What do you all use? I'll admit, I take Tazzie to the groomers, so I've never really invested in a good brush, just use whatever I have to brush her in between groomings. But I want a nice brush. A good one that I can use on almost her whole coat. I don't want a different one for her ears, body, but feathers, etc. Does such a thing exist? That I can use everywhere?

I use a pin brush. I also have a slicker brush, but I find I can get through all of Quiz with just the pin brush.

I have a comb - and the only one I found that works - I don't know the name of it. It is shaped like the furminator - but the teeth are farther apart. Dusty has a very thick wavy coat and it's the only thing that works on him.

I just found one on that Cherrybrook site. It's called an undercoat rake. Awesome comb ! It probably doesn't work to get the top coat smooth and silky, but like I said - he has thick wavy fur - so I guess it would depend on what type of coat your dog has.

I ditto the Chris Christensen brushes. My most used brush is the 27MM Oblong Brass Fusion Brush. It feels wonderful brushing my own hair with it, ha! I also have the 27MM Oval Pin Brush and use it some. The comb I love is the Chris Christensen buttercomb all coarse teeth. However, don't get one of the colored buttercombs because they feel very rough on the ends.

I love their pin brushes. There is a good guide to which brush will be best for your needs. I will say that I now have the wooden pin brush and love it for use while blow drying.

During a moment of temporary insanity at Eukanuba, I bought the Chris wooden pin brush. It was $40. After walking away from the Cherrybrook booth I thought "am I nuts, I just spent $40 on a brush for Augie?" :doh:

Luckily, we both really like this brush. It just glides through his hair, gets the same amount of hair out as the regular cheapo pin brush but no pulling.

Great recommendation.

ok, so out of all the CC brushes, which one would work best? The 27MM pin brush? Exactly which one? Because there are several and I can't really tell what the difference is between the $50 one and the $22 one.
