To preserve hair and deal with mats (besides brushing daily) what tools do you use to rid the coat of mats without shaving?
HA we have eternally dogs chewing on each other even though we are growing coat we have mats to deal with We bath once a week and use the chris christnesen slicker as well as a comb and plush puppy OMGA good ol comb and slicker brush. ^^ Though for dogs for show and whatnot, I'm sure they use some sort of product. =/ No idea if they do or what it is though. At work I use a mat cutting comb, but it cuts the mats out, so if you're growing coat it's best to keep the hair in condition before mats even start.
All Systems #1 You want a pin brush with no balls and one that has relatively flexable pins that bend a bit.What sort of pin brush do you use cbrand? I hear the ones with the bobbles at the end of the teeth break hair, but I'm having troubles finding ones without it. I found one at a dollar store, but MAN does it make hair go staticy.
I tried one once on a cut down dog and it seemed like it pulled a ton of coat out. When people use this brush, do they find a lot of hair in it?Cbrand have you tried the les pooch brush ?
