What type of everyday-use grooming brush is best for doberman? I've heard rubber one is best, what do everyone use to groom your doberman?

I use a zoom groom which is a type of rubber brush. I find it really good in removing all the loose hair that otherwise ends up on my floor! It's made by the same company that make kongs.

I sometimes use a Zoom Groom or rubber curry-type brush, but dobermans rarely need to be "brushed"... a light run-down once in a while to remove loose hairs is really all they need. Too much brushing or bathing can lead to irritated skin..

Funny, we also use a Zoom Groom, though we rarely brush. I also sometimes use a grooming stone.

I use a zoom groom made by Kong and one of those mitts that go over your hand that has small little rubber nobbies on the other side.

Yep that's the one I think mine was like $8 at PetSmart but you can find them anywhere.

They are basically just a rubber brush but it really works on the loose top coat hairs. Its easy on the skin, like a massage. I use it on my cats too and they love it
