I was wondering how you guys brush the beags.
I use the Beagle recommended bristle brush, but I get the feeling that there still is a lot o dead hair stuck in Chloe's coat...
Any ideas?

Beagletails, I googled it and found them in 29 dollars, but that still is kind of expensive for a dog brush.
Jennifer, I do the same thing that you do, and Chloe has a shorter coat than most beagles, but I still get the feeling that it's not enough..... :conf12:

Eleanor: A bit late on a reply and see that you already bought something but wanted to mention that I use a rubber curry brush on Mags. Bought it in a horse/riding supply store for about $5 twelve years ago. It looks brand new and still works like a charm. What's nice is that it has what seems like a handle so it stays on your hand quite easily as you brush. That is the only thing I have ever used on her -- she loves the feeling -- expect it is like a massage. Of course, the occasional liver treat (can you say "bribe") helps! I seem to recall that I saw one in a pet supply catalogue not too long ago.

Judy, I have that.... it's great, but I think it's partly a psychological issue with me. If I don't feel the brush gets to the skin, it's like it doesn't do the work! I do use the brushes gently of course.... /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Also wanted to mention that, if you think some of the hair loss is due to dryness, you might try adding an Omega 3 supplement to Chloe's daily regimen.
