A soft slicker bursh and a comb would be enough? Or is a pin brush needed as well? I've been told to not use slicker on body, but the hair is so short that I don't see a pin brush working?? Suggestions?
I have the smallest CC brush and it would be PERFECT for a puppy cut. I'm not sure what you mean by a "soft slicker" brush, mine is too stiff to use every day, I was told not to use it for general grooming as it can break the hair. I only use the comb for feet and face.
I don't know if it's the right thing to do but when Abbey was trimmed to 2 inches, I just used the comb. Now, that she has grown out to 3 inches I use the pin brush for blow drying her and the comb for daily grooming. It seems like I miss matts if I use the pin brush alone & the comb does a better job for me.
If you are maintaining a puppy cut, a soft slicker is fine. It will break some of the ends, but on a puppy cut that will actually make it fluffier. I purposefully use a slicker on a silky coat in a puppy cut for that reason.
