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.

We have added another tool to our collection which is invaluable.

Grooming comb

We use the coarser side first and then switch to the finer side once it's combing nicely and easily. Does great work on the pants region as well as the tails.

AND it's the number-one seller on Amazon, AND it's just under $6.25! Thanks for the tip!

When I went to get brushes for Ripley (could not for the life of me find the slicker brush we had for a long haired cat we used to have), I asked the clerk for an undercoat rake & she tried to convince me that I'd be better off with a comb & a furminator!  I told her I wanted an undercoat rake & a slicker.  The response I got was pretty much along the lines of that the rake was an over priced item that a comb can do just as good of a job.  That a slicker would scrape the poor pup's tender skin & since they shed so much, a furminator would be a great investment.

So I grabbed the coarse comb & a brush with nubs on the ends (pictured below.  I figured if that didn't work well, I can use it for my horses' tails.  I used to have one for our rough coat collie. Ends up she hates the brush. Haven't tried the comb yet.)




So needless to say, I'll purchase probably a T-brush (a groomer recommended it) or undercoat rake (not sure, what would you guys recommend?) & a slicker brush at a different store.

From what I understand, yes. Means it's blowing out.

OK, so a $40 Furminator (aka. blade that cuts fur) is a better "investment" than an undercoat rake that costs $12? Puh-leeze.

Ami is taking forever to blow his coat - though I think I've lost 2 dogs worth of fur this spring. He started sometime in Mar and is still going!

Since he doesn't sit still very long for grooming, I take whatever opportunity I can and yesterday it was on our walk while he was working a chipmunk hole (the chipmunk scooted out between Ami's hind legs almost immediately, but let's not tell Ami that Laughing )As he was occupied with digging the hole, I stood on the side of the road, finger grooming, removing fistfuls of pantaloons and tail. There is now a carpet of long strands of fur which I am sure some bird will put to good use! The only down side was the the occasional snoot-full of dirt as Ami excavated Rolling Eyes
