This unique grooming tool sold through on QVC and is patent protected! Developed by a licensed groomer, it has a bendable grip and firm yet flexible bristles. The inventors are creatively motivated and hope to find a business-oriented buyer to take this product to the next level without having to start from scratch. The hand-held tool is ergonomically designed to easily smooth, de-shed, detangle, and remove knots. Not only can this product be used on dogs and cats of all sizes, but it can be used on all fur and hair types as well as wet or dry!  

Developed to bend to the contours of an animal, the user can reach under legs, around tails, and between ears with ease.  The bristles are painless, of varying heights, and their rounded design prevents scratching or injury to the animal.  The tool is easy to clean and does not have areas for dirt to hide.  Because of its design, it can cut grooming time significantly.  The back of the brush can even be used to remove pet hair from furniture!

This product is ready for a new owner to generate excitement and market to pet owners.  Little marketing has been done, so a new owner’s vision can drive growth in a fresh way. Currently manufactured in China, the owners own the molds and utilize a distribution center in the U.S. to fulfill orders.
