    Default Suggestion on brushes?

    Its probably been asked, but figured you guys wouldn't care.

    What type of brushes are best for grooming Pyr's? Mine is starting to get tangled and the brushes I have aren't really doing a good job overall.

    Thanks

    I use that to help with undercoat, and a slicker to remove mats. I can't find the one I have right at the moment, but its an extra large slicker for dogs with long coats.

    Buy yourself a slicker brush, metal tooth comb (aka greyhound comb or poodle comb), double undercoat rake and a dematter if you are starting to get tangles already. Those are what I use on all double coated long haired dogs.

    Master Grooming Tools Flexible Slicker Brushes

    this is my favorite along with the ones that Tsuni recommended

    get the teal one....the "bent" side helps with mats, the other side is a typical slicker brush

    Ok so I just snapped my slicker brush handle, and am ordering the one Nancy suggested. For a dematter do you mean something like this one?

    That one works, but I feel like it is more likely to hurt the dog if not used properly.

    I prefer this style cause all it does is break the hair apart and then you can use your slicker brush and comb to finish it off.

    Love this undercoat rake and use on several of my pups, I like the rounded blades so it doesn't irritate the skin. For mats, a greyhound comb works great to lift the mat and seperate it from the skin and then use thinning shears to remove the mat.

    interesting discussion... My grooming solution is to brush mine with a slicker... every day... for about 5 minutes. It's part of our evening pre-walk prep. He thinks it's a game (unfortunately), as he gets very mouthy. My Wiley is 2-1/2 years old. I take him to the groomer once a month. His groomer always comments that his coat is in good shape... no mats. I have a metal comb, which I've used on occasion... but for the most part, I stick with the slicker. I asked if I should get an undercoat rake, but he didn't seem to think it was necessary.
