Choosing the right breed of dog for your lifestyle is very important as, if you chose a coated breed e.g., a Cocker Spaniel, Bichon Frisé or poodle, you will have to spend a certain amount of time each day brushing and combing the coat. If it gets wet it must be thoroughly dried and combed, as it will felt if left. A short lesson from your groomer is always an advantage. Nearly every dog requires a slicker brush and comb. The slicker is a brush with a rounded head and bent pins.
Grooming spray helps to prevent, not remove tangles and should be used at every grooming session.
