4Using Dog Brushes

Dog Brushes

By eliminating debris, distributing natural oils throughout your pet’s coat, minimizing tangles, and keeping her skin clear and irritation-free, regular brushing or combing can help keep your pet’s hair in good condition. Additionally, when your pet is being groomed, you should check for fleas and flea dirt—those little black specks that show your pet is harboring a flea family.

The kind of your pet’s coat will determine how you should brush him or her and how frequently.

Short, Silky Coats

You just need to brush your dog once a week if it has a silky, short coat like a Chihuahua, Boxer, or Basset Hound. Use a bristle brush to remove dead hair after using a rubber brush to remove dirt and dead skin. With a little polish with a chamois cloth, your low-maintenance dog will sparkle!

Dense, Short Fur

Once a week of brushing is sufficient if your dog has short, thick hair that is prone to matting, like that of a retriever. Remove knots with a slicker brush and remove dead hair using a bristle brush. Remember to comb her tail as well!

Silky, Long Coats

Your dog will require regular maintenance if she has a long, rich coat like a Yorkshire terrier. You’ll need to use a slicker brush to eliminate knots every day. Next, use a bristle brush to brush her coat. Follow the directions above, but additionally make sure to comb through the fur and clip the hair around the feet if your dog has a long coat like a collie’s or an Afghan hound’s.

Matted long hair that is often

To avoid mats and eliminate tangles, it’s a good idea to establish a daily grooming practice for dogs with long hair. Brush your pet with a bristle brush after using a slicker brush to gently pull out knots. Try cutting the hair if the matting is especially deep, being careful not to touch the skin.
