I use an under coat rake followed by a slicker. The undercoat rake is just a dozen or so heavy steel blunt tines that works well to pull out the loose undercoat.

This will hopefully give you an idea--I have a stainless steel, heavy duty, "greyhound" comb--I believe it is called a greyhound comb. One side has fine teeth, one, not so fine. I've attached a photo for you.

I use the Belgium Greyhound combs. I have 2 of them and if I could put a LoJack or something on them I would - the original Greyhound comb is very hard to find. I love the way they are weighted/balanced, and they have a round spine. Chris Christensen also makes very nice metal combs, I have one of his #000's and a #006, as well.

I use an old Greyhound comb, similiar to the one illustrated, and a nice pin brush (#1 All Systems). Slickers aren't the best if you are looking to maintain a show coat.

Ooohh... "an old Greyhound comb"... don't you love them? If anyone "borrows" one of mine my palms sweat until it's back in my tack box! :uhoh:

I know-this comb does not leave my house! I also love my 34-year old Dubl Duck scissors-I know they won't last much longer but they are wonderful :)

A tip - be careful with brand new metal combs, especially the ones at the lower end of the price scale - the times of the comb can be rough or sharp and damage the skin. I actually take my new ones and run them back and forth across my grooming table a few times to sort of "wear them down" a bit.

The wider spaced teeth are better for the first time over the coat, to loosen up any tangles in the coat as you work them out, then the fine tooth coat to finish the job. You want to work the comb through to the skin, so the fine tooth would usually get snagged on the first few passes. It is the best though, for getting the job done!
