Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I would like to know pros and cons for using this rake on huskies. In the video it seems to work pretty good at removing the fur but I'm not sure if it's bad for the longer fur (top coat?). Any feedback would be appreciated before I invest in this tool! Thanks!

Hi Welcome! Smile Here is a great thread that covers grooming a siberian. I use a rake and it works great. It doesn't cause damage to the top coat. Smile

Just to comment on that video. I wish Mishka would be like that when I brush him. Lol. He hates being brushed. D:

Much appreciated, I read that post you linked before I posted my video. I wasn't really asking for advice on what was talked about on that post, but wanted to know more about the specific style in this video. It appears to work pretty good but I wanted some first hand response from everyone.

I've used one of these brushes before and they are fantastic. But though I do believe they cut out some sort of the top coat. I tried to find some stuff about it online but it's kind of back and forth. It's official name is a shedding blade, we use them on horses all the time. From my experience with them they did work out fantastic on getting undercoat out, but there were still guard hairs in it too. But I still can't find out if the area between the teeth are actually blade like and cutting the hair like the furminator does or it's just the prongs that pull the hair out. If no one else responds back here, I would just try to find out as much as you can online about it and then make a decision from there.
