Know it gets better! Just when all of the grooming is all worked into your daily routine and you are really feeling confident in it, heíll need less of it, lol!
You may already be drying along with the combing after his bath, but I didnít always have time to blow dry and I noticed that some of the dematting/detangling sprays really work better with warmth from the dryer. The hair dryer also seems to dislodge loose hair that I didnít even see. Itís so dry where I am I really didnít plan to blow dry because even in the winter he dries on his own super fast. But, it did help more than I expected when he was blowing coat. I personally think it distributes and activates detangling products better, smooths the hair so it tangles less in the days after the bath, and it blows out loose hair. Now that Iíve had more practice, I even think itís faster to dry my Havanese than it is to blow dry my 13 year oldís hair when she asks me to! In the winter I have to bathe him more even though heís outside less, otherwise his legs mat like crazy from the snow. Last winter when he was blowing coat it was something like every 5 days. This year is much better as long as I keep up on his legs, and I did at first, but not so much the last couple of weeks!
