The slicker brush is one of the most effective tools for removing dead hair from the undercoat and topcoats. The slicker brush has densly planted wire teeth that are effective for removing mats and dead hair from long, wire, or curly haired dogs. Slicker brushes are great for dogs because they efficiently remove large amounts of dead hair. Flat slickers have rounded corners that will not catch fur and are suitable for fine and delicate coats. Fin and densely planted bristles make these slickers soft and flexible. Stainless steel pins gently penetrate deep into the coat. Non-slip handles are comfortable.
