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.

Do a search for furminator on here. I believe members have mixed reviews (I don't use it) due to it cutting the coat..

Personally I just brush or use a wide toothed comb and pull the tufts of fur as they appear.

I don't like the furminator brush but as far as brushing goes..I use a angled wire slicker brush. I brush my boy every other day, religiously for about 15-20 minutes. A little bit everywhere, I spend the most time in the thigh area.

me too, i brush Leo for about 10-20 minutes every day if he looks like he needs it or every few of days. i usually feel for the fur to be soft and not to mush fur comes out when your brushing. i use a jw undercoat rake brush and comb. i use the furminator  to collect any loose fur that's left on him.

We brush every day using an undercoat rake and a comb-never a FUrminator. I go all over until I'm sure there are no matts hiding. We usually do short sessions, just 20 minutes at a time.

I don't think you can brush "too much" with a northern breed. You can brush all day and hair will keep coming Smile

I used to used the Furminator on my previous Husky, it does get rid of the hair but it also cuts to close to the skin. The breeder recommends a slicker brush or JW's two size wire comb that I bought. It has 2 different lengths and apparently works amazing. http://www.amazon.com/JW-Pet-Company-GripSoft-Shedding/dp/B0002AQQ0G

The things you need to be aware of if you brush to often and to hard you can irritate the skin and get what groomers call brush burn. This is more an issue if you push hard or brush for a really long time.
But a little bit every day is fine. I keep an eye on Simon's pants(back of his back legs) they gett a little bunchy if it's been to long and then I make a point to brush him.
But Simon also gets a full groom every 2 months.
