Vacuuming the dog could become a regular part of the housework, James Dyson has suggested.
Speaking at the launch of a new accessory from his Dyson vacuum cleaner company, the inventor suggested that owners could directly clean their dogs to prevent unwanted hair covering furniture.
The “Groom Tool”, which is only compatible with Dyson’s own machines, features stainless steel bristles which the company says will help remove loose hair and dead skin before it is shed. It also claims that it could help people with allergies.
James Dyson claimed that “A moulting dog isn’t man’s best friend. Conventional grooming tools create a fur cloud and more cleaning.”
The company stressed that the tool causes dogs no discomfort and hadbeen rigorously tested. Bristle length can be adjusted, and the accessory is designed to automatically suck all hair and allergens up before they are dispersed.
The groom tool is only suitable for dogs with medium and long hair.
The product is being launched online initially and is likely to be available in shops from spring next year.
