to groom with a brush. I've tried all kinds of combs and brushes and nothing has worked well on him. I took this out of the package, I showed it to him and let him sniff it and then pet him with it. This thing is awesome! With just a few strokes I removed a ton of cat hair. I highly recommend this for hard-to-groom cats." —LB in the OC

    Get it from Amazon for $5.94+ (available in three colors).

    21. A pet-proof seat cover to help the inside of your car from turning into a tornado of pet fur. It also catches sand and dirt too. So that's good news.,

    Promising review: "I have a Swiss shepherd and he often gets very messy. I used to take him to the park and lake without a seat cover and my car was a big mess. My last cover broke pretty quickly so I replaced it with this one. I love the non-slip bottom. It is waterproof and protects my car seats from mud, water and fur. The seat belt openings are large enough. This is a great product, high quality, and reasonably priced." —electric

    Get it from Amazon for $36.96 (available in four colors).

    22. And a furniture cover that'll do the same for your pet's favorite perch, no matter how many times you tell 'em they're not allowed up there. And when it's in need of a clean, just throw it in the washing machine.,

    Promising review: "This cover has been a lifesaver for our fabric sofa. We had the sofa professionally cleaned and then put on the cover. When we have company, the cover comes off easily, stores easily, and leaves a hair-free, stain-free sofa for our guests. The cover's been on three months, and has been washed twice. All stains have come out without any special effort. We use a ChomChom to get dog hair off the cover while it's on the sofa. There doesn't seem to be any deterioration of the cover even though we use the ChomChom almost daily." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in three sizes and 15 colors).

    23. A handy TubShroom to take on the hard task of helping clean out your tub after bathtime. It works well for human *and* pet hair, just so you know.,

    Promising review: "I shower my dogs in the tub and this makes it really easy to clean out the dog hair. It doesn't just stop the dog hair from going down the drain but it also lets the water continue to drain while collecting loads of dog hair. When my dog is shedding, I do have to pull it out to clean twice but that beats having to grab clumps of fur from the top of the drain every few seconds" —EV

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    24. Or a drain clog remover in case it's a little too late for that. Use this, then put in a TubShroom so your future is a little less gross.

    Reviewer holding the snake, which has grabbed a massive chunk of hair from the drain

    Promising review: "I wish I would have had this years and years ago...all the money I'd have saved! The pictures that people post are accurate as to what came out of the tub drain. It was disgusting. I have long hair and we have a dog that we bathe in the tub; it was so gross. The hair kept coming and coming and coming...yuck! I am so happy to have clear drains now that drain quickly (quicker than EVER!) without the use of chemicals. Plus, it's so much cheaper than buying the liquid stuff that doesn't work even half as well. I highly recommend this product. You will be amazed at not only what comes out of your shower drain, but also what comes out of your sink drains as well. It's quite alarming and gross, but you feel so good when it's gone!" —MN Mom

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $9.88.

    25. And a 2-in-1 Hoover carpet cleaner built to take on pet hair deep DEEP down in your carpets.,

    Promising review: "I love everything about the Hoover Smartwash Automatic Carpet cleaner! With adopting our daughter's 16-year-old cat recently, we forgot what problems we used to have with our older cats; not a lot of fun at times. Since we have had the old boy it has been fun, except when he has hairballs, and then the real fun starts! We received our new Hoover shampooer about two weeks ago. So simple to operate, and the carpets dry exceptionally fast. Don't be lazy and do the final rinse with clean water as suggested. The touch button 'full time' dry feature allows you to go back and forth in the dry mode and ALL the excess water comes up like a charm. No leakage, very fast-cleaning, and exceptional suction! I didn't need to pre-spot anything. A great machine!!!" —Peter E. von Elten

    Get it from Amazon for $178.

    26. Or! A robot vacuum that'll hook up to Alexa for voice control, which is the closest you're getting to acting like an evil stepsister at the moment. (Hopefully!),

    Promising review: "After running Eufy for nearly two months now, I can confidently say I absolutely LOVE it! It is amazing on my hardwood floors. It picks up sooo much fine dust brought in by my two German Shepards! They shed year-round! And it’s super effective with pet hair! Wow! I use Eufy once a day for a little more than hour, emptying and cleaning the brushes out about three to four times during use. It seriously has been life-changing, keeping my floors cleaner than sweeping! Great purchase and I would highly recommend!!" —Jacqueline M
