Yeah, I was hesitant to use the furminator on him. OK, so an undercoat rake is on the shopping list, and I've been wanting to get a slicker brush for my girl for a while. He's very easy going and tolerant of grooming, I've been messing with his feet and rolling him on his side to test and he doesn't care one bit. We really don't have a good groomer around me, I don't know how Petsmart groomers are? Do those dematting tools work well?
