Max hasn't anything like the coat your dog has but he would refuse to run through weedy fields because he hated the long grooming session that followed. He has a 'spay' coat with nasty sticky undercoat that doesn't shed well on its own. I did get a 12 tooth MCK and it was amazing, with the sticky damaged undercoat gone seeds don't stick as much. We don't run into horrible stuff like cockleburrs, the seeds and stickers he gets will comb out easily now. Shortening the coat might help too. I experimented with leaving his feet natural but even between the top of his toes a tiny seed would start a mat but since I have been trimming his feet no more mats. My theory is there isn't enough fur length to wrap around the seed now.

I wouldn't use the MCK to pull out burrs but you might consider removing excess undercoat and possibly shortening the hair to a couple inches all over. Whether a MCK is the tool for that or not is your choice. A cheap metal flea comb pulls undercoat very nicely as well but the MCK is faster.
