....well, my dog is now 19 months old. I can't say that I devote an hour plus a day to grooming, but for sure, if I don't brush each day to get each bit done then, when we bathe, I'm snarling about the snarls that have developed! (I'd say 15 minutes a day of brushing, then there's the nails and the teeth.)
I bathe once a week at least. It helps, I think, to have a clean coat.
I also think that regular thorough brushing is needed. I am surprised at the trouble spots that develop!!!
2. Neck, where the collar is
3. Under the tail area
4. Under the ears
5. Bonus area...wherever you least expect it!!!
I'm sure there are more surprises in store for me! I love my dog's long coat. When I got Tucker, I thought I'd do a puppy cut, but I appreciate his long coat more and more each week. Now, I am no expert, by a long shot and love the advice on this board. I've also found good advice on youtube.
Good luck with grooming and keep this thread going! I, too am looking for tips and tricks!
....I am going to look at a better comb
....I am researching thinning scissors
....mostly, I welcome any advice!!!!
