Coastal's Safari Wire Pin Dog Brush is excellent for general grooming. The pin brush helps to lift out loose hair and debris. Brushing distributes natural oils, leaving a shiny, healthy coat. If the coat tends to be heavily matted, a Safari comb, rake, or slicker can be used to break up the mats. The Wire Pin Dog Brush can also be used to fluff the coat by brushing against the direction of hair growth.
