    Can anyone recommend a brush suitable for labradors? My puppy is 5 months now and we tried her with a slicker brush which she absolutely hated. She’s already shedding a bit and I know it’s going to get much much worse!

    I use a groom zoom and silicon gloves which work well.

    I also have a furminator but use it sparingly as I don't want his coat to be completely striped.

    I also have two BSH cats who are monster shedders so I also have to embrace the fluff a little!

    Ooh thanks, I’ll have a look at those. We are used to fluff as our cat who died in October was a shedder - but she loved being brushed, it was one of her biggest pleasures, so we naively assumed the dog would like it too!

    My boy will tolerate being brushed but we have to do it as part of his settled time, I usually incorporate a massage too to check him over x

    I’ve just done a Fetch order for food and they had the zoom groom with money off so I’ve ordered it too. Fingers crossed she likes it!

    If she isn't keen on standing still to be groomed, try smearing wet dog food over the bottom part of your fridge door, and let her stand and lick it while you groom. When you are done, the fridge door is easily cleaned.
