Default What types of brushes do you use?

Riot gets line brushed with a metal comb with the narrow pins to wide pins.

Then he gets brushed with a pin brush. He can't use a slicker brush on his coat due to the fact that that sort of brush ruins it.

At shows he gets Kolestoral in his coat as well as bodifier.

I don't know "dog brush names", but I've got one with bristles, nice and soft, one with firmer bristles (to brush out dried dirt/mud) and one with metal thingys with rubber on teh ends, i use after baths and sprays, so it can sink down to their skin.

Tango gets brushed with the following:

- Pin brush (only for her tail - it doesn't seem to do much for her body)

- Metal combo comb - wide teeth on one side, narrow on the other (for her entire body)

- Slicker Brush (only during the sprind when she's blowing her coat and in thw winter when she actually has some coat - the rest of the year she barely has any undercoat)

I think thats all I use as far as brushing goes, but I could be forgetting something.

Winston & Tia are brushed with a rubber hound glove. Morgan is brushed with the metal combo comb, the slicker brush, and sometimes the Zoom Groom. I always use the Zoom Groom on each dog during their baths as it gets tons of hair out and gives them somewhat of a massage. I don't find it does much of anything when their coats are dry though.

I think its just my dogs' coat types. I've used my Zoom Groom on a friends German Shepherd before and it worked extremely well for her, but on my dogs it doesn't do much at all. I used it on all of my past Rottweilers aswell with success, so once Morgan gets all of her coat in maybe it'll work better.

Can the slicker brush really mess up a coat? Im using a slicker brush on Lizzie and I thought it worked wonders but I wouldnt want to use it if it is going to mess up her coat

I use a big human paddle brush first to get the coat surface knot free then go through with the soft tip metal fine toothed comb. I hate slicker brushes and pin brushes, I think they're to hard on a dogs skin. I'm a freak about my dogs coats, they've never known even a small mat and they really enjoy their daily grooming sessions. Sophie takes 40+ minutes every second day...

slicker brushes can damage coats on certain breeds. On a Belgian its NOT to be used b/c it can break their guard hairs causing a frizzy look.

We have used slickers on our Shelties and they do fine with them. Its just different coat density.

I'd switch to a pin brush though. They are amazing. Dont get a pin brush that is round though, get one that is rectangle. They work best I have found.

I use a metal comb on both boys, in fact most of the time that is all I use. Sometimes for Dakota I use a slicker brush and I also use a shedding blade when he's blowing coat. I use a small pin brush and a small bristle brush for Ripley, but only after he gets a bath.
