Default Looking for brush recommendations

Tucker has been shedding pretty bad lately and mom said between him and the two cats her allergies are starting to bother her a lot. Tucker has the standard double sided brush, pins brush on one side, soft bristles on the other. It takes out some of his hair but not a ton. So I was wondering if anyone could recommend a type of brush for his type of coat. It's not short enough to use the cats' rubber brush on, but it's not exactly long either see:


I wanted a furminator but I'm not going to spend almost $40 on a brush. So any ideas?

Well, I managed to get a two pack off amazon for about 20 dollars, so 10 dollars each.

So you might be able to find it cheaper if you look

Ah, I was just looking at petco/petsmart, didn't think to try places like Amazon. Thanks for the heads up!

I have a shedding brush for Rosey that I love. It is a black rectangle... and has lots of fine pins on it... no idea what it is actually called, it may actually be a shedding brush LOL

Yes, this was pretty much useless and not helpful

ETA I found it! It is called a slicker brush, and looks like this. Although apparently it is for longer haired dogs...

Slicker brush. Use it for both the dogs and the cat.

And I tried the furminator since my friend had one... I wasn't impressed. Only got as much as the slicker did and it went EVERYWHERE instead of being neatly contained in the slicker brush. Plus it is really harsh on the hair.

Thanks for the recommendation, maybe I'll go for a slicker brush then. Do you think it'll work well for his length hair or is it better just for long haired dogs?

Well I use it on my short haired cat too, so I think it'd work for you.

I really need to invest in an undercoat rake one of these days...
