No aspect of home dog grooming requires as much time and regular devotion as brushing. Routine brushing keeps your pet’s hair clean and tangle-free, while keeping his skin healthy by stimulating blood flow, removing dead hair and distributing natural oils.
Dogs with curly or wavy coats are very susceptible to mats and tangles and require daily or every-other-day brushing. It's why they are categorized from moderate to high on the coat maintenance scale. The use of a slicker brush is necessary to remove tangles. When encountering stubborn mats or tangles, use liquid detangler or baby oil, gently massaged into the trouble spot. Remember to gently brush your dog without excessive pulling. And don't forget to brush the tail and feet. A light mist of detangling spray after brushing helps remove loose fur and leaves the dog with a great shine.

Let the mixture cool, then pour it into a spray bottle and shake well. Use it to mist your dog's coat before brushing or after her bath to condition and detangle the coat. Let the coat finish drying; spray and brush again, and your dog will have a shiny, silky and healthy coat. Discard any of the mixture you don't use to avoid bacterial growth, which can occur in mixtures with no preservatives. Store the leftover rosemary water in the refrigerator and use it to make a fresh batch of detangler whenever you need it, or you can use it as a great-smelling hair rinse for yourself!Make the grooming experience tolerable, if not enjoyable for your pet. Reward your dog with praise and small treats while you groom and detangle. Distract your dog with a chew or KONG toy filled with treats like frozen plain Greek yogurt. I also tie combing and brushing with my dogs’ favorite activity: going for a walk. They are willing to have their hair combed when they know they will be rewarded with a trip outdoors.
