How to use the Dog Slicker Brush ?
- Be sure your dog’s coat is completely dry, especially after a bath. Make your dog in an area where he is comfortable.
- Check to ensure that there are no bruises, sores, and skin conditions under your dog coat. Seek vet treatment if needed.
- Start with your dog’s neck, back, sides, stomach, and tail. Brush gently from head to tail or top to bottom in the same direction.
- Don’t brush against the grain, as it can hurt your dog. Use long gentle strokes and slowly removing as much fur as possible.
- Don’t press too hard against your dog skin especially the stomach area to avoid scratches or skin irritations.
- Don’t go over areas too often, unless they are very thick coats or with mats and tangles.
- After finish brushing, reward your dog with his favorite treat. Finally, always clean your brush after use to avoid clogging.
If you need to remove frequent tough knots, mats & tangles from your dog coats, you may want to consider the Dog Deshedding Brush Rake.
