|This really depends on the type of coat. Many, many breeds have an undercoat but the brushes I use on my Siberians are not the same as the brushes my friend uses on her Aussies.
Shedding blades are really only good for short, dense fur like a Siberian, German Shepherd, or Lab. Even then, it's arguable how good they are for the fur itself - you can break guard coat and take out too much undercoat. My guys aren't going to be in any beauty contests, though, so it's fine for us as long as I'm careful. For a dog with longer fur, a shedding blade will only break guard hairs, get tangled up and possibly aggravate mats under the guard coat while removing minimal fur.
A comb is pretty standard for longer fur, but again, exactly what type you get is going to depend on the exact coat type. Slicker brushes too, but again, there are different types and techniques for different coats.
