I have no doubt this rake works like a dream. HOWEVER, there should be a guard on these VERY SHARP BLADES as they're more like knives. And a warning! I started to de-fluff my rough collie puppy with my new rake. One stroke and my thumb was bleeding where it was sliced by three of the blades. Now, this is partly on me. I'm an experienced pet owner and have handled many sharp grooming tools. I'm very careful and should have looked at the tool more thoroughly before using it. But, there was nothing protecting what turned out to be razor-like blades. Neither is there any warning on packaging or in the instructions to give this new user a heads-up. There are descriptions using "cut" and a couple other terms. But, I was thinking "rake" - like leaf rake - not "slicer" in the kitchen. Thank goodness I don't have children in the house! Nor did my puppy try to chew on this tool. Again, this tool probably works very well once you've been educated. I'm not sure I want to keep this around without proper safeguards and definitely won't use it until the pup is more mature/calm. Chewy/Manufacturer - please consider the safety of your customers and label this product appropriately. And, please design a safeguard cover so that unsuspecting children/dogs don't get hurt!
This is hands-down the best dematting grooming tool that I have ever used on my rough Collie! It works very gently and is also great for getting out his undercoat. This is honestly a must-have item for any rough Collie owner, and I’m sure it works just as well for all other long-haired and undercoat-heavy breeds.
I used this on a matted German Shepherd with great results!
The prongs are too long for use on my cat. I couldn't see that from the picture when I ordered it. It would work better on a very long haired dog or maybe cat.
i didn’t realize this was huge. my bad. i have a puppy now, mini schnauzer, and this is far too big. will donate it to someone local. would be great for a big furry dog.
Best money I have ever spent for everyday care of my Goldendoodle. It got out EVERY single mat he had, including some pretty intimidating ones on his sensitive tail. I rewarded his patience with lots of treats. Dog parents—be sure to not go at it like a regular brush or you could pierce the skin, hold at a slight angle. I simply cannot believe it works! I was preparing to apologize profusely to our groomer, but this solved the problem.
I have been trying to find a good demat brush for my huskies and saint bernard mix that doesn't pull at their fur and this works like a dream! No hair pulling at all and all of my dogs let me freely brush them with this one! I highly recommend!
Not what I expected. But could work for some dogs.
I use this to thin and shorten my horses mane. She won't let me pull it but this leaves it looking natural and not too thick.
I bought this as it was the only rake brush that was not sold out. Now I see why. It is SO sharp, I used it on my Aussie, who did not seem to mind it, but in the process of brushing I cut myself on one of the blades. If I can cut my own skin it makes me not want to use it on my dog. Will be chucking this brush and trying to find a better one.
