Designed specifically for shorthaired dogs, our Safari Nylon Coated Tip Dog Brush provides the combined benefits of a firm slicker and bristle brush. The rubber pins penetrate deep into the coat to remove loose hair and undercoat. The special tips on the rubber pins gently massage the skin to distribute natural oils, producing a healthy, shiny coat. It is an ideal tool to help reduce shedding for a healthy coat and home. Regular grooming of your dog's coat will keep it clean and healthy, and time spent grooming increases the bond between you and your dog.
