grooming tools

Thanks for everyone's, input...think I will start with purchase of a CC 05 buttercomb..Rico actually likes the cheap pinbrush that I have..but.. know we are approaching that blowing the coat age! So want to be prepared. What about harnesses...I know these tend to mat hair more..any certain brands or types that do it less? Thanks again everyone for the info...BTW.... your dog pics are beautiful! .......Karen and Rico.

I've never had either tighten mats. But I also don't soak his coat with it... Just a light mist to keep down static. When he was blowing coat, I WOULD take care of any mats first, dry, with corn starch. Then I would mist him and finish grooming him.

Kodi CAn fo a week without grooming, and has, at times, when I've been away. But he looks like a ragamuffin by the time I get home, going that long without being groomed!!!

Everything that touches them will mat them while they are blowing coat. I use the Sense-ible harness, and now that Kodi has blowing coat behind him, it really doesn't cause mats. Of course, he only wears it when we are actually out on a walk. He's nekkid most of the time!

He still gets occasional knots from his car harness (Vest-harness brand), which has much more surface area. But those tend to comb out prettyeasily these days.

Kodi's beautiful coat appears very silky . . .if its cottony like Isabella's than I'm switching to what you use LOL. But her coat is VERY cottony and the products I've tried haven't helped. I ordered another round of products today after reading recommendations in Tillies thread . . .hopefully we'll hit eureka

CC=Wow!

Hello all, I have been a lurker here the past few months. We brought home Mika, our 14 wk old Hav, just about four weeks ago and things are going well for the most part. I will post some pics in the welcome area when I can download some from my camera.

I was fretting a little about the grooming aspect of Hav ownership as our little girl was quite resistant to both the brush and comb we had (basic tools we bought until we could order and receive our CC products, thanks for the recommendations here BTW) and I saw the grooming bills tallying up in my mind as she wanted no part of any grooming for more than a nano-second.

Well wouldn't you know that our CC wooden pin brush and 05 buttercomb arrived yesterday and it is already night and day. She actually sits on my lap now and seems to enjoy grooming!!! So glad for this site and the wonderful recommendations for these CC products, they truly do make a difference. She still likes to try and eat the buttercomb a bit but will tolerate the wooden pin brush for as long as necessary YAY!!!!!

Anyways just wanted to share my two-cents on these two items as they have seemingly transformed an activity that was a struggle to a nice quiet and peaceful grooming and bonding moment!

So glad to hear the right tools helped! I just think the CC tools are much easier on their skin, so there's much less to complain about!

Becky C, What style do you have of the greyhound pin brush? Like you, I like greyhound comb better then the CC.

Sorry... don't know how I missed this. Kodi does have the silky type coat, so I don't have any experience with the cottony coats. I am sure that different products work better on the different coat types, though.
