Ok the first one is working for me, but the second one isn't.

That's a lot of fur! I like this shedding blade like brush for my Malamute.
Here's a link:

At first glance, it looks like she tore up a pillow! I don't have any advice. Your lawn looks like you almost need to vacuum it instead of mowing. She's a beautiful dog.

Babyblue is right. That's a great brush to use for shedders.

I can't see either picture, but I can picture it in my mind! All that undercoat, huh! You need a rake. And go against the grain to pull it out then with the grain to lay the hair back down. Do you know what I'm talking about? I can find a link if you don't. You need to do this lots during shedding season especially because you don't want to aggrevate your dog or make him hurt.

When I groom my samoyeds and don't feel like turning on a blower I use an under coat rake it is fabulous. I find the shedding blades are not long enough.

My Bear had an Akita undercoat, but he hated the rakes. I found a regular vent brush with the rounded tips did a good job and he didn't mind it. I ended up using one on O'Reilly, our Australian Shepherd, as well.
