Our Big G and Big K series have been dubbed the Groomers’ Miracle Brush from the time and effort it saves removing undercoat, and dematting. These brushes are uniquely designed to save your wrists and arms with the ergonomic handle and curved heads, as well as do more work with each stroke, with the long pins that get deep into the coat to remove mats and loose coat.


  • Large Big G
  • Medium Big G
  • Baby G

The Big G, also known as the Coral Slicker, has densely packed long tooth pins that are made for removing undercoat in densely packed coats. The G in Big G actually stands for Grooming. This brush was designed specifically with professional groomers in mind.


  • Large Big K
  • Medium Big K
  • Baby K

The Big K comes in the same three styles as the Big G – Large, Medium and Baby. The difference in the Big K vs the Big G is that the Big K has 30% less pins than the Big K. This is ideal for dogs that have a cottony coat texture, such as Poodles, or dogs that have extremely thick coats, like Australian Shepherds and Siberian Huskies.

Pro Tip: The choice between the Big G and the Big K comes down to coat texture and type. Typically what is listed above works well for most dogs, however, if you find that the K doesn’t work for your dog try the Big G!
