Slicker brushes will work on most coat types. The short bristles will grab and remove loose hairs and debris. A daily brush will help reduce the amount of hair shed around your home. Keep in mind that frequent brushing will reduce tangles and matting. It also keeps your dog’s coat clean by removing surface debris and helping spread the natural oils produced by their skin. Brushing is a great way to bond with your dog and most of them will love how it feels. It will also help you inspect your dog’s skin for lumps, bumps, parasites or abnormalities.
Gently brush away from your dog’s skin in the same direction as the coat grows. Take your time to carefully untangle any knots, just as you would with your own hair. If the tangles aren’t coming out easily, try applying some Leave in Conditioner and use a comb or rake to separate the knot. If you are unable to loosen the knot, it’s time to visit your professional groomer or vet. We don’t recommend using scissors to cut out knots, as sometimes you can accidently cut your dog’s skin. If your dog is nervous with the brush, take it slow and keep the experience positive – brushing small areas at a time and using treats or rewards can help.
Brushing is for more than just grooming. A daily brush will improve your dog's skin and coat health, and will reduce the amount of hair shed around your home.

I like the brush but find it a little difficult to clean, other brushes I've had your can easily remove the hair but unfortunately with the Slicker I can remove the outer edges of the brush easily but the hair is firmly stuck in the middle and rinsing it under the tap doesn't remove it either. As the bristles are metal they are a little tricky to get right in there. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks.
Hi Justine, Thank you so much for the review. The best way to clean the Brush is to wait until the brush is full of fur, grasp the fluff ball from the edges and it should lift off easily. Alternatively, if you have purchased our comb, you can slide it into the brush and it will lift easily as well. Hope that helps!
Excellent .... very happy love that this brush just glides through Loui ‘s coat . As this was my first time purchasing “DOG “ was rather selective .... no need the slicker brush wash just perfect gliding through Loui’s coat
