Rake for matted hair is helpful
I have always been afraid to try a rake on my sensitive dog because others have had razor blades in them, I shied away from trying them. I used this JW Pet Gripsoft Dematting Rake as instructed, keeping it at the correct angle away from my dogs skin, and did not dig into the matts, just gently eased the rake in a little at a time and wiggle it cutting through the matted hair. Along with my steel comb and dog brush this was a helpful tool to add to my grooming kit. Thanks.

Great for mats!
I have a Cocker Spaniel whose skirt mats easily. Of course, he doesn't enjoy having mats removed from his skirt and I don't like cutting them out which leaves his coat looking choppy. This rake works very well, but BE CAREFUL! Read the directions before using and be sure to hold the rake away from the skin as directed. The blades are very sharp and can hurt your pet more than the mats. As long as it is used correctly, there is little pulling and my dog doesn't mind when I use it to remove the mats.

very good grip and works well
When I saw this product. I had doubts. My dogs are long coat German Shepherds. I decided to use this and was very happy with results. There was no pulling to the skin, and it took care of all the mats after getting their baths. I think I will throw away the old one. thank you

I was wrong; I thought it wouldn't work.
I have two standard poodles in which I let their coats grow out in the winter time. Their hair gets matted very quickly unless brushed every day, especially if it is bitter cold out and I use a winter coat for long extended walks. I bought the JW Dematting Rake despite my first impression that it wouldn't work; the price was too low for a tool that would work and I couldn't find any good video reviews or written reviews that it would work on standard poodles.
I was wrong.
It works very well and the dogs like it compared to other brushes and dematting tools that I have used in the past. They try to nudge each other to be first to get brushed, instead of running away after two minutes of brushing.
I recommend this "rake" to anybody with a dog with long hair. The only tools that I need for brushing are the rake, a slicker or ball pin type brush and possibly some FURminator DeTangling Waterless Spray. The other tools I used in the past can now be donated to the animal shelter.

Best tool out there for untangling our poodle.
We've tried many different tools to manage our "casual" styled poodle. This works easily without snagging, pulling, or scratching.
We use this tool first and finish up with a simple comb.
