I would go for a slicker brush and a comb that has swivel teeth and they are different lengths.
I would not have thought a bristle brush would have a lot of impact on a rough collie.

I will post some links in a min.

hi i use a denman bristle brush for everyday grooming, and a pin brush for when they are dropping coat. in severe moults i use a slicker brush. A wide tooth comb is also useful for combing feathering, a smaller width comb for getting knots out behind the ears

Thank you!

Ah yes - that awkward ear area! Legs can be fiddly too! Fortunately she's happy to be groomed, bless her! She tries to lick me when I'm bending down to brush her ruff lol.

All we know is that she's from the Blackpool area.

She's a little nervy and jumpy and obviously head-shy but she's settling down well and coming on in leaps and bounds tbh to say we've only had her for 2 weeks as of tomorrow.
