|Sitz&Platz||I second the furminator. I also vacuum Dexter with my Dyson grooming attachment, which gets a lot of hair out.|

Petco De-Shedding Blade for Dogs at PETCO
This. It's called a De-Shedding Blade. It's perfect for the full coat blow as it gets EVERYTHING out and it's good for a quick brush. It also goes pretty quickly. I had the Furminator and it seemed like I was combing forever, but with the blade, I was done in about 15 minutes. I use the Furminator for every day combing and the Blade once a week.

|middleofnowhere||I have many combs, a couple of rakes, matt splitters, slicker brushes. What worked on my long haired dogs, doesn't work on my tight coated female. It does depend on the nature of the coat. (not all metal combs work the same - they look alike but they work differently on different coats - a metal comb that was a charm with my long coats doesn't do squat for my tight-coated youngster.|

It has also worked well for our long coated cat. Her hair balls are a lot less frequent now.

Furminator and shop vac !
With the shop vac, first I blow then I furminate then I suck. It keeps shedding down to a minimum- certainly not zero but it's tolerable.

Another vote for Furminator.

My first foster dog roxy loved being shot vaccd, she would lay on the floor and let the vac suck up her tail, tummy and back. The hair would FLY out of her lol it was hilarious.

|Galathiel||My pup did a major blow out (he's solid black as well) and it was painful to see as he's an inside dog. However, now he hardly sheds at all. I just use a combination brush/slicker to brush him. Except for the area right down his back bone, he's a pretty close coated dog so I feel even the slicker on those areas would irritate his skin so I just brush those parts.|
