Featuring a contoured wooden handle, our Safari Dog Shedding Comb is available for shorthaired dogs and longhaired dogs. The smooth, rounded teach are gentle to the dog's skin. The long teeth penetrate deep into the undercoat, while the short teeth collect loose hair. Begin combing from the head working toward the tail and down the legs. Be sure to comb behind ears, base of tail, under legs, nape of neck and abdomen which can easily mat on dogs with undercoats.
