  3. What Kind of Brush for Pit-Mix?

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Naima's a Pit/Boxer mix, and has a very short, sleek coat. I want to brush her more, so that I don't find quite as much black fur all over my white sheets and blankets, but I'm not sure what to use. Most of the brushes I see for pets in stores look very sharp and metallic, and as if they'd cut...
  4. Advice on How to Groom a Border Terrier/Chihuahua Mix?

    Our dog's a border terrier/chihuahua mix (I've attached a photo of how she looks like). I used to take her to the local groomer, but they always shave her bald that she looks ends up looking like a hairy kiwi. I know border terrier's have an undercoat and to groom them properly, you need to use...
  5. How clean you be?

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Edit: I just noticed I forgot the word "can" from the title. Oops. I actually don't have a dog (yet), but was thinking about it in the future. One (of the many, many) things I was wondering about is cleanliness. Most of the time, when I go to pet a friend or family member's dog, I feel like the...

  9. Best shears for paw fur - straight or curved

    Dog Grooming Forum
    My Golden Retriever Leah nails grow like weeds, as does her paw fur. That means frequent nail trims preceded by trimming of her paw fur. I'm tired of the cheapo shears that are so dull. I want to get a set of professional groomer shears. I'm eyeing the Chis Christensen 5" Artisan Shears. But I'm...

    Dog Grooming Forum
    I have an inuit husky (AKA Canadian Eskimo Dog). I live in western Canada and we've had a very mild winter. The dog is hot with his undercoat designed for very cold temperatures (he has happily chosen to sleep outside in -30 weather). How can I encourage his undercoat to come out? I brush him...

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Hi All! I'm looking to both save money and hopefully bond more with my almost 2 year old sheepadoodle (Old eglish sheepdog and Poodle mix.) We got her 16 months ago and up to this point she's been groomed at a groomer or a mobile groomer. While I really appreciate all our mobile groomer does for...
  12. 6mo old TT thinks grooming is play time; brush is a toy.

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Knowing that at 9 months, Ollie's adult coat will start to come in and the matts will take over, I have been trying to get him acclimated to the pin brush. It's not going so great as he obsessively attacks the brush. I try to distract him with a toy while I brush, but he doesn't fall for that...

  14. Worried about professional groom?

    Dog Grooming Forum
    I've booked my 10 mo puppy to see the groomer next week. She works at our training school and allows owners to be there to give treats etc, which makes me feel a little better. I thought about taking him when he was younger to get him comfortable with the process, but even back then I had this...

    Hi, My name is Italia and as of right now I might as well be dog-less. My APBT is with my parents (family dog) and I am living in CA with some roommates. I plan on getting an Australian Shepherd and though I've already done extensive research on the breed itself and I was hoping to find some...
  16. First not enough shedding, now too much?

    General Dog Forum
    I am definitely a first time dog owner (cue embarrassed face). First I was worried my dog didn't shed enough, now I'm worried she's shedding too much. I know it sounds crazy, but I just want to check to make sure that I am, indeed, just a crazy first time dog owner and that there isn't actually...
  17. Golden doodle Shampoo?

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Hey everyone, I am getting my precious girl soon but need to find out which shampoos to use. I have been told by my allergist that I should be washing my dog very regularly because of my allergies. This is why I am wondering what a good shampoo would be to not irritate the skin. I have been...
  18. Shaving for Different Breeds

    Dog Grooming Forum
    I have been researching ways to keep a dog cool during hot summers, and I have learned that you shouldn't shave a dog for it actually does not help keep them cool, but in fact makes them more susceptible to hotspots, heat stroke, and to different texture in fur. Now, I get that for a husky, or...
