  • Slicker Brushes

    I have to say, I love my LesPooch brushes. I have them in every size and color for every need. But, the other day one of our groomers came in with a Chris Christiansen brush and I loved the way it fit in my hand. It made me curios about what else am i missing?

    I use a Universal in the tub for undercoat.

    I've always used Universal, no other brush seems to have enough guts! They sure don't have any cushion to the handle, though!

      Universal and occasionally Doggyman over here.

        I just use Pawbrothers with the hard bristles and am happy with them. I have never used Les Poochs, but have heard wonderful things about them. I don't do extensive dematting either, and tend to push hydroclipping and starting over with the coat if I can't demat within about 30 minutes.

            I use Les Pooches brushes. I did have a CC slicker brush but the thing fell apart after I used it a for a while. The handle at the base came loose and i tried the glue gun on it and it didn't work well so I tossed it.
            Thats just my experience. It was probably a bad batch, I seem to get enough of that..
            I have better luck with the Les Pooches they last a long time and I use them everyday on everything.

                I've had problems with the Universal's handles snapping on me and the others in the shop. My soft slicker died (not Universal, but a petsmart purchase many years ago) and I need to get a new one. Granted, I still use the universal, but I'm always looking for a new type.

                  I have always used plain ole slicker brushes....Universal and other brands.....but I need to find something else that is more ergonomic. My and hand get sooooo tired and crampy feeling really quickly now. Another sign of age...sigh.

                    Shelia, I know what you mean. But with poodle feet. I use my clippervac on feet and faces but my hands are not like they used to be. Its easy on the ones who behave but the ones who are a bit of a struggle, my hands cant take it anymore. I'm only 32! Then they are crampy with everything else the rest of the day.
                    I do see my chiroprator on a regular basis. He adjusts my wrists all the time. Really helps.

                      I was at a seminar that Jodi Murphy did and she reccommended MircleCoat's slicker. I think thats the name of it. I bought one and it does do a great job with mats and knots. Its kind of stiff. I liked it and I think I will be buying another. Also its all plastic and rubber so if it gets wet it won't rot.

                        I use a Universal for my messy work. While the dog is being finished i use the Slika brush. It is the blue one made in England. If i have a groom that used a 5 or 4 then i will blow dry with a CC pin brush. I use a human dryer since i groom in peoples homes.
