I have a cocker puppy - 5 months old. I have been using this brush on her twice daily for the past 3 months. As she has fluffy, longish hair, the brush does an excellent job capturing any loose hairs and gently combing through tangles. in fact, it has kept our house virtually fur (hair) free as well as our clothing. We are incredibly particular about cleanliness and this brush has truly been our saving grace.
