I've been battling with this for quite some time now and need a better solution. My dog works most of the day out on our land which has a lot of burrs. She is an Australian Shepherd and has medium length hair. By the end of the day she usually has a good amount of burrs stuck in her coat. The other day it had to be over 100. Alot of the burrs get buried right up against her skin. My only option is to cut them out. This has worked as she is a working dog so missing patches of hair here and there isn't a big deal. This does take a lot of time daily. She doesn't enjoy getting those burrs out (nor do I) and can hardly sit still. The other day when attempting to cut out a clump of burrs right up against her skin on the underside of her leg I accidently cut a bit of skin off as well. I feel really bad and don't want to do it again. What I'm looking for is a better solution to get the burrs out. The burrs are not going anywhere nor are we. I've heard of the Mars Coat King tool. I've even thought of a jacket but think she will overheat. Any suggestions to make this easier on the both of us?
