FURminator Soft Slicker Brush For Dogs
Best thing ever.
I just had to tell you how wonderful the slicker brush is. My dog is a Shipoo and has a coat that constantly gets knots all over her body. She does not like being groomed and cries like a baby when I try to comb her. so I end up cutting out the knots. She looks like a mess.
I brushed her with the Furminator SLlcker when it arrived and I could not believe how great it worked. She let me brush her as I normally try to do, and all the mats and knots came out immediately with me using a gentle stroke. I have used the regular Furminator that cuts out the knots and mats but she doesn't like that. WIth this sSlicker there was no tugging of the fur and no crying from either of us.. She sat still and in around a minute or two I was able to brush her whole coat. She weighs 12
lbs. just to give you an idea of her size. Her coat was mat and knot free. It is so easy to use that I will use it every day now Her coat should grow out to a nice length so I should be able to give her a nice
trim. I can not say enough about the brush. I used the angled bristles first and then went over hre coat with the straight side.

Excellent quality and value
I am a breeder of the Bolognese breed, and their coats are extremely challenging to keep from matting. This new flexible slicker is a huge improvement over the old slickers. Very little tugging on the coats of the dogs, which keeps them more calm, and the flex feature also helps the groomer from getting "wrist fatigue".

Very good slicker brush
Although I was expecting something revolutionary being that it was from the FURminator people, it seems to just be a very good slicker brush that is 2 sided and comes with a case. I bought it for a golden retriever/chow mix and it does work fine but it didn't have her or me doing backflips. It is definitely a softer bristle which she does like and it does flow smoothly through her hair. If you need a slicker brush, you should give this one a try.

Pretty good brush
I have 2 dogs, a labradoodle and a shih-tzu/terrier mix. This brush does well on both dogs. It glides through their coat, and doesn't yank, pull, or snag.
I do find it hard to clean and the "pins" of the brush are quite sharp. I accidentally pricked my finger while cleaning it out. The protective case doesn't stay together and really doesn't fit on the brush. I bought it on sale and it was worth the price.

The bristles are too sharp
I'm not in love with this product as if you brush and accidentally hit your own hand, it's too sharp and can hurt the brusher. We ended up going with a different brush with more blunted spokes.

Very Nice Brush
Really like this brush, it works great on our Multi-poo, Bear. We groom him ourselves and it is a must to get out his knots so we don't have to shave him bald. The brush is able to comb out most of his stubborn snarls with ease. A must for the groom bag!
