We have a lab and a brush. The brush has a standard pet shop brush with 2 sides (black brush side and little steel pins side - picture attached). Can anyone tell us:

i) when we brush him, do we use the brush side or the 'pin' side of the brush?
ii) brush with the coat or against?

We don't show him etc, and no problems generally with his coat even if we don't brush him at all, but when we do brush him what is the proper way?

Sorry for such a basic Q but I can't seem to get a definitive answer.

Ummm not doing it for the bonding thats for sure, he's bonded too much already LOL. But I wouldn't mind reducing the amount of his hair all over my house though. I've no idea what a shedding blade, or furminator, or rubber curry is .... I can look it up on the internet but which is the most idiot proof ?

Thanks

Well thanks for the advice. I bought a shedding blade. Seems to work OK, at least he likes it. Except when we use it there are all these clouds of his hair floating around and he keeps trying to catch them in his mouth which is sort of annoying. Also, if I keep brushing more hair just keeps coming, never seems to run out. How do you know when to stop? How long do you usually do it for?

Thanks in advance.
