Coat-Kings work well with all different kinds of breeds and coats.
Place tool on coat with light pressure and comb out in the direction of hair growth. Note: going against or aside hair growth will cause excessive cutting of hair. Only use once a week or every other week. (Too much use could result in a bald pet!)
Coarse & Medium styles (6 – 12 blades)
for prep work and thinning out undercoat
Fine styles (16 – 20 blades)
for grooming soft, heavy coats
