Hi guys,

I just thought I'd let you know of a great place where I just got my Madan brushes from. toplinepet.com

Jenny has the best prices on the Madan brushes that I've seen anywhere on the web and her service is really quick and shipping charges are reasonable.
Not that I am trying to enable anyone, but if you want a great brush you've got to try Madan. I've tried CC pin brush with regular, gold and anti-static pins. I've tried Greyhound brushes and they don't even come close. You also can't use the wooden brushes on wet hair (so I've been told). These guys are plastic and durable and are not afraid of water. I've used my current brush for over a year and it's like new.

Sorry to ramble on, but I just love a great deal. lol

I think shape has nothing to do with it and is personal preference. The difference is that different color has different firmness to it. Depending on how thick and coarse the hair is, I would probably go with black brush/black cushion or black brush/red cushion (the firmest).

Madan brushes are the best to use for poodle show coats. But depending on what color you buy.

They come in various colors and I prefer to get the softer pins that bend easily, they will never break coat. So the softer the better to maintain coat without breaking it when brushing dog out or blow drying him.

In Cda. at dog show venues they cost circa $25.00 plus tax (15%)

Going to look now at the site which you say sells them cheap.

Olie:

Another great pin brush I have also been using which is indestructible is made by VELLUS, not to mention their products which are expensive but excellent for growing/maintaining poodle coat. A gallon of shampoo costs $95.00 and so does the conditioner and they are both awsome, as well as the Satin cream... The latter is wonderful for top knots and prevents breakage.

I recently started using Ile Of Dogs,,, AMAZING shampoo and conditioner.

Olie & Faerie:

If you do show coats than the Mandan SOFT pins pin brush is the best as it would not break coat.
But if you do pets and want to brush them out in case they have longer than usual coats then use the harder pins.. It will be better, since you dont have to treat the coat with TLC and can either slicker it or use the brush with the more rigid pins.

i have a pet who is spayed. i'm not trying to put her in a show coat at all ... way too much work. i like her having a longer topknot & her jacket which is short, but nothing like a show coat.

In this case than the brush (black) is the best if you only are keeping a semi long top knot.

I ordered the black one and I think this would be fine for standards and minis

I also ordered the soft brush in purple for more careful brushing

Olie:

Most handlers use these brushes and swear by them.. They are not as expensive as some other brands and are very light in weight and do a great job.

This is the brush Jenn used for Cole during his show career.

Let me know if you like it. Love mine.

Wow, I had my brushes by noon today, and they are great! I am so glad I got a softer one and the black one.
