Hogyan kell kefélni egy kutyát?
Conditions to be observed when combing:
- The brush should be matched to the type of your pet’s coat, in addition, its teeth should be shorter than the dog’s coat;
- The combing process should be delicate: too aggressive movements can irritate the dog’s delicate skin;
- It is necessary to comb in the direction of hair growth;
- The whole body of the dog should be combed, even if the hair on the legs and neck is of different lengths;
- A dog accustomed to the procedure is combed from the head, moving towards the tail, and from the back to the ends of the paws, and the “newbie” is allowed to enjoy the order that is comfortable for him.

How often to brush?
Daily gently and twice a week thoroughly.
Natural bristle brush, massage mitt; some owners wipe the pet with a flannel cloth to add shine to the coat. Twice a week, you need to use a metal comb, “pulling out” dead hairs.
The hair of these dogs, at first glance, is the easiest to care for, but it is they who, without regular brushing, leave hair all over the house more actively than others. This can be especially noticeable during the molting period. If the dog is very small (for example, a toy terrier), then it is enough to wipe it with a damp cloth.
Medium haired dogs
Combing is optimally twice a week, but during the molting period, this will have to be done as often as possible.
Comb and comb with medium or soft rubber bristles. Some owners use a furminator, but breeders do not recommend doing this – it can disrupt the structure of the outer (cover) hair.
On the paws of dogs with short hair, thick “tails” can sometimes still form. It is worth paying special attention to them.

Light combing to prevent tangles is done daily, but thorough combing no more than once a week. Exception: the molting period, when the pet will have to be combed every day.
A comb with long teeth, a slicker comb, a comb with a curved surface.
First you need to grab a bunch of dog hair near the base of the hair with a comb, then comb through the thick coat in layers with a soft comb with thick teeth.
Wirehaired dog breeds
(schnauzer, kurtshaar, fox and airedale terrier)
Dogs of many rough-haired breeds have a beard that is trimmed after each meal. But they have no molt at all. This means that the procedure for plucking dead hairs is carried out twice a year. Some owners occasionally use a slicker – there is no need for this for the dog itself, but this way the pet looks more presentable.
Metal single-row comb with rounded teeth, slicker comb, trimmer.
You can even pluck out dead hair (or trim) with your fingers, and this does not cause discomfort to the dog. But trimming requires patience from the owner: it can take about an hour. Therefore, many owners of such dogs turn to specialist groomers, since this procedure does not need to be carried out so often.
At the age of 5-9 months, behind the ears and above the tail of the pet, the hair will have to be sorted out every day. Further throughout life, weekly grooming at the ends of the ears and separation of the cords about once every 2-4 weeks will be required.
Only with fingers, but in rare cases a special strand separator is required
When grooming these dogs, it is necessary to separate the hair and twist the curls in the right direction to avoid sticking to each other and the formation of layers.
