Excuse my ignorance...I am new to poodles, but I was wondering what combs are necessary for. I have always used a slicker and haven't found the need for anything else. I just ordered a Les Poochs slicker ( got a deal on ebay) and am looking forward to trying that. Is there anything else I am missing out on that could make my grooming experiences better? What do I REALLY need? Also, has anyone ever tried a shampoo and conditioner in one to save a step when bathing? Thanks in advance! You guys ahve been a great help to me!
