Long hairs!

This probably belongs in a dog forum, but I don't like to venture in to them much!

I have an English Setter, and he's lovely- really is.

but he gets knots a lot, and I bush him around 3 times a week.

Any ideas of any products I can use to help with this? I used FoxFire mane and tail spray from my grooming kit on his feathers and it made the knots easier, but leaves a really nasty feeling coat on the hairs.

Help appreciated !

Marigold spray or human frizz control serum.

Daily grooming is going to be the most effective "fix"......I like to use my evening tv time to groom both dogs and they absolutely adore that extra "mommy & me" time every day. Our far doesn't "need" it but our mixed breed has a long tangle/knot prone coat and this is the only way to keep his coat in good order

He loves being groomed, but when the comb comes out for the feathers he hates it, we've had him since September and he's better now, its just all the sticky burs and knots he gets xD

Thanks for the advice guys :)

I actually use Cowboy Magic on our pomeranian's hair when it gets matted or tangled....same as with the horses XD
