Comes complete with a Coat Guide so you can be sure this brush is the right one for you. Please check the breeds on the photo guide to see if this is suitable for your dog.
To use the slicker, slowly and gently brush the hair in the direction of the fur growth. The bendy pins will pull away loose hairs hair leaving a smooth and neat coat. If your dog is comfortable with the slicker, press gently on the tool to remove more fur from the undercoat. The pins of the slicker are bendy to prevent discomfort, however, do not press them into your dog's skin. To remove a tangle, isolate the fur and gently pull the slicker through the tangle, starting from the outside and working in as the fur de-tangles. To ensure your dog has an enjoyable grooming session, start gently. Pause or end the grooming session if your dog becomes agitated.

Grooming tips: Grooming is a wonderful way to bond with your dog, but dogs that are new to grooming should be introduced to it slowly. Begin grooming sessions when your dog is relaxed, if possible, after they have exercised. Use tools gently and avoid tugging on the skin or on knots or mats. Give your dog plenty of reassurance throughout the grooming session. Pause or end the grooming session if your dog becomes agitated or shows signs of stress. Keep grooming sessions brief to begin with, and increase the length of the sessions as your dog becomes used to grooming.
