Default Brush for short hair?

What kind of brush should I use for Hank? He's shedding like crazy and I have no idea what type of brush would help. Never had a short haired dog before.

Zoom Groom? I've heard good things with short haired dogs.

Yep - Zoom Groom or a rubber curry brush.

Steal a child's sized rubber curry from one of your horse-addicted family members. Or, I guess, go spend $1.00 on one. They are fabulous, and both of my dogs love being groomed with them.

ditto on the rubber. I tried furminator type brushes marketed for short haired dogs (borrowed from a friend) and Hugo HATED them. I think his coat is too short and it irritated his skin. He loves the rubber curry brushes- we use "four paws" brand and I think it was literally $2.

See, I hated the zoom groom. Much preferred the metal shedding rakes (like a metal curry comb).

For a short haired dog? I could use those on dogs like labs, shepherds, and other thicker coated short haired dogs, but for me they would do pretty much nothing on a smooth coat like a Dane, weim, boxer, etc

Yup, even for short haired. Maybe not like Dachshund smooth, but I've used it on coats like...a Dalmation, or "single" coated Lab with good success.
