|I just bought one at www.cherrybrook.com for $12 and love it.|
Incidentally, I call them neutered brushes...
|Do the pins fall back into the rubber cushion?|
|So far I haven't had any trouble with pins falling into the brush, if you press down on the pins the rubber piece will press down too.|
|I have similar brushes but after a while the pins slide back into the rubber and ends up very short pinned.|
|I'll let you know if it happens to this one, so far it is holding up really well. Of course, I've only had it for about a month.|
|Neutered brushes, thats funny:)|
|I'm loving the Mars Coat King brush. I have a lot of brushes, but this is my Go To brush.|

|Why do you use a brush with blobs on the pins? I would have thought the blobs would stop the "wires" hurting the skin? I have a slicker type bush but am having trouble keeping the mats at bay-they seem to come as soon as I turn my back-advise please. Would like to keep Sprocket with long hair as long as we don't have heat trouble with him.x|
|I had one once and the work great for holding the bin liners in place until there is more trash to put in on top of them...|

Did you mean why use a brush without blobs?
The balls on the end of the pins tangle in and grab hair and rip it out. Painful for the dog, and also results in a limp thin coat.
Yes, the thought is I'm sure (from the companies that make them) is that the balls will be smoother on the dog's skin. But with OES coat, it's bad news. That's why we end up paying more for a GOOD pin brush that has smoothed or rounded tips on every pin. The cheaper ones are just chopped off metal and have sharp edges.
|Yes,sorry,that's what I ment. Thank you for the info.x|

Pin brushes hurt and pull the skin of an OES. One of the best brushes to obtain are called an Innis (at around £15.00 - all different sizes and colours) or at the other end of the scale a Madson and Pearson (cost £50.00 and above - comes in all sizes and colours). I have noticed that Boots carry a good range of brushes - worth a look.
Good luck with your puppy....
