There is a whole arsenal of brushes, scallops and puhoderok that will help keep the dog’s coat in good condition. But how to navigate in all the variety of accessories?
In order not to hurt the dog, use a comb with blunt teeth, which do not injure the skin. Best of all, when the teeth of the comb rotate. Using this design facilitates combing of matted wool.
If you do not know what length of teeth to choose, be guided by the length of your dog’s coat. The longer the coat, the longer the comb teeth should be. Combs with rare teeth are designed for thick hair, and for short-haired dogs, frequent teeth are more convenient.
If you want to part the hair of your pet or part it, there should be a comb with frequent teeth and a long narrow end in the arsenal.
