Best Grooming Tips

Slicker Brush

  • Brush against the growth of the hair first with a slicker brush and then with a medium or wide-toothed comb. (Be careful as to not damage the skin, slicker brushes can be sharp and injure if used too aggressively!)
  • The slicker brush removes all the loose hair and the comb takes care of the tangles.
  • Brush your Dog along the hair growth and make sure you reach the skin as you brush his way.
  • If there is any worry or evidence of fleas, a flea comb should be used next. You will need to go through the entire coat very thoroughly and eradicate all live fleas. (Further treatment will be needed if fleas are present)
  • If your dog’s paw pads are hairy, then clip them using electric clippers. Do not clip the hair in between the pads. Clip only the excess hair.

Brush your Dog’s hairs to prevent it from matting. Matting can be a very painful experience.

Regular brushing untangles the matted hairs in your dog’s coat. Since this is a risky job to do, the best way out is to prevent them from forming in the first place.

Doing this is simple: just brush and comb your Dog regularly. If and when you see any mats or tangles, use a detangle solution and a medium-toothed comb.

Don’t wait until your Dog is dirty or matted to introduce him to grooming. That would make him associate the experience with unpleasantness. Moreover, many dogs learn to see their routine brushing as an alternate form of petting, i.e. another source of affection and attention.
