Best all purpose brush

What is the best kind of brush to have on hand just for every day brushing? Like, to get dirt out, or that lovely dried spit from where they were wrestling?

our everyday brush (we have several-one in the car, one on the deck, & one in the grooming box) is a pin brush with bristles on one side. it works great for a quick detangling after a swim & the bristle side is nice for caked on mud!

like this one...

For that type of work I use a bent wire slicker brush on the boys. I also keep several so I have one at hand when the boys come in caked with mud. My number two tool is an undercoat rake with the stiff teeth for getting the undercoat and mats out.

Pin brush for daily stuff... wire slicker for finishing work.

Ditto.

I've got a pin cushion brusg also, but it doesn't get hold of that soft undercoat nearly as much as the slicker or comb.

Zoom groom made by Kong. Max uses it as a chew toy when I'm brushing him with another brush, so it's pretty indestructible, and it does the job. Plus, it's pretty cheap!
