    Fastest way? Cut them out.

    Best way? Work your fingers around them and gently tug.

    Funnest way? Get a Curly, they don't hold the burrs like the Lab hair

    I just pick them out. Even with brushing I still find them.

    I have horses so I have "Show Sheen" hanging around. You drench the hair in that, wait a minute and it combs out super easy. I think there are human products that are similar....super shine type products.

    My morning outing before work is usually on the streets. I recently changed to hiking. This wasn't a big change, I thought, because Layla and I go hiking all the time. The problem with before work is, is that my normal burr pickers (my kids) are asleep when I get home or have just waken up and have to get ready for school. Holy crap! My kids never told me it takes FOREVER to take them all out.

    Is this a Lab? If so, just brush them out. They don't generally stick to a Lab's coat.

    If you do have any that get stuck to their fur, you can use a comb, like a flea comb, or cheapy plastic men's black comb at the drugstore.

    Yep - the Huskies get burrs and we just use a rake brush or fine-toothed comb.

    Layla is a lab mix. Her coat, from what I can tell, is a bit less dense than pure bred labs.

    I use my kids' detangler spray and comb them out gently (on my cavalier spaniels). Burrs don't stick to my labrador.
