Once your dog returns from having a grooming session with us, you’ll want to keep up their coat with regular brushing. The Animal Humane Society recommends brushing your dog every couple of days no matter how long the coat is. Regular brushing helps remove dead hair and skin, distributes natural oils throughout for a cleaner and healthier coat, and stimulates the skin’s surface.
Different dog breeds have different coats, of course, which can change how you brush your pet. It also means that different coats require different tools for brushing.
Here are some tips on brushing your dog based on the type of coat they have:
You’ll want to start by identifying which type of coat your dog has. There are several types to choose from:
Another important factor to keep in mind is how many layers of fur the dog has. Dogs can have multiple layers, which can radically alter how they need to be brushed. For instance, double coats on a dog can mean needing special brushes or combs. These are designed to get at both layers of the coat to get rid of loose and dead hair.
Dogs have different coats as puppies than they’ll have as adults. The technical term for a puppy growing into his adult coat is known as “shedding a coat,” according to the American Kennel Club (AKC).
Puppies come into their adult coats between 4 to 6 months on average, though it can be different for each breed.
A main difference between a puppy coat and an adult coat is that puppies have a single coat of fluffy, down-soft fur, and this coat will later turn thicker and stiffer. Different breeds will grow their distinctive adult coats. For instance, double coat dogs will grow two layers of fur, while single coat dogs will just grow their adult fur.
You can check sites like the AKC to see what type of coat you will be brushing as your puppy grows and when to expect that adult coat. This gets harder for a mixed breed, however.
When in doubt, check with us and we are happy to advise you!
Tip: When first brushing your puppy or new dog, start slow. Let the dog smell and see the brush. Then brush while giving treats and praise. Keep the sessions short and increase the time as your puppy or dog becomes more relaxed during brushing.
If you’ve been to the pet store, you may be baffled by the sheer amount of different types of pet brushes for sale. But certain tools are best for certain coats. Here’s what we recommend:
Your brush technique will depend on the type of brush you are using. Make sure to read the instructions on the brush carefully.
