After much searching, I actually got one from Sally's Beauty Supply. I had read that natural bristle brushes were best, and it seemed like so many of the ones at pet stores were synthetic or a mixture of synthetic/natural. Plus some of them seemed very rough to the touch.

Here is the one I got. You can buy it online, but I got mine in the store: Brush Strokes - Brush Strokes Soft Boar Bristle Brush . It is specifically labeled as a "soft" boar bristle brush, which I think makes a big difference.

I use the furminator for my short hair girl. It really takes out the undercoat! Once a week does it! I use a slicker brush on my longcoats. One of the rubber curry combs work well too.

I have the Kong Zoom for Jaxx. He loves getting brushed with it and he thinks it is playtime when I brush him. I want to get a furminator but just haven't ordered it yet.

Amberleah fur is so short never thought about brushing her. I run wet cloth on her in between baths.

I like the flea comb for smooth coated Chis. It's time consuming, but gives great results.
