Default What your favorite brush? Help!

We will bringing home our girl soon and there are just a couple things left on my list. I am an apprentice groomer, and only own basic slickers and combs, all PetEdge brand. These are great definitely for the price but with the dreaded puppy coat I would love a really nice slicker. What’s your favorite/recommended brushes and combs for poodle coat? Thank you ❤️❤️

If your pup still has a long puppy coat you'll need a good pin brush..........I have both a small Chris Christiansen brush, and a more economical Bass brush. On the longer than 1 inch poodle coat you need to get down to the skin to prevent matting. If you don't have one already I would recommend you get a copy of "Poodle Clipping and Grooming: The International Reference' by Shirlee Kalstone. It is an older book but is considered the 'bible' of poodle grooming.

A good metal comb with 'longer' teeth or a 'poodle comb' is also something to have on hand to 'check' your brushing for mats'...........

I have the Chris Christiansen coral big g slicker for my spoo. Might be too big for a mini or toy but it works great! It is extremely pricy though. I would recommend it if you are going to keep your dog in a show clip or an especially long trim. For the neck hair, topknot and ears I have a Madan pin brush - the dark green one. I also have a #1 all systems poodle comb but I'm sure any metal comb with wide spaces between the teeth will work.

I'm a pro groomer and have a show poodle. The Chris Christensen Coral slicker brush is the best brush ever. I have the smaller of the 2 sizes. On pet grooms I use it for the whole dog. For my show dog I use it for the body, then a madan pin brush for the topknot/neck/ears.
A metal comb is also key.

I love the density and length of pins on the coral as I am most worried about getting all the way to the skin. Seems like Chris Christensen is everyone’s #1! I have never owned a pin brush but I will now, haha. I have plenty of metal combs with different set teeth I was just wondering if there is any difference in quality brands. Thanks y’all!

Thank you for the recommendations! Unfortunately I have been mentoring under pet groomers that want nothing to do with creative grooming and show cuts, lol. They are the shave down with a ten and call it a day crowd. This book is exactly what I am looking for.

The Chris Christensen Slicker brush is the only brush that makes Lucky look fabulous. For practical purposes, I use a regular steel comb to make sure he has no tangles. I also need a dematter every once in a while.

Again the best purchase I've ever made was probably the CC Slicker Big K. It also helps that this is Lucky's favorite brush.

I also have the CC pin brush, CC t brush, and tiny CC slicker for the face. I don't feel any of these are particularly better than the cheaper brushes on the market but I've yet to find a slicker brush as good as the one from CC. I would recommend the coral one instead of the black one that I have because they are the same cost and the coral slicker has more pins.

I'm getting a minipoo in May and now I'm confused. I have a pin brush but nothing special and several combs, so I think I'm good with combs but I want to get the best I can for my little one. What size Chris Christensen slicker should I get for a minipoo and what size Madan pin brush? Nothing is too good for this little one! (

My favorite tool for brushing, is probably the CC butter comb. I couldn't live without it and use it 2-3x daily to line brush my coat-changing pup. If I had to pick just one item out of my stash, it'd be that.

I also have a few brushes, but not in love with any of them and could really do without them altogether... though the slicker does help me to straighten the shorter hair on my girl.
