Best Untangler Tools for Grooming Heavy Coats

Heavy Coats; a combination of long, thick, silky hair and some short, smooth hair. Prone to mats, knots and tangles this coat type requires daily and weekly brushing.

Breeds Include: German Shepherds, Alaskan Husky, Akitas, Alaskan Malamute, Keeshond, Pomeranian, Samoyed, Old English Sheepdog, Shetland Sheepdog, Newfoundland, Golden Retriever, Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Chow Chows, Rough Collie, Pekingese, Border Collies and many others

Shedding is completely normal and no need to worry unless you notice bald spots, hot spots or any kind of irritations on your dog’s skin.  You may need to get advice from your veterinarian as to what is causing the problem.  Many dogs develop allergies over time and your vet can run tests to find the culprit.  Fleas, ticks, and parasites will also cause skin irritation and excess shedding.  

Do not bathe your dog until you removed all of the loose undercoat and matted hair.  Bathing a dog that is matted and has a heavy loose undercoat will only make things worse by tightening the hairs making it almost impossible to brush out.  Once you have your dog all brushed out you can give him/her a bath. Bathe at least once a month, but no more than once a week.  A lot will depend on your dog’s coat and skin condition as to how often he/she will need a bath.

Special Info on Brushing the Dogs Tail

Many owners are not familiar with how to brush out their dogs tail and are leery of hurting their dog by handing his or her tail, which is part of the dog’s spine. Done carefully, there are several options for brushing your dog’s tail so that it looks great and protects your dog’s delicate tail area.

From a dog’s perspective most dogs are not super crazy about having their tails touched or handled–they definitely don’t want the hair on their tail pulled! Dogs may be sensitive, because tails often get injured by being slammed in doors, or stepped on, so they are nervous of having them handled. Also, the tail is part of your dog’s spine and a sensitive body part they will try to protect.

STEP 2:

Depending on your preference, select the Untangler Pro Brush. Brush from root to tip of the section of the tail you are holding, with hair laying against your fingers to prevent hair from moving and to support hair and tailbone so pulling of hair is at a minimum.

STEP 3:

Work each section move your hand down the tail as you complete brushing each section, moving down to the tip of the tail. Continue holding the tail bone with hand and thumb and resting fanned tail hair against splayed fingers as you brush each section.

STEP 4:
