Rough or smooth coat? I have a smoothie, and use the zoom groom rubber curry to loosen up and dead hairs, then finish with the slicker brush.
I would caution against the FURminator, I work in a grooming salon and while we absolutely LOVE the shampoo/conditioner (mostly the conditioner, any shampoo would work just as well) especially combined with a HV dryer it works wonders! But we've found that the FURminator brush tends to hurt dogs if used for any amount of time because of the sharp teeth which irritates the skin, it also cuts the hair instead of taking out the undercoat and we don't use them anymore for that reason. I always suggest to people a zoom groom or an undercoat rake depending on what type of coat their dog has.Furminator is what I use on our collie.

Hope it works for you then. I'd still caution against it and would only use it for short periods of time and keep an eye on the skin for irritation.Our well qualified groomer suggested it.

Thanks for that tip. I have a border-collie-ish dog. So I am reading.@jclark343 mentioned something I totally forgot about! Make sure to use a comb after whatever brush you use. I can't tell you how many times we have dogs come in that are matted and the owner brushes them everyday, but without a comb you are missing an entire layer of hair.
