Brush the coat first to loosen mats. Using the Slicker/Rake, stroke the coat in the direction of the hair growth. Start at the rear of your pet and work your way forward. To prevent pulling of the skin, place your fingers between the Slicker/Rake and the skin. Slowly stroke through the mats with a saw-like motion. To assist with mat removal, use the CHI for Dogs Oatmeal Conditioner.
Use the CHI Combo Slicker and Shedding Rake to eliminate tangles and mats. This product allows you to reduce the time you spend grooming your dog by allowing you to work the undercoat and top coat at the same time.
