Yes, a rubber brush with rubber bristles I just bought one for Bella and you can use it while shampooing your pup in the tub. You should see the hair that comes out LOL!! I got one made by KONG, as in the kong toys. Go to your local pet store.....there sure to have them

use regular dishwashing gloves, rub the dog outside after working and that will be enough to remove all the dead hairs. If you do it everyday your dog's coat will be nice and tight and shinny as the sun.

I use the Furminator, and I think it works great! Seems to really cut down on how often you need to brush your dog too.

I was reading about that product in my searches but the negative reviewers claim that it actually thins out the hairs and not just undercoat? Do you feel like your dogs coat looks thinner?

I use curry combs and a de-shedding rake on the ones that shed a lot(the pointer mixes). I very rarely have to brush Indie out. Just when she sheds. But I use the rubber curry, and a stiff bristled body brush from the tack store. I've seen dogs that have been furminatored to the point of having bald patches. Some coats work with it better than others. I love mine on my cats.

Yup I use a curry brush
This one works great
Rubber Curry Brush for Dogs - Dog Grooming Brushes
This is another type of curry brush, I have both and they work great no matter which one you get
Amazon Amazon

I also use a furminator type brush when they are really shedding. You can get a cheaper version of the furminator I think I found one at Walgreen's once for like 10 bucks. I will not pay 50 bucks for something I can get for 10 You do have to be careful with the shedding tool or you can scratch the skin.

I use a zoom groom on Loki and I think it attracts the hair pretty well...after that I use my last dogs old brush...the kind with the bristles on one side and little spines on the other. I use the bristle side because Lo lovesss how it feels haha and I feel like it makes his coat shinier than just the zoom groom...but maybe that's just me

That is because they are not using it correctly! It can cut the hair and thin it out of you over use it. I have dogs who are blowing coat right now and I minimize it to short daily sessions. I show my dogs too and do not want to cut the hair and thin it out. I ONLY use it when they are blowing coat and that is about twice year but not all my dogs need it. The curry brush is what you will use for everyday grooming.

Rubber curry brush like this one:
Amazon Amazon

With regard to Furminator tools, they can be used on short-haired dogs like ours, but you need to learn how to use them correctly. When I get the time, I want to have one of the spa techs at my job show me how to use it. I've already gotten a rudimentary lesson, but I'm very good at screwing things up. I'd be the fool to brush burn my dog with that thing. LOL

I only brush her before and after baths which are about once every month and a half depending on how active we are. I just use a wire slicker brush.
