ConairPRO Soft Slicker Brushes Small Slicker
Love this brush!
I love, love, love this brush by ConairPro! I have an aussiedoodle and I do my own grooming. I have been on the search for a "better brush" for quite some time, and I was very close to spending over $50. on a brush when I came across this one and thought I'd give the medium size a try. The problem that I have is that no matter how much I vow to be more diligent, I can't seem to do a full, thorough grooming more than once a week and that's just enough time for matts to begin to form. Each weekend, I find myself cutting through the matts and trying to gently comb them out before Gracie loses her patient attitude and wants nothing more than to jump off the table. I like to keep Gracie's body hair a little on the long side during the winter months, (and I always keep her leg hair long) but have found that I can only let it get so long before I end up cutting her back down to about an inch or so due to tiny little matts getting the better of me. In the past, I have stayed away from slicker brushes because I don't want to hurt her. I find that no matter how careful I am, I still touch her skin with the tips every so often and based on personal experience, I know it hurts and they can easily draw blood! This brush has soft tips at the end of each wire so no more worries! It used to be that I would groom a little on Sat. and then again on Sun. to cut down on the time that Gracie had to stand on the table and even then I would end up leaving some of the matts. Now I find that I can do a full grooming in one session in less than half the time it used to take. About the time that Gracie starts getting antsy is about the time that I am finished, and I end up with a very soft, fluffy, matt-free, happy dog! I am extremely happy with this brush and I very much recommend it!!
