This Rubber Curry Brush is great for our little dogs! It measures 5 inches by 3 1/2 inches and the bristles are just 3/8 inch long. The bristles (right) are uniquely designed for removing loose hair and distributing the natural oils in your small dog's coat. The Rubber Brush has a built-in strap handle that's close to the brushing area, so your little dog won't be intimidated by a big disembodied brush coming at her! And the bristles are flexible, for a good massage.
