spiritspirit trimmedSpirit has always had a thick coat.

She has a smooth top coat, and a thick bushy undercoat which tends to knot up.

We tried shaving her last year, and it worked to some degree, but it soon grows back.

Mars Comb

 

I spotted a mention on Facebook from someone recommending the Mars Coat King, for stripping out dense undercoats so I thought I would give it a go!

Do you know what? It works great!

She doesn’t seem to mind it in the slightest and although it will take time to work through all her coat, the sections I have done so far are not as bushy. It needs emptying regularly as it traps the hair in the head, but that is a small price to pay.
