Smartcoat Double Sided Hard Flexi Slicker
Double Flexible Slicker brushes are specially designed to make brushing a lot easier, faster and painless for you and your pet.
Comfortable handle made from soft non-slip rubber and with the flexible head, the brush head will follow the shape of your pet’s body. Therefore the stress on your hand & wrist is reduced and repetitive strain injuries are prevented.
Another important feature is that this brush can be used on both sides, which makes it perfect for both left- and right-handed groomers. The brush pins ensure a good grip on the coat. They allow you to easily detangle, remove all mats and loose and dead hair is collected in the brush pad.
Handle varies from the photo and is soft rubber handle
For bigger breeds with a thick, difficult to curly or double coat, for detangling and larger brushing areas.
For small to medium-sized breeds and smaller brushing areas, we recommend the Single Flexible Range in Soft or Firm
Gently brush and pull the brush towards the handle (don’t twist your wrist). Let the pins glide through the hair and repeat if necessary. Brush without putting downwards pressure on the skin.
Long coats – Gently brush with a light, long stroke, brushing beyond the ends of the hair tip to avoid static and breakage. For the best result, brush the hair in layers. Start at the bottom by parting the coat horizontally and holding the unbrushed part up with your free hand. Work methodically upwards, keeping your wrist straight to avoid contact with the dog’s skin.
Curly coats – Brush in the direction of the coat growth and then against it using light, long strokes.
Wiry coats – Brush in the direction of the coat growth, then against it if necessary to remove mats and dead hair..
For De matting – Gently put the brush pins on the mat with a tapping movement and tease a few hairs from the mat by pulling the brush towards you and thus removing the pins away from the coat.
To prevent mats and tangles, the dog’s coat should be regularly bathed, treated with a conditioner, and brushed daily.
