In a broad sense, there are three types of dog brush: slicker, bristle and wire-pin.
*Medium or Long coats with Flowing Hair (Setters, Spaniels, Golden Retrievers etc) - For this type of coat, a wire-pin brush is useful for general maintenance. You can also use a soft bristle brush with wide bristles. Slicker brushes are great for getting rid of mats.
*Long and Thin Coats (Maltese, Yorkshire Terrier) - For these breeds, use a soft slicker brush to prevent mats and tangles, along with a wire-pin brush for daily maintenance.
