I'm looking for some help here please, preferably in the form of an online link. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to find a reasonable quality but not too expensive wire pin brush. The problem as I'm sure you all know is finding one without bobbles/round heads to the pins. I say not too expensive as it seems to me that whatever they cost they only last so long with a Briard's coat. The last one I bought was from Amazon and wasn't too bad but they no longer seem to have the same one. Thanks.

Thanks Carol that's a great site. Dillon is clearly very posh, the brushes look great but a bit expensive..... Anything cheaper anyone? If not I guess Os and Snoopy are in for a grooming treat.

I must admit, I am a fan of Hub International. Some of the things do seem expensive, but they do stock a variety of stuff and deliver really promptly. They also phone you very swiftly if they need to clarify something about your order. I have started ordering huge containers of shampoo and conditioner, which is a lot to fork out in one go, but it works out cheaper in the long run. I started out buying cheap shampoo from a local pet shop, but once you've tried some decent stuff, there's just no comparison and makes grooming after bath-time so much easier.

I've never used a wooden pin brush; I didn't know there was such a thing! Thanks Carol, I think I'll get one.

Debbie recommended them to me, I find it very good it doesn't rip the hair, I also use a comb with roller teeth that is very good as well.

Dylan's brush with wooden pins has just arrived - I wish I'd got one years ago. It's fabulous. Dylan actually seems to like being brushed with it (no more running off when the brush appears) and it gets the knots out beautifully. It was expensive, but I'm sure I've spent more over the years buying and discarding cheaper brushes.

The British Briard Club sell a good pin brush. It is an Innis and is reasonably priced. You can get one from Kim Kass whose details you will find on our website:
