There are hundreds of options when it comes to selection of appropriate brushes according to the length of your dog hair. For short hair dogs, use short toothed comb and a curry comb. For medium -length breeds with undercoat, use Dematting combs and slicker brushes. For Doodle type of dogs, use a pin brush and a slicker or straight comb. For long hair dogs, use a double rake, straight comb and/or slicker.
- Use recommended shampoo and conditioner
While on a long travel, the fur of your dog is bound to get dirty. Use an all-natural shampoo and conditioner for dogs, not humans. You can also consult the veterinarian to recommend you good brands for the same.
- Rinse your dog well
After applying shampoo and conditioner, rinse your pet well with lukewarm water. You do not want your dog to be irritated by the leftover shampoo behind his ears or the ignored places. Make sure you remove all the shampoo by rinsing the dog well.
