If you can brush them with that brush, you shouldnt have a hard time brushing them with the other brushes :)
For picking up there feet, can they pick up there feet where they trained for it ?
If not, work slowely, like rub them from there neck and start going down there leg, if they stand still and allow it than praise them.
When you can get far enough squeeze the tendon I believe on the back of there leg and they should lift it, if not squeeze the chestnut, it irritates them and they lift up their feet.
If they try to put there foot down, don't let them keep it up and when you are finished slowely and gently put the foot down.
