The Pin Brush is excellent for general grooming of small to large dog breeds. This Pin Brush helps to lift out loose hair and debris. Brushing distributes natural oils, leavinga shiny, healthy coat. If the coat tends to be heavily matted, a Safari comb, rake, or slicker can be used to break up the mats. The Pin Brush can also be used to fluff the coat by brushing against the direction of hair growth.
