We have taken the "guess work" out of selecting a steel tail comb for your Yorkshire terrier. Madan combs are simply the best available. Their design makes them highly durable and this comb has all of the features necessary for the care of your Yorkie's hair. Steel Tail combs (or Rat Tail combs) are a must in any Yorkie owner's grooming kit. The tail of the comb is used for parting the hair on the saddle (down the back) and for parting the hair on the head to create a topknot. The comb itself is great for grooming the facial hair and getting the "gunk" out from around the eyes.
