Best Untangler Tools for Grooming Wire Coats

Wire coat breeds have a soft, dense undercoat over majority of body and wire coat over entire body. Soft undercoat will seasonally shed in cooler climates.  To keep coat in natural texture, washing your dog in a Coarse Coat shampoo. Use a conditioner if you want to soften coat.

Longer coats can form mats, knots and tangles and should be brushed/combed, hand-plucked or hand stripped every four to eight weeks. 

Breeds Include: Airedale Terrier, Australian Terrier, Border Terrier, Cairn Terrier, Dandie Dinmont, Fox Terrier – wire, Irish Terrier, Lakeland Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, Norfolk Terrier, Parsons Russel, Scottish Terrier, Sealyham Terrier, Welsh Terrier, West Highland White, Affenpinscher, Brussels Griffon, German Wirehaired Pointer, Spinone Italiano, Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, Dachshund- wire haired, Ibizan – wire haired, Irish Wolfhound, Otterhound, Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, Scottish Deerhound, Giant Schnauzer, Standard Schnauzer and others.

Some wiry haired dog breeds have a less harsh variety of wiry hair than others, but it’s still best advised to follow the same grooming practices in to help keep their skin and coat healthy.

There are a range of benefits that come with owning a dog with a wiry coat including:

  • Less shedding – unlike many other dog’s they don’t shed their coat which means less of those pesky dog hairs around the house.
  • Hypoallergenic – since they don’t shed hair, they are a great choice for anyone who is allergic to dogs
  • More protection – their wiry coat provides them with a barrier of protection against plants and other rough objects when out walking.

Best Untangler Grooming Tools for Wire Coats


It’s common for wiry dog coats to become tangled, especially around hard to reach areas such as the armpits. Use Untangler T716PC to wiggle out matted hair.  Untangler rotating teeth help unmatt the without causing painful pulling. When using the comb be gentle and focus on the end of the hairs first, working your way down and closer to the skin. 

Although a wiry haired dog breed does not need the same day to day maintenance that many longer haired breeds require, it’s still important that you keep a regular brushing routine. Use Untangler T906Pro Brush for regular routing brushing.  Untangler Rotating teeth enable you to wiggle out dead hair resting in the Coat.   

Many Groomers prefer Untangler T861RK Long Rake and T865RKL Rakes to remove any debris or dead hairs that may be resting on the skin. Untangler Rakes work well to clean debri and dirt build up on wire haired coats.

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.

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. 

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.
