Because Ginger has both long and short hair, I found that a shedding comb with alternating long and short teeth works best on her shorter fur, and I bought a professional groomers rake for the very, very long fur that she has on her tail. The rake takes out so much of the shed undercoat it is AMAZING.
I now have quite the motley collection of brushes and combs, because I went through SO many different styles before I found the ones that work the best for her.
Personally, I found that the rubber Zoom Groom and the professional groomers rubber curry comb, while they work well due to pulling hair with static electricity, are extremely messy, and I would wind up covered in so much fur after grooming her that I would look like a giant hairball.
With the shedding comb and the rake, I can completely control the mess, and Ginger looks great when I'm finished. She also tolerates these combs MUCH better than any of the brushes, including the rubber ones, as she HATES to be brushed!
