The 'Hair-raiser 60'
The Hair-raiser range is available in three widths - the 60, the 80 and the 100. Your choice of Hair-raiser will be determined by a number of factors, for example, the size of the animal, the area to be groomed, the density of the coat, the time you have available for grooming, the price you want to pay. The Hair-raiser 60 is the narrowest comb in the range and is typically the optimum choice for smaller animals (including rabbits, ferrets and rodents) up to and including cats.
The range of dog breeds of a suitable size for the Hair-raiser 60 would typically be those up to, and including, springer spaniels. Of course you could use the Hair-raiser 60 to groom dogs up to the size of labradors - but using a relatively narrow comb on a relatively large dog will of course take longer than grooming with the more appropriately-sized Hair-raiser 80. (If you're using a Hair-raiser 60 to groom a dog the size of a German Shepherd then you should be seriously considering trading up to at least a Hair-raiser 80, or more probably a Hair-raiser 100; they cost a few pounds more but will speed up the job dramatically!)
If you're really undecided about which of two widths to choose, we'd suggest you choose the narrower width; although inevitably slower, it will be easier to use as you navigate around the nooks and crannies. If you later decide a wider comb would be more effective, by then you'll have a queue of people who'll have seen the results and will welcome your old comb!
The 13 widely-set teeth of the Hair-raiser 60's rake comb are individually - and robustly - set into the casement.
Almost 60 (yes, they've actually been counted!) finely-set teeth comprise the de-shedding comb, precision-engineered from a single piece of stainless steel and extending to the full 3 inches (7.5 cms) width of the head of the comb (in use, this seems to be just about the perfect grooming width for smaller animals). The close set of the teeth ensure that there is no collection wastage when the dead hair is combed out.
As the comb head is flipped between combs, the chosen set of teeth lock firmly into place.
The Hair-raiser© 60 measures 3 x 7.5 inches (7.5 x 19.5 cms) and, weighing 5 ounces (150g), feels reassuringly substantial in the hand.
The packaging of each Hair-raiser© 60 contains detailed information on ways to maximise its usefulness on your animal.
