BRUSH RECOMMENDATIONS PLEASE!

Recommended Posts

Hello from TX!

 

Recommendations on good brushes? Bowie is almost 6mo and he’s officially started to shed. I’d like a brush that’s not going to ruin his coat and is also enjoyable for him. He’s such a fuzzball. Thanks all!

We're not from the same country so I don't know if we have the same brands. I have a double row undercoat rake and it works very well brushing out the thick coat. Mayo isn't a huge fan of being brushed but she'll just have to put up with it! :P

any undercoat rake would be your best bet...also a blower (reverse vacuum cleaner) can be your best friend...

I use a single row undercoat rake  -  Marley's coat is far too long and thick to take a double row - his tail 'hair' is around 9 inches long and resembles a thick fox tail

Harlow hates being brushed and have tried using a normal pin type brush and single rake which work but with a lot of resistance. Now I just take her to a husky groomer every 6 months because I'm lazy

I'm always worried they'll shave Mayo if I bring her to one in summer. Do you specify "DO NOT SHAVE" or do you let/want them to do so?

I was very particular and specified no cutting fur including furninator to the first groomer but then I found one in the book I got from Harlow's breeder which is a sponsor of the WA Husky Association. She has had huskies for 22 years and I never even needed to say a thing she was so good. I'm sure their would be a similar association over there who would have recommended groomers?
Down side is it costs a lot but she just understands huskies so well so I have no hesitation taking her in

Marley goes twice a year to get brushed out  - he has never blown his coat, it just gets thicker and thicker  - someone needs to tell him he is a husky!   I was worried when I first took him so insisted I stay  - and I  told them  'nothing with a blade'  combs and brushes only.   I do try and groom him  - but since he got to be an adult he has other ideas.   About once a month he is 'in the mood' and will tolerate it  -  for about 10 mins max.

I use a rake on my 2, I do it daily and 3 times a day when they’re shedding Cai has never had an issue with me raking him but Luka blue hated it as a pup but he’s ok with it now......finally.

Luna doesn’t like being brushed or washed, particularly her back end and underneath. She has snapped at me twice now so I told her, if u won’t let me wash and brush everywhere then u are banned from swimming in the river... as if..
