I just noticed that Delilahs Madan pin brush is missing 3 pins. I thought they aren't suppose to come out? Now I am going to go nuts looking for the missing pins, so no one steps on them barefooted or chokes on them.

There are two air holes so you are missing pins. I would contact the seller and see if it can be replaced. I've had mine for almost two years and it has yet to lose a pin.

I think what Marj was trying to say was that the pins sometimes go back inside the brush (underneath the air pocket) so the pins have not necessarily fallen out. All brushes will lose pins. My CC brushes seem to keep them longest, but even my oldest one of those has lost some now.

Yes, depending on where you got it the brush distributor may be willing to replace it. I had my first Madan brush replaced when I mentioned to the distributor at a show that the air pocket collapsed almost as soon as I got the brush. However, I have also seen them reply that the damage may not be the brushes fault, but rather the fault of the person doing the brushing.

Proper brushing technique does help preserve not only the coat of the dog but also the brushes themselves. Plus different types of coats are harder on brushes than others. I know that I like the Madan brushes on my girls, but prefer the sturdier CC brushes on Cadeau.

Marj!!!! I had no idea either, thanks... thought mine was missing a pin as well (but only saw one missing...will look closer). How the heck did you figure that out?:thumbsup:
I called the company and complained that my very first All Systems pin brush was missing pins, that's how! Duh, was I embarrassed when I found out it was supposed to be like that! :blush:

the pins sink into the holes they are in. I am constantly pulling them back up. The firmer madan didn't do that, but I felt it was too hard on Zippy. it had no give. I just keep pulling them back up. On the Christenson that I had, I lost pins as they sunk into their holes, and couldn't get them out, so now I pull them back up after each brushing. I am betting yours sunk down into their holes and are under the pad.

Gosh, that's terrible. Madans aren't that expensive so I guess if you have to replace them every so often you can't complain too much. But the CC brushes are pricey!

I think I paid a little over $20 for my CC pin brush, but I'm thinking about buying the Fusion pin brush at the next show I go to. It's $45 for the size I like. I've never had any of my pins sink very far..I've had them sink a little from being in my purse but not very far and I will just pull them back up. I have friends with the CC wooden pin brushes and they seem to hold up well except for when your dog decides to chew the pins off LOL

I hated the Fusion. I paid $45 for it, used it a couple of times, then discovered Madan. I sold it for $15 a couple months later since I never used it.

Yorkies have different coats than Maltese, though, so it might work for you. I'd see if you could try one first.

My new favorite brush is an Isinis brush. They are made in France and recommended by a few of the show breeders on YT. They called it a "tangle buster", but it sure doesn't work like that on a Maltese. I have found it to be a wonderful puppy cut brush, though. I've used it on my own hair. It feels like a scalp massage!
