Grooming At Home
To keep your dog in top condition between salon visits, there are a few items you
can use at home:
A) Slicker Brush B) Comb C) Fragrance Spray
The slicker brush needs a little practice to use! First, brush the slicker up and
down the inside of your own arm - it should not hurt. When you have the pressure
right, use only this amount on the dog. Brush the body, head and legs / tail in sections.
At the back of the neck, part the coat so you can see the skin. Gently brush from
the skin out. Continue until all back is done; now go over this area with the comb.
Be very careful if any knots or mats are found - gently tease them out. This should
be done at least once a week. Please check with me for your breed as some need more
frequent grooming. Check between the pads for any stone or burs - try to remove (if
you are in any doubt give me a call for further advice).
