Throw out that pin brush right now! That is a very common mistake. A pin brush is properly used for fluffing out long poodle type hair such as on bichon frise head and poodle top knots. Mind you, I said fluffing out, not maintaining it. They still have to get a comb through and nevermind dematting with a pin brush. If you have a high quality one that has dense pins then it could be ok, but most of the more common ones are not effective. That will lead you down the path of not being able to identify tangles and your puppy will end up matted, unless s/he is going to have limp thin coat. You need a soft slicker at this point and then switch to a comb as your #1 tool. Even if you are going to give your puppy haircuts.
