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.

Hi all, so I've noticed that when I'm brishing Miya with the undercoat rake it will leave lines in her fur only on her back legs cant really get them to go away with a slicker brush either anyone have any ideas?

I wouldn't worry about it to be honest, it's not effecting the coat negatively and her fur will eventually go back to normal. - when you brush with the slicker are you brushing downwards or are you stroking her fur the same direction as you are with the undercoat rake?

I'm not sure on the brand, they were from petco, so maybe petco has its own line seem decent though. I've heard of em but not sure what's great about them?

Okami gets lines from the rake too... I think it is just a thing it does.... But I do get them to get out in that same brushing with this (couldn't find a picture of one similar enough on google lol)






Okami has always hated being brushed, but she sits through it like a trooper, and when I pull out that brush she seems a little less annoyed than with my other tools, because it probably feels closer to me petting her with the motion of my hand/arm with it.

I don't remember, I got it when Okami was a pup in our department store Meijer's dog section... I think it was Meijer brand as well... Did a little search on Amazon, found one that is almost perfectly similar
