Using these tips, you’ll be sure to get all the benefits of grooming your dog on a regular basis. The only thing left is to choose the right brush for your dog!
Here are our 4 top picks – choose yours based on what your dog needs:
This is probably our favorite choice because it is just so versatile. It also seems to do the best job of getting rid of all that excess fur so that it doesn’t end up on your couch or your favorite pair of pants.
It comes in different sizes so that you can choose the one that best suits your dog. The only downside is that it is not a complete tool. That is, it doesn’t handle tangled fur so if you’ve got a dog with tangles, you should brush him with a regular brush before using this.
This handy brush can decrease shedding by as much as 90% if used effectively. It also has two different options: one for short, fine hair and one for medium or long hair. And the best part? They are both the same price. Usually, you have to pay more for the larger brushes.
Another big plus with this brush is that it is one of the most affordable ones on the market. The biggest downside is that it doesn’t have an automatic cleaning function so you have to remove the hair from the brush on your own.
This brush comes in three different sizes so you can choose the right one for your dog’s fur. The best thing about this brush is that it has a combination of different tools so that you can handle tangles, excess fur, and anything else that you encounter.
It’s so versatile, you can even use it for the cat if you’ve got one. We also really like the sturdy handle and the quality of this product. But it is a little bit more expensive than the others because of that. So you have to decide how much you are willing to spend to deshed your pets.
We have to admit that this brush is actually designed for horses. But it just works so amazingly well on dogs, too, that we really recommend it. It can even be used on your furniture to remove the fur that your dog has left all over it!
The only thing to note is that if you’ve got a dog with longer hair, you’re not going to be happy with this brush. Since it was made for horses, it’s designed for shorter hair.
