    posted bymikeham on 01/06/2012

    Removes huge quantities of hair without tugging or snagging. Useful push-button clears hairs from the comb. Solid, heavy build quality. None, but don't overdo it as you could easily end up with almost bald patches on your dog's coat My dog is a a... Read more

    posted bymikeham on 05/15/2011
