Factors to Consider in Choosing the Best Dog Brush

 

Coat Type

To know what dog brush is most suitable for your dog, you must assess its coat type. With the many dog breeds that there are, there is also a wide variety of coat types. Some brush combs are specifically made for a coat type. For example, steel-pin brushes are more suitable for Yorkshire Terriers and other breeds with long hair. Meanwhile, a fine wire slicker brush is better for curly haired dogs like the Poodle.

 

Issues to Be Addressed

Are you buying a dog brush with the sole purpose of grooming your dog? Or are the knots, dirt and shedding driving you crazy that you had to head to the nearest shop this morning only to be faced with a gazillion of dog brush options? Know which issues are your priorities to solve and look up which dog brush would do just the job you need.

 


Conclusion

Generally, there are six types of dog brushes. If you have more than one dog, you can find a dog brush that could solve the problems that all your dogs are facing. The slicker brush works best with all coat types and is recommendable for owners with a variety of dogs.

Your furry friend deserves all the grooming it can get, and both of you will benefit from it.
