I got a Show Tech slicker when I first got Misha, and later a Safari coated pin slicker to help with his sensitive legs. I finally splurged and decided to try out the CC Coral Slicker. But I'm wondering if I'm missing something. I've always heard that the pins are not sharp and they're not painful, but I'm afraid it might actually be more pricky than my Show Tech. When I compare them, it has thicker, longer pins, and they have more of a back curve to them. It does seem more sturdy and does a better job with the longer spots like his topknot and tail. But I find it too pricky to do anywhere without long fur. He is much more tolerant of the Safari brush on his back and legs. Do I just need to save the coral for the longer spots? Or am I brushing in a way that's causing pain when I shouldn't? I've tried just brushing very softly and trying to not put pressure on the skin. But it doesn't help much. He is an especially sensitive dog.
