Best de-matting tool ever!!!!!! I bought this tool about 12 years ago for my Kerry Blue Terriers and it was wonderful!! Takes out matts, burrs, dead hair, etc!! I now have an Irish Water Spaniel and use it on him. Nothing else will go through his fur. The handle has been chewed, but even after all these years, this tool still works perfectly! My only complaint is that it is designed for right handed people which is why I'm on this site -to see if I can find one for lefties!! Would highly recommend this for any dog coat prone to matting!!!
