Disadvantages: None at all the small brush is very worth four quid!
The one thing you need for a dog especially a poodle like me and my mates dog Daisy is a very good brush. Daisy has a woolen coat that is very prone to going into tight curls and of course a poodle is meant to be soft and fluffy! Daisy enjoys life, loves to romp in grass and so on and so when we spotted this slicker brush in our local pet shop costing £4.00 we opted to get one as we prefer a brush such as this to use on her as well as a flea comb to do a flea check after a brush.
This brush comes in three sizes. We opted for the small brush but it is also available in a medium and a large size all at different prices and they all appear the same apart from that the brush head goes from small to large of course depending on the size you go for and these brushes are suitable for dogs and cats and I will be getting one for my cat Myrtle as I like to use it so much on Daisy and am pleased with the results.
Appearance wise its actually a nice product and looks good quality as well as feels it. Its made of light pink (dusky rose coloured) plastic which is smooth and lightweight and comprises of the long handle which has a hanging hole to the end of it and then the squared head to the other end of it with lots of silver pins of good length that are flexible and not too sharp. A huge benefit of this is a slightly textured rubberised area on the handle designed for our fingers and thumb when in use which makes it very comfortable and safe to use.
This slicks though the hair really well. If I stumble across a matt or lug I gently hold it at a short length from Daisy and pull at it gently with this brush and it glides through it.
Before using this brush I was using a soft bristle brush which wasn't doing anything for her knots and tangles this though does and even though this goes on and close to her skin I am happy enough to think this isn't hurting her and she acts quite contented......in fact I would go as far to say I think she enjoys a good grooming and this really does make her hair very soft and fluffy in a very quick time too so its less effort for me.
For me I just want to do the job and this removes loose hairs as well as everything else and then I simply pull the hair out removed from Daisy's coat and remove it and that's the job done every so easily. Also not being made from material I can rinse this through and leave it to soak in stuff to clean it out and its as good as when we bought it almost a year ago!
Available in a variety of pet stores and so on and Google if interested
Summary: Brilliant item for dogs and/or cats!
