I found a great dog brush for short haired dogs!

I have tried a few different brushes for Chance but have never been happy with them... I saw a rubber brush online that I wasn't really sure would work... but I figured that I would give it a try as it at least looked like it would feel nice to Chance...

This is the brush:

It is by JW and was pretty cheap.

It works well for giving him a bath too... the hair really clings to the brush when his hair is wet or damp.... it sort of flies off when it is dry, so dry brushings are probably better done outside.

He really loves the brush, which is a huge plus, and it is extremely comfortable in my hand to use...

It says it works with all types of fur... for both dogs and cats but I would think it would work best on the shorter hair types.

Take care.

t looks very ergonomically correct and also looks like you could get at his pits and belly pretty comfortably as well. :thumbs up

Ashley,

At just over $6, that is exactly why I went ahead and picked it up... I figured that if it didn't do what I wanted I wouldn't be out a bunch.

mummummum,

Yes, I can get all of him very easily... The head of it is fairly wide, however he will tilt his head as he likes it under his ears too... It feels really comfy to me so it probably feels like a spa treatment to him! lol! :laughing:

OntarioGreys,

I never thought of looking at the horse products, although now that you mention it that does make a lot of sense! I have looked into cat brushes, however, and even purchased one but it didn't work out the way I thought it would.

I figured it was either this or a grooming glove... and when I saw this I decided to go for this one as it could be used to shampoo him with too, which was a plus to me as it would be easier to reach all of him.

Take care. :pawprint:
