Best Undercoat & Grooming Rakes For Dogs: Buyer’s Guide
What Are Undercoat & Grooming Rakes Used For?
Each rake might have a different use – so, check the product description.
But, some are just for removing undercoat hairs and deshedding, whilst others can both deshed, and detangle/demat.
Curved Take Teeth vs Straight Rake Teeth
Some rakes have curved teeth – usually with the inner part of the teeth being slightly sharpened to cut through matting and tangles, and the outer part being blunt and rounded.
Other rakes have straight teeth.
Refer to the uses of the rake to determine which one is suitable for you.
Long Hair vs Short Hair Dog Undercoat Rakes
The product description should tell you if the rake is suitable for long hair or short hair dogs, or both.
But generally, for longer or thicker haired dogs, you may want a rake with deeper rake teeth that can reach down to the base of the coat to pick up loose hairs.
Undercoat Rakes For Different Dog Breeds – Small, Large, Double Coats, Etc.
Some rakes come in one size, whilst others come in different sizes (for different sized dogs and pets).
Refer to the product description of the rake which should specify what size, breed and types of dogs the rake is designed for.
Some rakes might specifically be designed for long hair, thick fur and double coat breeds for example, whilst others might be designed for all breeds.
Using Rakes With Brushes, Deshedding Tools & Combs
In addition to a rake, some people may also want to use a brush or comb to finish a coat and leave it looking plush or fine.
Although a rake can help with removing loose undercoat hairs and dematting, it might not be as good at finishing a coat (but, it depends on the rake you use).
