Grooming your Doggo’s coat is important for eliminating tangles and maintaining their skin and coat healthy. There are plenty of brush and comb options to choose from and you might find yourself a bit overwhelmed. We’ve created this simple guide to help you pick the tool which best suits your Doggo’s needs.
DOGGOS WITH SHORT COATS
Brush with soft bristles is ideal for dogs with short and sleek hair as it helps spreading their natural oils, adding a shine to their coat and remove any loose hairs. If your dog has a short, but thick coat, a pin brush with stainless steel tips and pin ends might be a great option to comb through their coat, helping to remove loose hair and any tangles. On top of that, your Doggo will be pleased with massaging effect this kind of brush offers ;)
We recommend for: Beagle, Chihuahua, Dachshund, Italian Greyhound, Labradors, Pugs and similar breeds.
DOGGOS WITH MEDIUM TO LONG HAIR COATS
It’s necessary to brush your dog’s hair regularly to avoid knots and tangles and to remove any loose hair and undercoat effectively. For this purpose, we use a slicker brush, which has fine, wire bristles and is usually angled with protective nubs to avoid any damage to dog’s skin. Slicker brush is perfect to pair with an undercoat rake for dogs with thick coat to further remove loose hairs and dead undercoat as rake tools are designed with small blades placed closely together.
Grooming comb with long teeth is ideal for dogs with curly, thick and/or wooly coats as it allows you to brush through the hair and untangle any knots safely.
We recommend slicker brushes for: Australian Shepard, Cocker Spaniel, Doodles, St. bernard amd similar kind of dogs
Undercoat Rakes are a perfect option for doublecoated breeds like Australian and German Shepard, Golden Retrievers, Great Pyrenees, Pomeranians and Sheepdog
Keep in mind that all the above mentioned grooming tools need to be used gently to prevent any discomfort or harm to your furry buddy :) We hope this was helpful in guiding you into right direction when choosing the best option!
