[nagdu] grooming tools

I don't use a slicker brush or a comb at all.  Belle hates the slicker brush 
and will run and hide every time I get it out.  Monty's coat is way too 
short for the slicker.  Mostly I use a rubber curry comb on Belle.  It's 
actually a horse product, but the Zoom groom is very similar and four times 
as expensive.  On Monty I use a glove with little rubber teeth.  Sometimes I 
will use a brush with nylon bristles, similar to a people hairbrush.  It 
does a good job of distributing the oils.  I do use the Furminator from time 
to time, more so in warm weather.  The package directions do indicate not to 
use it more than once a week though.

Hi everyone.  I'm wondering if you use any grooming tools aside from the
slicker brush and comb that your school provides.  I have a Furminator
so have been using that a few times a week.  If you have the firminator
how often do you use it and if you've tried any other grooming tools I'd
be interested in hearing about them.  Thanks.
