I don't know so you tell me


Preferably one I can get from an actual store as opposed to online, if that's possible. Pics and descriptions would be appreciated.

thanks.

I have a 4.5" Greyhound Fine/Medium Comb. I love that size because it is so much easier to use on small dogs.


I also have a 7.5" comb but I've only used that one a couple of times. It is just to big to easy use on the girls (at least for me). I also have a slicker brush and pin brush. But most of the time I use the 4.5" comb.

Alot of people here say that these are the best combs and brushes, I haven't bought any yet myself. I am planning on buying a couple of the combs and one of the brushes soon though

Here is a post about the brushes and if you scroll down they talk about the combs and which ones to use on a Maltese

I'd probably start with a basic greyhound comb like the one Kristi posted. You can always upgrade to a more expensive comb later on, although unless you plan on keeping him in a full coat, you may not need it.

What is the difference between a greyhound comb and a buttercomb?

I think the Buttercomb is the name trademarked by Chris Christensen for a fancy version of the original greyhound comb. The regular, much less expensive greyhound combs are made of stainless steel, I believe. The Buttercomb is made of solid brass and nickel plated.

A#1 All Systems makes a very similiar comb to the Buttercomb that I will probably buy eventually. It has medium/coarse teeth which I think might work better for me than the fine/medium combination in the Buttercombs. That's what the greyhound comb I have now is and it works great on Lady's thicker, more cottony coat.

And it's $5 cheaper, too!

If you don't want to buy on line - is a catalog OK? http://www.cherrybrook.com has sends out several a year AND you can also find them at most big shows here in the northeast. They carry the full linke of Chris Christensens. They are pricey though, so don't expect any bargains. For cheaper stuff, go to http://www.petedge.com. They also carry a big line of grooming products and have a catalog, but have less of the "high end" stuff. Unfortunatly, Petco, Petsmart and Petland (the latter I never buy from for ethical reasons), rarely carry GOOD grooming equipment.

Petedge is great for someone just starting out. The carry a huge selection of products from great companies like Pet Silk, All Systems, etc. Get them to send you a catalogue and start a wish list!

I have the small buttercomb and love it. I use it one their faces. Be careful though. I have a habit of laying things down and I couldn't find it. I missed having it so much that I ordered another one. Two days after I received it I found the first one under the couch cushion! I now keep one in the car to tidy up their faces before we go in a store or somewhere.

I'm in love with my small buttercomb too! It is the best comb to get out matts and eye crusties. It's the best $24 I've spent on anything for the dogs.

When you say "small buttercomb", which one do you mean?

It is the 4 1/2 inch Chris Christensen one. I have bought others the same size but the quality of this one is awesome. It really cleans up their faces. It is well worth the money. I got mine from Cherrybrook magazine.

Gotcha! So it has both coarse & fine teeth? I was confused because it says that one is 5 inches long. The 4&1/2 inch combs come in either coarse or fine, not a combination.

I like the #006, too. Someday.....

I love it because of the 24 teeth on one end. It really gets the crusties around their eyes.

So you all only comb your malt's faces...? No brush rite? I have the #1 all systems brushes (triangle and the soft one JMM recommends) and I want to make sure.

I have the triangle brush also, but my dogs don't like me to use it. I use the small comb daily. It is one of those things I couldn't live without!

I use both a comb and pin brush (A-1 All systems) on Dolce's face. I use a eyelash comb (for humans) to get the goobers out of her eyes, but this thread has convinced me to get the buttercomb!
