Getting Started

When you are first learning how to groom and brush your dog, it is important that you stay calm and patient. Learning any new skill can be challenging. When you couple that with a pet who may or may not want to learn along with you, you can see how this job could get frustrating rather quickly. If you do feel that you are getting frustrated while trying to brush your dog, stop, and come back to it later. The important thing is that you keep trying until you and your dog find a good groove.

If you struggle too much with pet grooming to provide your animal with proper grooming, you should consider hiring a professional groomer. Hiring a professional will ensure that your pet is getting the proper care.

The Importance of Brushing

Brushing your dog regularly is essential because it is really the only way to remove dead hair and skin. Brushing is also necessary to distribute the natural oils found on the dog’s skin throughout the fur. These oils are an essential part of a healthy coat. Brushing will also stimulate the skin to ensure healthy growth of new skin cells.

Another reason why brushing is important is that it gives you a valuable opportunity to check your pet for parasites like ticks and fleas.

How Often To Brush

Dogs should be brushed every few days, no matter how long or short the fur is. If your dog has long fur or has become matted, you may want to brush more often to keep the coat nice.

Brushing Basics

It is important that you choose the right brush for the type of fur you are brushing. Some brushes are designed for general brushing, while others are for long fur or short fur.

If your dog needs to have mats removed or of having a dead layer of fur removed, you will need a brush specially designed for it.
