This video contains some tips on what to look for when buying a slicker brush for long haired dogs
A metal comb is usually combined with a slicker brush as a second time combing. The slicker brush is used for brushing the outer coat while the metal comb is used for brushing the inner coat. However, you should be careful when you use a metal comb because it can be rough and scratch your dog’s skin.
How often should you brush your dog? It varies from breed to breed and dog to dog but there are general rules of thumb. If he has a smooth, short coat, it should be at least once per week with a bristle brush or a quality, 2-in-1 comb. The bristle brush can also be used on dogs with “double coats” (a soft undercoat and weather-resistant outer coat), such as Collies and Huskies. If he has a short, dense coat, brush several times a week with a wire slicker brush. If your dog has a long or silky coat, daily brushing is recommended with a steel pin brush or slicker brush. If he has a wavy or curly coat, use a fine, curved-wire slicker brush several times per week (daily, if time permits).
