    Default Long Haired Dog Owners

    what kind of brush do you use?


    soon jarrah will start her annual mault. While this happens I brush her twice a day, the first time for over an hour usually as her coat is so thick it takes ages to get thru it all. We can get enough hair of her to stuff a matress in summer LOL. We use a wire brush but it is full after two strokes, another reason it takes ages to brush her.

    Is there a better brush to use?

    A Groomer's brush?

    You can get a rake type which will remove undercoat. I have a good one with spinning teeth which is great for undercoat. If you don't know what that is let me know and I'll take a picture of it. It's sort of like a long toothed comb but easier to use.

    I haven't tried a furminator (not suited to my breed's coat but could be for yours) but they get rave reviews.

    A slicker won't get through to the undercoat, which can then mat up. You'll need to comb it out.

    I only use pin brushes on dry coat. If they are losing lots of undercoat you can use a comb or rake to pull the hair out of the pin brush after each stroke.

    If her coat is really thick you may need to lift it with your hand and brush it down in layers so you know you're getting it all underneath.

    Thanks All. Under her coat is felt and that is what first comes away when the weather warms. It is really important to brush this out as it mats easily, nattylou yours sounds perfect woould you please post a pic of it?

    Thanks again

    This is mine (excuse the small bits of rust - I use it when they're wet in the bath!). The individual teeth spin so they don't get stuck and pull so much:



    I think they are the same as ones on this site, who also have lots of great stuff - especially brushes. Don't mind the scarily expensive ones, they get cheaper as you go down the pages....

    I use Mars Coat King for 2 of mine who have triple coats. It is excellent.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    I have a furminator and it works great - dont have to brush the dogs for two months after i use it - but it strips coat. Dogs wont talk to me after theyre furminated either!!
