If you are hurting him with the brush, your technique is probably wrong.Originally posted by JMM+Aug 23 2005, 07:03 PM--><!--QuoteBegin-Bridge
He's got little mats in his hair, that's when it hurts. Can I order the brush on-line?Originally posted by Bridge+Aug 24 2005, 08:49 AM--><!--QuoteBegin-JMM

Thanks for the info. I'm checking out Bless the Beasts detangle shampoo and the A1 systems brush. Can you get Bless the Beasts anywhere else but on-line? The S&H is killing me.
I just bought a Yogi doggy potty for Bailey. It looks simpler than the Wizdog, and I heard it's more comfortable on their feet. It will take some time to train him to go on that as opposed to the litter box, but it's worth not always wiping his feet.

Pico never liked the pin brush or the slicker brush, no matter how carefully I used them. I think it was the sound they made.
Anyway, I've been brushing him ever since he lost his puppy coat with a paddle type natural bristle brush and he loves it! Since he is in a puppy cut it seems to do the trick as far as removing any loose hairs that could cause mats and he just loves to be brushed. I do always use Pure Paws spray when brushing him and then I go over him with a steel comb to find any mats and I have to say I rarely find any.
For his mustache, which gets really crinkled up, I hold his 'stache with my second and middle finger close to his muzzle and spritz a little grooming spray on it and then comb it out with the steel comb. It cleans the boogers out and smooths the hairs at the same time. Holding the mustache keeps the comb from tugging the hairs.
I never thought I'd see the day but he actually dozes off when I get to the combing part of the grooming. Of course, I am super gentle in case I hit a mat.
