I was given the chance to review the Slicker Dog Grooming With Free Flea Comb And Bag by Rollin Pets. I was given this product for a discount in exchange for an honest review.
When we first got the brush, I was afraid that my dogs would absolutely hate it and that it would possibly hurt them because of the way the brush looked. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how soft it ended up being. My biggest dog, Murphy the Golden Retriever, was the test doggy for this experiment, mostly because he’s the only dog that doesn’t mind getting brushed.
So, the top picture is actually a picture of the knots Murphy had been getting in his fur. The dog has more fur than your typical Golden, and if we dont CONSTANTLY brush him, he gets these little clumps in his fur. Honestly, if we let him out to pee and he rolls, he gets them. It’s that bad. And he sheds. Oh good lord does this dog shed. Like more than any dog should ever shed and I find his hair everywhere because why WOULDN’T I want to vacuum and sweep every single day.
Anyway, so the dog tends to get those knots and sometimes they can be hard to get out. Mostly because I don’t want to hurt him by pulling on the brush too hard and yanking on his fur. So, I decided to go ahead and give this brush a go on some of the knots he had by his hip. Let me tell you what this thing was amazing.
As you can see by picture 2, it took out ALL of the knots that I had been dealing with in his fur. All of them. No tugging or annoyances required. It was amazing and I couldn’t have been happier for it. The dog was happy, I was happy, it was great. You can even see the knots inside the brush there, which I thought might hurt him, but he was fine. He didn’t even flinch.
The third is what happened after brushing him for like a minute. Just one minute of brushing did all of that awesomeness. His fur was so soft and awesome. He seemed to really enjoy it and just laid there while I was brushing him. It honestly made a huge difference in the way his fur felt.
I would really recommend this brush to anyone with a dog with longer fur, especially if they have an undercoat.
