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.

Be careful... those brushes aren't very good for double coated breeds. They cut or razor the guard hairs, wrecking the coat.

A good undercoat rake is best.

I only glide it over the top not digging in.

He seems to like it.
if I brush him normally and hairs are being ripped out due to something sticky on him he will shriek and let me know.

Even a light brushing with it will cut the guard hairs on the top layer.

The primary goal of when brushing a husky is to get the dead undercoat out and this is best done with a rake, not something that cuts like a Furminator.

I'm not saying don't use it but you should be informed, at least.

Oh man, that's good to know. I had been using a furminator. I'm assuming you mean something like this instead?

@karu4link that was my next option. are those advised people?

I do however have a straight edge rake constant brushing has still meant constant hair falling out.

the furminator has seemed to do what i wanted it too I can run my hands through his coat now and for the first time ever i have no hairs on my hand.

I will be ultra cautious to not overdo it.
I probably won't use the furminator for at least a few months.

Thanks for the heads up as i would have probably kept using it.

That one looks more complex than needed. Something like this is simpler and effective.
