The KONG ZoomGroom™ is a rubber handheld grooming and shampooing brush and an amazing canine tool.

By Laura Pakis, Certified Professional Dog Trainer and cynologist,

The staff at Acme Canine has been using ZoomGroom for years.  When brushing short hair dogs, this tool helps dry skin by distributing the dog’s natural skin oils. It also helps with shedding by picking up loose hairs out of the dog’s coat.  We found it is also great for bathing all dog types since it helps the shampoo get into the undercoat.  And most dogs love being bathed with it since it massages as you wash.

This 2-in-1 tool massages your dog while you brush and removes loose hair like a magnet.  Brushing is done gently in a circular motion, and the rubber fingers do the work.

KONG ZoomGrooms™ are less expensive than most other grooming tools and last a good while.  It comes in two sizes Small/Puppy and Regular;  Small/Puppy size ideal for puppies and small breeds, Regular size ideal for medium to large-sized breeds.  Both sizes come in Boysenberry or Raspberry. We have been using ours for about 2 years, and the rubber is still soft and supple.

The KONG ZoomGroom™ helps make it easier to get your dogs clean. While shampooing, use the ZoomGroom™ to clean your dogs’ coat. The 3/4 inch rubber fingers reach through the coat to massage the skin, stimulating capillaries and natural oil production, leading to a healthy coat for your dog.

As a brush, it is NOT for long-haired dogs such as Maltese, Great Pyrenees, Poodles, etc., since the hair tends to “stick” to the rubber fingers.  Acme Canine recommends it as a brush for only short-haired dogs and puppies.

Over time the rubber brush fingers will wear down and become very dull. Because of this, the tool will need to be replaced every few years depending on use.

Also, be sure to keep it out of reach of your dog when you aren’t using it! We have found several dogs that wanted to chew on it like a toy because it is rubber.

Acme Canine gives ZoomGroom 5 paws up for design, durability, and its ability to remove hair and help shed short-haired dogs.  By the way, we are not compensated for selling this product or writing this product review. 🙂
