groomer and pin brushes!

o.k. so I am checking new groomers in my area. I called this one that has been up the street for over 20 years. She swore she has groomed havaneses many times. When I took Maya up there some how brushes came up. I told her I was looking for a good pin brush for her, and then she says you never uses a pin brush on these dogs only slickers. Thought It was the other way around.

Not necessarily, although I don't like to hear people say "never" . A cheap pin brush is useless on a Hav coat. Pin brushes are traditionally used to fluff out curly coats like poodles and bichons. For many havs a pin brush is just one tool, and most coats need to be followed through with a comb and slicker.

I only take Quincy for the "a la carte" menu at the grooming place, but I've seen her tools because I stay in the room with her while she's working on him. She mostly uses a comb and only uses a slicker on his legs once in a while. Mostly she just uses the comb. I can count the number of times I've used a slicker on Q. I just don't care for it and he doesn't seem to like that particular brush either.
