If you are trying to minimise shedding or your dog is prone to matting, make regular brushing part of their care routine. A good brush can reduce unwanted shedding; consider these pointers when shopping:
A: If your dog's hair tangles, it is best to brush it before the bath. Once the hair gets wet, it will snarl even tighter, making it challenging to remove mats and tangles. Even if the hair is not tangled, it is helpful to brush it thoroughly outside before the bath to remove loose hairs. If you brush your dog before a bath, follow up with a good brushing after the hair is dry to ensure the coat is tangle-free and to remove further shed hair. If you can, brush your dog daily to remove shedding hair, untangle knots, and redistribute coat oils. If you cannot, once a week is sufficient for most breeds.
A: Brushing is a pleasurable bonding activity that most dogs enjoy, especially when brushing early in puppyhood. If your dog doesn't enjoy being groomed, give them lots of tasty treats and praise during brushing sessions to help them form a positive association with the activity. Ensure you groom them regularly to avoid mats and tangles, as trying to brush a tangled coat is uncomfortable and even painful for the dog. If your dog’s coat matts too much to brush, seek help from a professional groomer and consider shortening their hair to a manageable length.
