Hi,

I wanted to know what kind of brushes do you use to brush your dogs!

I pretty much always use a metal wide tooth comb. I have tried some different kinds of brushes but the comb seems to work better for my crew. The one brush that I do have and like is this one, a Mason Pearson.

i mostly use the soft bristle brush.

on my own hair i use boar bristles. I wonder if those are supposed to be better for dogs' hair too.

Ditto for me. I love the Mason Pearson brush.

Hi there Laura,
I also use the Mason Pearson pure boar bristle brush on Coco. I always used one on myself, so then I bought another smaller one for Coco! (we don't share ;) )

I use Chris Christensen's slicker brush and pin brush. And I use the Original Greyhound comb.

I don't use the pin brush much yet because she has a short coat. The others are very useful.

:shock: could someone tell me exactly which Mason Pearson brush you use for your furbabies and how much it cost?...... I just looked on the web page and I saw brushes priced at nearly a HUNDRED DOLLARS :yikes

What's so special about them?

Thanks :D

Hi Claire,
For the cavs, it's the pocket sized pure boar bristle brush. They also make them in different sizes and in nylon.

It massages the scalp and spreads the natural oils through the hair. It makes such a difference. For our pups, it seems to do the same thing. It really makes Coco's fur shinier.

I have this one and was lucky to have gotten it as a gift! It really makes their coats shine.

My father in law bought mine at Crufts last year and it was £48 sterling. He thought I was mad :lol:

We bought our Mason Pearson when we were in the UK last September. We bought it at a chemist for about £24 sterling. It is the 'small' size brush, but not the pocket size. We've seen the same brush at dog shows in the US for $85.

The brush was recommended to us by some Cavalier breeders we were talking to at an AKC dog show.

Holy crap! I want a nice brush for Wesley, but I seriously couldn't see myself paying over $20 for one. Let alone over $100! YIKES!

:lol: :lol: I definitely paid more for the doggie's brush then my own! I also have a mason pearson and just love it. I figure it will last the life of the dogs. So, let's see, Jake will live to be 15 and Shelby the same...so it will cost me $2.84 per year per dog :D I bought mine at a dog show.
