Good hair day

Dear Dogs Today,

Can anyone suggest a good brush for my mum's Sheltie, Sherry? Mum needs something that is easy to hold, and something that can see to Sherry's double coat.

Katie at FURminator says...

Due to the long coat length of your Sheltie, coupled with its breed size, we would recommend that you use a FURminator deShedding tool, specifically the Medium Size, Long Haired variety.

FURminator deShedding tools are not a blade but a specifically designed edge to cater for your pet’s exact coat and body type. The toothed edge safely removes all the loose undercoat without disturbing or cutting the top coat. With regular use you should see both a reduction of loose hair as well as an improvement to your pet’s top coat.

The ergonomic handle gives the tool ease of use which we recommend you do 1-2 times a week for 10-20 minutes each session.

We always recommend that you brush out any matts or tangles from your pet’s coat before using your deShedding tool. A suitable brush or comb can be found within the FURminator grooming range.

  1. It has to be a Furminator. They come in different sizes and blade lengths for different sizes of dogs and different coat lengths. They get all the dead fur out like nothing else, and they've got a brilliant rubber handle. They're an investment, but certainly a good one.
