Default What kind of Brush

HOLY COW. Belle is losing hair like crazy lol... I am assuming it is her "winter" coat coming out.

We gave her a bath today and so much hair came out it clogged up the tub lol. Then I brought her out and brushed her down with this rubber brush I have. I got about two handfuls of hair. Then when she was dry I did it again and got another two handfuls of hair. and she still has more to come out I can see it.

What kind of brush should I be using to most effectively help her get rid of this extra hair?

she is a short haired breed correct?
if i was you i would use the slicker on her
give her a warm bath, and use it again. the bath helps loosen hair, and the slicker is the best shedding tool for small breeds unless you get maybe a shedding brush, or something like a furminater de shedding tool

She has hair sort of like a lab.... it is short but thick. I will have to see if I can find my slicker brush and see how that does.

She had a warm bath today but there is still more hair left lol.

I think I know what the furminator is and I think they sell it for $35-$40 at the little pet store near us.... we will have to check that out

I bet a rubber horse curry comb will work just as well, if not better and it's a TON cheaper than a Furminator.

I am using a rubber curry comb. It just doesn't seem to be getting right down into her under coat..... either than or it is just going to take A LOT of brushing to get all the hair out and I just don't want to irritate her skin by brushing too much.

Using a Furmanater on it will get EVERYTHING out for you!

This works really well for me, but you have to use it outside. Fur goes flying eeeeverywhere. X3
