We tried 5 different grooming/dematting tools for our dog. She's a doodle with thick, curly fur, and it's hard to keep her fur brushed out. This one is amazing. The real deal. My dog doesn't mind it very much, it doesn't pull/snag/get stuck, it moves through her fur, is easy to hold, and can get out the toughest mats. Highly, highly recommend.
We’re experienced pet owners but new to the Labradoodle breed (needed a hypoallergenic dog) and didn’t understand the multiple layers of fur. This helps keep them fluffy, removes all the grass and gets the base hair out. I wish I’d understood the importance of this tool earlier! It’s a must for a doodle parent. Start using after a groom when the hair is shorter, it makes it painless. We alternate between this and a slicker brush every other day. We have a tight curl coated boy and a crazy wavy coat girl. This is the BOMB! Way nicer than the other two I bought that became chew toys.
My previous, very old, and dull demattting rake still works better than this one?!?!?!? I was surprised and very disappointed. Have to keep looking now.
I don't necessarily understand the mechanics behind the teeth, and don't want to test for myself how sharp they may be lol, but I feel more secure handling this one and the kitties don't mind at all!
I have a long haired GSD so brushing his bloomers has always been a challenge. This tool works great for that. Even thought it is a "debater" for long, corse, thick hair it works great to thin out and detangle and brush.
This tool is fantastic for my English cream retriever. It fluffs up the fur on her hind legs and gets out all of the matted fur she creates from swimming. I also like the way the handle is attached. It makes it easier to brush her from any angle.
Scary looking tool. Maybe the girls will grow o to it. Should have bought the smaller one.
This tool is awful because it pulls at my dog’s fur:( Do not recommend for long haired breeds!
Superb Dematting Rake. Pulls loose undercoat gently and leaves coat smooth and easy to do comb throughs
This brush will do the hard work of getting some really bad knots out of your dogs hair. Our Great Pyrenees didn’t complain either when I was brushing him with it. Overall, tough, good brush that is pretty sharp, but it will do the work.
