Looking for a good brush

Now that Bogey's shedding is out of control, I'd like to find a nice brush for everyday use. We have one, but he has outgrown it. Can anyone recommend a good one?

We already have a furminator, so no need to recommend that. But I have a really hard time using it.

I agree...I have a large furminator, but it is hard to use on Ollie. I feel like I might get too much fur out of him. I love using it on Daisy (lab-mix) because her fur is a lot coarser and short.

I use a regular brush on Ollie...don't know how to call it. The one with two different sides. It works pretty well if I don't forget to brush him for a couple days...they are shedding like crazy right now aren't they!

A really good all purpose brush to help remove dead coat, and even debris from a dirty coat is a universal slicker. The curved pad makes it easy and comfortable to use.

I used to brush Sam every other day and he loved it. Ike doesn't care to be brushed. He doesn't like to hold still for it.

Ollie doesn't sit still either while I try to brush him...I'm hoping he'll get used to it soon. He still tries to bite the brush..maybe he is still too young? Yes, Cody was like Sam. He closed his eyes and enjoyed his "brush-brush" time
