GroomMaster ProFlex (Doodle) Slicker Brush for dogs:
Made for wool-coated breeds with dense, wavy and curly hair. This slicker brush features lightened flexibility together with long, firm textured bent wire bristles. The reversible design delivers two bristle textures – one to stretch and straighten the coat (whilst drying) and the other to diffuse and create volume and shape. This brush is primarily a ‘finishing’ tool and, whilst it can remove minor tangles, it is not suitable for dematting.
Why choose a flexible slicker brush?
Flexible slicker brushes provide several advantages:
- They are kinder to coat and skin, helping prevent brush burn and damage to healthy coat.
- They can help avert wrist and hand fatigue – even with prolonged use.
- They have two sides, with different bristles, to tackle a greater variety of coat types, lengths and textures.
How do I use it?
Although similar to a traditional slicker, this flexible design demands a more specific brushing technique. For the best results, and to prolong working life, we recommend using the brush in a repetitive cyclical motion, patting, stretching and straightening the hair as you work through the coat.
Avoid brushing from side to side and over bending, as this may dislodge the rubber pads and damage the pins. If you’re needing excessive pressure is needed to penetrate the coat, consider switching to a firmer brush. GroomMaster offers a range of brushes, with different levels of flexibility and texture, in order to achieve more effective results.
What breeds can I use it with?
This particular slicker brush is made for breeds with curly coats, including Poodles, Bichons and similar ‘hybrids’. Both the flexibility and pin specification are unique, to tackle the natural characteristics of these breeds, helping to penetrate their coats with greater efficiently for fast, effective results.
Flexible slicker brushes are highly efficient, gently removing dead hair with minimal effort and discomfort to animals. They are great for stretch drying and fluffing, brushing out furnishings and thinning the coat where needed. This patented flexible slicker brush makes grooming a real pleasure.
