Dem Huskys will produce mountains of fur!!! This brush is what I use...they are for horses, but work great on dogs.

The best comb/brush is the one your dog lets you comb him out with. That means you may try several before you hit the right combination.

Combination being: feels good (or at least not bad) to the dog + gets the dead hair out.

I now have the Evolution brand comb and rake. They have rotating teeth to help prevent pulling on the skin. The teeth are thicker and don't scrape on the skin as much either. I use them on the cats and dogs and all are OK with it to a degree. Looney2 (cat) loves it. Tornado-dog really likes it. Cat-dog is OK with it. And Looney1 (cat) will suffer through it.

I am not sure about exactly your dog but judging from photo I may give general advices I give for Husky owners. As the Husky breed is well prepared for all weather changes - they own double thick coat that perfectly protects the animal from snow and icy wind. The same coat is a good barrier to water, and it is quite common to see a Husky sleeping calmly in the rain, which does not bother him at all. When the animal shakes off, its coat will become dry again. Raindrops roll down the wool without penetrating through it to the skin. When you return with your dog to the house after a rain, just dry his hair with a towel, and there will be no harm to your furniture. When the animal sheds, comb it with a slicker brush or a stiff bristle brush. Then comb through with a medium-toothed comb. Excess undercoat will be removed during shedding.

While they might need as much grooming as other breeds, they do benefit from regular brushing and combing to keep their coat clean and free from impacted undercoat. For my German Shepherd, I have a variety of grooming tools, including a pin brush, a slicker brush, an undercoat rake, and a comb. If you can get one, a forced air dryer is great for helping get loose undercoat out (best done outside).
