Bristle Brush: This brush is suitable for all coat types

Wire-Pin Brush: This brush style works well with wooly coats that are medium to long and have a curly texture.

Slicker Brush: A slicker brush with fine wire bristles is useful for eliminating mats and knots.

Combs: For dogs with short hair, rubber curry combs can massage the skin and remove dead hair.

Select a tool for shedding.

Whether your pet sheds intermittently or continuously, using a shedding tool to remove dead hair from your pet’s coat. Brushes with closely spaced stainless steel tines that remove the undercoat are one type of shedding tool. Shedding blades with serrated teeth are another.
