True Touch Cost
True Touch costs $14.99 plus $4.99 P&H. A second glove is added for another $4.99 P&H, and you can’t opt out of this double offer. The total cost is $24.97. A left handed TrueTouch can be added to online orders for another $9.99.
Note that the second glove was originally free when I first posted this review in February 2016, as you can see in the screen shot below.
Look for True Touch in stores for about $15, although I have only seen the right-handed version locally.
Brushing and de-shedding pets can be an arduous task for some pet owners, and the makers of True Touch have a possible solution in this glove which acts as a brush and de-shedder. You simply slip on the glove and pet your cat or dog as you normally would. The 175 “grooming tips” gently brush hair and pull away loose fur. It’s a simple and clever design which should satisfy most pets who loathe being brushed.
The commercial shows pet hair easily being lifted away from the bristles. I found that to be the case with long-hair pets, such as my two golden retrievers and my cat. With my Chihuahua, however, the hair didn’t lift away as easily. I did find that slapping the glove on the ground, in the same manner I used to bang erasers when I was a kid, was pretty effective a removing small hairs.
I’ve seen several negative reviews for True Touch, but I actually found that it worked about as advertised. It didn’t remove as much hair as my regular grooming brush, but it did remove hair in a comfortable setting which felt like I was just petting my dogs and cat.
At a cost of $20 for two (when shipping is factored in), True Touch is competitively priced among similar pet gloves. It is even less expensive when you purchase it in stores for about $15, although you won’t get the bonus items when you buy it locally.
Overall, True Touch worked pretty well for me, especially for my larger pets with long hair. Smaller dogs with short hair may not benefit as much. If your pet is afraid of being brushed, this could be a compelling alternative.
Although True Touch sports what may seem like an innovative design to some viewers, pet gloves are actually quite common. A quick search of “pet brush glove” on Amazon yields dozens of similar products. Perhaps the closest competitor, which also sports a 5-finger design, is the HandsOn Pet Grooming Gloves, which hold an impressive 4.9 star rating and cost about $27 for two.
The product website is buytruetouch.com, which was registered in January 2016. The screen captures below show the official website in February 2016 and in March 2017. Note the change in the shipping cost.
Below is my review of True Touch on my four pets.
