    Default Mars Coat King

    I'm thinking of getting one of these for Jenna. I have a furminator which does get alot of fur off her but I just feel her coat is too thick for the very fine blades to really get to the undercoat and have been reading that the Mars CK is better for longer haired dogs.

    Does anyone here use one? I'm a little baffled by all the different sizes and # blades. Would anyone have any idea what size to use on Jenna? I would describe her coat as mostly Golden Retriever but bushier, especially around the neck, that's where the Samoyed in her definitely shows.

    It looks like Jenna's fur may get tangled in those blades. I'm just waiting for this rib to heal & then I'm going to take Hippo up on her offer of bringing her Furminator round to my house to compare with my current groomer. I'll post those results & then I suppose we'll see what people have to say about that Mars thing.

    They are used extensively on breeds such as setters, cockers and the like. The longer teeth are for the feathering on these breeds and the short teeth are for along their backs.

    In the ring we take their coats back a fair way.

    To be honest I'm not sure how'd they'd go on the husky type coat.

    I do know this make sure you get the genuine King brand, others are useless. I've had mine now for 4 years, also good for getting our knots under armpits etc or stripping the dead coat which is very noticeable on the setter because it gets a rusty tinge to it.

    Probably worth contacting the distributor and asking how they think it will work on your dogs coat.

    Remember that the insulating properties of coats work both ways.

    Just re-read your post and taken another look at Jenna's coat more GR type of coat so it's possible. But the setter doesn't have a double coat so I can't really comment. It peels away the longer feathering and the short one takes away the curls on her back and head.

    Just wanted to add a couple of photos to give an idea of her coat.
