I'm on a roll . . . With the winter months, I'm letting Gracie's coat get a little longer, which means lots of grooming or lots of matts. Anybody have any experience with Les Poochs' brushes?

Thanks ladies. I'm making headway--a little bit each day. Gracie doesn't have any large mats, just a lot of tiny knots scattered about. All this week, I haven't put her on the grooming table. I've been brushing her while she's laying on the couch or on the bed. It wasn't something I planned, but I've discovered that she is way more receptive and relaxed. She actually seems to enjoy it, and it's a lot easier to locate and snip the little knots. I like the idea of the chewie Laurie and will try that the next time I put her on the table. Thanks again.

CJ, I have never trimmed Indie & use a comb with rotating teeth which she doesn't mind too much & I fluff her up with a slicker but do it gently as its quite scratchy & I wouldn't like it used on me!Also I groom her when she's either really tired & doesn't worry or I stick her on the grooming table that I bought & do her that way. I try to groom Indie every day but it doesn't always work out & can then take well over 30 minutes to get her done especially with the rain we keep having at the moment & the mud that sticks to her like glue!!

CJ, ill use a pin brush too on Puk if he has been out rolling in the leaves. Just makes it easier to pass the comb through. I have found that when I keep their coats long one day is all I can skip before the Matt's start to form. Give Gracie something to chew on while you groom her and only let her have it when you are brushing her. She will learn to love the attention and the toy that goes with it.

I don't like using a slicker for that reason, and I had hoped otherwise for the Les Poochs. A few of the reviewers said that their dogs were more cooperative during grooming with this brush because it didn't bother them. Makes sense that it would though. Right now, I'm using a pin brush, a long tooth comb, and a dematter when needed. I also sometimes use my small round-tip scissors to cut through a tough mat. I've been less than diligent with the grooming lately, but I don't think it's to the point of no return. I just need to keep the sessions short until I can get things back under control. Gave Gracie a bath this afternoon and really doused her with D-Mat afterwards, so I'm hoping that will help. Thanks for the insight.

I have one CJ,but have found the best thing is a long toothed comb. It is just easier to use and always seems to work the best. Nug has such sensitive skin any kind of scratching or scraping bothers him. Those brushes hurt. Run it up your arm the same way you would brush them, I find this works with any combs or brushes I buy, if I dont mind then I know they won't
