Rated 5 out of 5 by 2redPoodles 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fido11 This product is too big
It's not at all productive it's big and awkward to use in no way is it effective in getting the mats behind my dog's ears

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barb The product is great
The item does the job of getting the tangles out, and it works on the knots also

Rated 2 out of 5 by jkeller19 Matting rake
I would not recommend this product. Very hard to handle. Tines to large to fit behind my dogs ears.

This dematting rake was the best money I've spent!! I have a husky and he has a thick coat and it was forever getting matted and when I say, this rake worked like a charm, that is an understatement!! I thank you and Kingdom thanks you too Chewy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SheltiePerson Great for double coated breeds
Saw this tool being used in a Sheltie grooming video.
I had just groomed my Shelties the night before the dematting rake arrived in the mail and thought I had done a thorough job, but I was surprised at how much more undercoat I was able to remove with this tool. Glad I bought it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pearl Blades were dull
I am returning these since the blades were duller than the ones on my Safari dematting comb that I've been using for more than a year.
