Default For those of us with dogs with bushy butts

What grooming tool(s) do you find the most effective to tackle the rear end of a dog with collie pants? Bandit has such a bushy butt. He doesn't get poo stuck on himself like my old Sheltie did thank goodness, but his arse hair does get knotted really easily. Is there some sort of detangler I can spray on before hand that will make it easier? Needless to say he isn't too fond of someone brushing through his thick butt hair when he's been out for a romp and it's gotten tangled.

Help us.

The Stuff, and this brush.

You can also take thinning shears to them and thin them out. Auggie has quite the pants going on and it looks dumb considering he is not very heavily coated anywhere else, so I thin them out a bit every few months to keep his overall level of floofiness consistent, LOL.

The papillons have bushy butts but since they're not double coated, they don't need any extra work. Now my shelties... I used an undercoat rake, comb, and thinning shears.

I use an undercoat rake on Chloe, then a slicker brush, then a comb...and once all of the tangles are out I have the groomer use a skip blade (I think that is what they are attachment that you put on clippers to just take some hair off, but not shave..?) down her back so she still has a fuzzy butt, just not so thick and wild. It is much more managable when it is shorter!

Thinning shears are your friend. It's kind of hard to explain how to use them without showing you on youtube for videos? Not sure.

At the store, I use a pin brush to get through the chunky undercoat, brush from the bottom up with a slicker brush, and go through it all with a comb (after the thinning shears).

I just use a snap on comb on my clippers and go through it. Not to short, but it helps, then I thin them out with my shears. His butt hair is thick troll like hair, does its own thing. Doesnt really mat just looks SO messy 99% of the time due to the troll type of hair as I call it lol.

My aussie has a definite fluffy butt I use thinning shears and an undercoat rake, and really thin her out,,then I clip her a "butt" so to speak..I swear it comes back thicker than ever tho ( Oh and I usually spray on a detangler, even tho thank goodness, she doesn't matt or tangle, just makes it easier to strip out..

I use a brush (pin brush?) on Sienna that's similar to the one I use on my own hair. I also got a detangling spray but I'm not sure how well it works. Anyone have recommendations?

And I admit, I do use clippers on her bum. Especially now that it's summer and our lawn is a forest of sticky burrs, I've been clipping her mane, tail, ears, and trim on her front legs as well. Not short, but she looks much tidier! And attracts less burrs...when she rolls around in the lawn. xD
