I use a regular comb on all my dogs. I push the hair up the wrong way and then comb row by row the right way. The under coat comes right out. Koby's really hard because his coat is so thick, but brushes don't work well on any of my dogs.

I really like my furminator, I use it once a week when blowing coat and it takes out a lot of undercoat. (look on ebay for a deal. I paid $15. including shipping.)

I also use a coat rake and a pin brush, the furminator can be harsh but it removes the undercoat that seems to be matting. (I have that problem too)

Thanks everyone for your input. We just don't understand how one can be blowing her coat normally (Mika) and the other who has the same coat and hasn't had an issue before(Kai) can suddenly develop a problem. He is my third Akita in 16 years and this is the first time this has happened. We really appreciate all of the suggestions and input and are certainly going to try them. Thanks Again!wave
