The Ancol Ergo Pin Palm Pad is a grooming tool that feels natural and comfortable to use while being gentle on your dog's coat and skin. The strap affixes the pad to the palm, meaning your pet is groomed with a simple stroking action, ideal for pets that are nervous about grooming. The pins on the pad penetrate the coat to detangle the fur and remove loose fur. The stainless steel pins have rounded ends to be gentle on your dog's skin. Grooming your pet helps maintain a smooth and glossy coat and is an important way of bonding with them.
