I have a Maltese who gets those wispy mats. She is tender and doesn't like much fuss, so I need something easy to use that works fast. This comb is wonderful. The teeth are longer than most combs, which may make the difference and sharp. The blades are sharp, but with a serrated edge that makes it safer. Handle is comfortable and top has place for thumb to facilitate use. The blades slice through the hair, making quick work of the mat. Work big mats bit by bit from the end, holding the skin. My dog gives me no trouble. The blades are sharp enough not to pull the hair. This is a great tool. Just be patient and considerate of the size of the mat and your pet's sensitivity. I am going to order a second, in case it's discontinued.

I cannot count how many times I have recommended this product to other dog owners. They meet me and my labradoodle on the street or in the dog park and we start commiserating about how tangled these breeds get. Then they start running their hands through my dog's coat in amazement. Nine dollar Safari razor comb on Amazon. It really is that easy.

This comb is truly amazing. It won't do everything for you, though, and if you haven't brushed the tangles (not mats) out first, you will just end up ripping your dog's hair out. First, brush the dog with a normal slicker brush. I do all of these steps by area of the dog, by the way, so I'm not brushing the whole dog all at once, just one leg first, for example, then his head, then another leg. The first step gets out the superficial tangles. Second, comb the dog, in the direction of the hair, with the de-matting comb. Use a normal combing motion so as not to hurt the dog. Third, comb the dog using a rake comb (not a razored rake), also in the direction of the hair. This is also good between the toes. This gets out the tufts of mats that you just broke up with the razor comb and goes all the way to the skin to detangle everything. Finally, go back and brush the dog again with a normal slicker brush or with a comb on the face and ears. This picks up all of the loose hairs left behind by the razor comb that would just end up creating new tangles. You really don't need a hundred dollars worth of fancy french poodle brushes. You just need three cheap tools to get a great looking, happy, mat-free dog.

It's worth noting that there is no way to sharpen the blades because they are slightly serrated. But for nine dollars, I'm just going to buy a second one (I've had this one for 2 years).

I have a shih-tzu with long hair that tangles and matts within a day. I brush her daily but one missed day or a rough playing day and next thing I know she has matts. One day she got a large matt at the base if her keg (arm pit). I must have been brushing over it with my daily brushing. I felt like an awful puppy mommy! I thought to take her to the groomer, but I assumed it would be painful and they would shave all her hair off so I looked around online.

I end up purchasing this product and the Safari Mat Remover (with the small curved rakes). When I bought them I didn't know the difference and figured I would try one; if it worked I would return the other. I also bought a Lil Pals Slicker brush and a Lil Pals Double Sided Comb.

This DeMatting Comb and the Mat Remover work perfectly together! I use this product to break up large matts. It cuts through large matts, creating smaller manageable matts which I use Mat Remover. Then I finish off with a wire comb. If I hold the hair close to the skin, it is an easy painless process.

Now, When my dog has a grooming appointment, I take care of all the knots and matts because I know my hand is softer than the groomers. I love this product. My little Ginger loves this product.

I have a wooly Alaskan Malamute. He has been swimming a lot this summer, and i haven't been keeping up with his bathing or brushing. He has developed many deep rooted mats throughout his hind and rear quarters. This device has worked amazingly well. It is quite sharp so when you go to remove the clumps from the brush, make sure you swipe from the flat end (not the serrated end) i had a cut on my finger from just gently depressing my thumb into the serrated end... But you need the sharpness in order to brush through tough mats. Per the instructions, for tough mats, you need to start at the edge of the mat and work your way in. After 2-3 days of 10-15 minute sessions, his nightmare mats have all came out, and he is once again a good looking well kept dog!

I absolutely love this comb. I have a Yorkie and she gets matted very easily. This comb is a great money saver. I was spending extra money at the groomer to remove mats and now I can easily remove them myself. Just be careful because the blades are very sharp and you can easily cut yourself. Keep away from children.

If your dog has thin fur that gets knotted easily, BUY THIS NOW. Maltese, pom, yorkie or any mix of this breed will probably have thin fur that gets knotted close to the root. Usually owners have trouble keeping knots out after they let the fur on their dogs grow long. The quick solution (especially with a lazy groomer) is to shave off the hair to get under the knots. You have to do this to relieve the poor knotted dogs of being in pain from just moving around...since the knots cause unwanted tugs on the skin where knots are likely to form right at the joints.

Believe it or not, a dogs coat actually acts as its own protection against the summer heat. When grooming your dog in the summer, don't cut his hair very short, as you will actually be taking away this layer of protection.

Now to get to the actual review of the comb:
Quality - very nice construction. Feels like it will last a while. I don't know how you can sharpen the blades, but the handle is solid and I feel like at this price...you'd just buy a new one instead of trying to sharpen the blades when the comb has outworn it's effectiveness.

Design - The "comb" is made up of serrated blades that are designed to scoop up knots between the dog's skin and fur. The handle can be comfortable held close to the comb so that you can have precise control over this tool. Don't worry...the comb is designed so that you can safely use this to cut through knots and avoid hurting or cutting your dog. It's hard to explain, but for this price (under $10) it's worth seeing the comb just to make grooming your dog easier.

My gf and I left our comb back at her parent's house while we were on vacation and after 2 days without it, I'm already buying another one because I can't live without it. If your dog easily gets knots, buy this comb!!!
