This brush has distinctly different pin pads, with medium and soft textured bristles, helping you adapt to changes in coat texture and work more efficiently.

Used correctly, these brushes will dramatically reduce overall grooming times. A cyclical patting motion, with light to moderate pressure, works bests and reduces the risk of damaging or displacing the pin pads. Each brush has been ergonomically designed to provide comfort and control, helping avert repetitive strain injuries (RSI). To further ease and improve the brushing process, we highly recommend using them with a leave-in conditioning or detangling spray.
