Hand (Glove) brush for dogs
This worked really well. I got it for Christmas from Mrs. Johnson. It is awesome on a lot of levels but mainly you can “brush your dog” everywhere without worrying about scratching up his skin. I would go against the grain of the hair and then back with it and removed a grocery bag full of hair.
At the conclusion of the brushing, I use the wet washcloth and smooth him out and he looked amazing. He probably would win Westminster now.
