A good selection of brushes, combs and rakes is essential in any dog grooming salon. While it is not necessary to have every one on the market, having the correct equipment for the dogs you are grooming will make a big difference. A normal salon selection would be:
A large and small good quality slicker brush
A greyhound comb with combination teeth
A mat breaker
A de-shedder / carding tool
For grooming at home, your groomer can normally advise on maintenance grooming and the equipment that is best. In fact most groomers are very keen to do so as it is essential to ensuring that your dog can be given the finish that you want.
Your dog groomer may also stock these items for sale and can advise on its correct use.
