I really need to buy one of those forced dryers. Because I think Rusty would be a nightmare with one I haven't. Call my lazy but I just don't feel like training him with one when he stands so nicely for my other grooming tools. But they do make a difference. I love the results.
I use a slicker brush (maybe the same as a pin brush?), the rake thing and the shedding blade that Freddy posted. His coat looks really good.
