HOW TO SELECT THE CORRECT COMB OR BRUSH FOR THE TEXTURE OF HAIR THAT YOUR DOG HAS !!!

DOG COATS COME IN A WIDE RANGE OF TYPES AND TEXTURES SOFT, SILKY, FINE, DENSE, COARSE, STRAIGHT, OR CURLY HAIR AND CAN VARY IMMENSLEY EVEN BETWEEN PETS OF THE SAME BREED.

FOR SHORT HAIRED BREEDS SUCH AS BEAGLES, OR DALMATIONS ETC. USE RUBBER OR BRISTLE BRUSH

SOFT RUBBER BRISTLES WILL PULL OUT LOOSE HAIR BRISTLE BRUSH WORKS BEST WHEN USED WITH THE LIE OF THE COAT, BRISTLES MOVE THE OILS FROM THE SKIN TO THE HAIR SHAFT AS YOUR BRUSH IS LEAVING A SHINNY SMOOTH COAT.  A MEDIUM/FINE COMB WORKS LIKE A COMB ON YOUR OWN HAIR CATCHING AND PULLING OUT LOOSE HAIR AND DIRT.

FOR LONG HAIRED DOGS - SUCH AS BICHONS, KERRY BLUE TERRIERS ETC. A SLICKER BRUSH SHOULD BE USED TO UNTANGLE AND REMOVE LOOSE HAIR, PIN BRUSH ONLY IF THERE'S NO MATS.

DEPENDING ON HAIR TYPE CHOOSE A MEDIUM/COARSE OR COARSE COMB IF PET IS SERIOUSLY MATTED A MAT COMB OR SPLITTER MAY BE NEEDED. A CURVED SLICKER BRUSH WITH STIFF PINS WILL UNTANGLE THE HAIR MORE EFFECTIVELY AND WILL PULL OUT MORE UNDERCOAT  BUT WILL ALSO REQUIRE MORE CARE IN ORDER TO NOT BRUSH-BURN THE PET.

BREEDS WITH LONG SILKY COATS A SLICKER BRUSH ( OR IF THERE ARE NO MATS A PIN BRUSH )

SHOULD BE USED ALONG WITH A MEDIUM/COARSE OR A COARSE COMB TO CHECK FOR ANY MATTING IN THE COAT, FOR SERIOUS MATTING PROBLEMS TRY A MAT COMB OR A LONG PIN RAKE.

FOR DOUBLE COATED BREEDS A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT BRUSHES CAN BE USED  !!!!!

A WIRE SLICKER TO PULL OUT LOOSE HAIR, A PIN BRUSH TO UNTANGLE AND SMOOTH OR AN UNDERCOAT RAKE OR A MAT COMB TO HELP THIN OUT THE UNDERCOAT. A MOULTING COMB CAN ALSO BE USED TO REMOVE LOOSE HAIR AND TIDY UP THE OUTER COAT DEPENDING ON THE HAIR TYPE A MEDIUM/FINE OR A MEDIUM/COARSE COMB SHOULD ALSO BE USED.

SPORTING BREEDS SUCH AS SETTERS, SPANIELS ETC.

A PIN BRUSH CAN BE USED TO UNTANGLE SLIGHTLY MATTED COATS AND A WIRE PIN SLICKER BRUSH WILL REMOVE LOOSE , DEAD HAIR MEDIUM/COARSE OR COARSE COMB CAN BE USED TO UNTANGLE AND NEATEN THE COAT  IF THE COAT IS SERIOUSLY MATTED OR TANGLED YOU MAY NEED TO USE A MAT COMB OR A LONG PIN RAKE.

JUST ALWAYS REMEMBER TO BE VERY GENTLE IT DOESN'T FEEL GOOD TO GET YOUR HAIR PULLED OUT.
