I just have to share my love of this new brush by ConairPro. I ordered this "Soft Slicker Brush" in the medium size, mostly to bump up the total purchase of a recent Drs. Foster and Smith order so that I could get free shipping, and it turned out to be the best item in the order! I do my own grooming and I have to say, it is not my favorite job. If I would find the time to groom every day, the task would be easier, but the reality is that no matter how much I vow to be more diligent, I can't seem to do a full, thorough grooming during the week days. I like to keep Gracie's body hair a little on the long side during the winter months, (and I always keep her leg hair long) but have found that I can only let it get so long before I end up cutting her back down to about an inch long due to tiny little matts popping up all over the place. I then have to scissor through the ones in her legs. In the past, I have stayed away from slicker brushes because I don't want to hurt her. I find that no matter how careful I am, I still touch her skin with the tips every so often and based on personal experience, I know it hurts! This brush has soft tips at the end of each wire so no more worries! It used to be that I would groom a little on Sat. and then again on Sun. to cut down on the time that Gracie had to stand on the table and even then I would end up leaving some of the matts. Now I find that I can do a full grooming in one session in less than half the time it used to take, and in the end, Gracie is soft, and fluffy, and matt-free! I very much recommend this brush!!
