Untangler Hand Brushes are very effective tools for bringing dirt and loose hair to the surface on smooth-coated dogs. The soft fingers with rubberized feel increase circulation, stimulating natural oil production keeping skin and coats healthy.
Hand Brushing is very relaxing to both you and your pup. Use long strokes when brushing and follow the grain of the coat. Excellent brush for bath time as well!
Do dogs feel better after being brushed?
Regular grooming relaxes the dog who’s used to it, and it becomes a special time that you can both share. A coat free of mats, burrs and tangles and skin free of fleas and ticks are as comfortable to your dog as fresh, clean clothes are to you. It makes you feel good, and the effect is the same for your pet.
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.
Preparation: Working to avoid pulling tail hair and making your dog comfortable with having their tail brushed will be necessary to get your dog’s full cooperation in the tail brushing procedure.
Wrap hand around tail grab the base of your dog’s tail, hold the tail bone in your hand with your thumb on one side, and wrap your fingers around so that the dangling hair lays on your splayed fingers.
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.
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.
Work out mats when you encounter a tangle or mat, use a mat splitter, fingers or small Untangler pet comb to gently work out mat or snarls. Continue holding and supporting the tail.
Finish brushing and then use a small Untangler Comb to locate any knots you missed.
