What size and where do I get one from Kendal? Is it different to the 'coat king' that JD Julia is recommending?

The mat zapper looks like a slicker from the picture - is it different to a slicker? And the coat king looks like a dematting comb!

it is and isn't like a slicker, it has the same pins but is flexible and longer getting deeper into the coat. we get some dogs in for grooming with horrendous coats knotties the difference between the slicker and the les pooches.

lol i remember when i used to go to the groomer who was showing me how to clip my girls, i braught it with me one time as the girls coats were in a bad way, she was very impressed and ordered one that week.

I've not seen or used a Le Pouches brush before. I'll get one and give it a try and see what the comparison to coat king is. I'm always up for trying new equipment especially if it works.

Great, thanks for the info. Will make another purchase :)
How often should I be brushing her - is once a week enough? She hates it, but like JD mentioned I may have to get some hooks and tie her up!

I'm also going to give the Les Pooches brush a try - will probably order a green one for Maisie's soft, fine coat.

The cheapest place to buy, as far as I can see, is on redcape.co.uk

I've also heard that Chris Christensen wood pin brushes are excellent - has anyone tried these?

Izzy's coat is getting worse by the day! Have ordered Les Pooches (I would like to hear everyone's pronunciation! - I am going for the French, rather than the guitar - Les Paul) hope it gets here tres vite, life is desperate and Izzy lives in fear of the groomers clippers- we watched her scalp a bichon last year!

Okay now I need this cleared up!! II'll need to get Little Flo used to a brush when she is a puppy (this makes sense) with a little soft brush!! Then I will need to buy..... Les Pooches? What colour? Why? How? When? Aaaaaah! Poor Flo I don't want her to go bald!!! Visiting Flo on Saturday - she is 4 weeks and 4 days old now!!!! Will probably need help uploading millions of photos!!!

Redcape doesn't charge for postage, so that makes it very competitive price. Mine should be here any day - can't wait. Spent a long time on Teddy's matts today and found that Kendal's vertical scissor method worked pretty well. I think because my scissors were new and sharp I really didn't need to snip much, just run the blade down through the matt, with just a few snips. Trying anything to get rid of the blighters!

lol dont panic you wont need to worry about matting for atleast 7 months. the longer the coat the more mantanence, it also depends on the coat, Gypsy my eldist has the finest coat and is the most work, were as Inca is alot easiter, Echo is still going thugh phazes and Delta is a hole load or trouble, still got the puppys coat and the adult coat. collars, harness, rain coats rubbing the coat with a towle will all help the mats form. always take a come through the coat after brusheing, people tend to just brush the top of the coat so in smooths out but they are realy just covering the mat, underneeth it is almost like pressed felt thet kids use in art class. it work i was taught to work form the paws up so you have the work the hair in sections. part the hair top you cna brush from rout to tip.
