We play ďHair CombingĒ and cleaning the eyes most mornings sitting on the floor. Fourteen-month old, Patti puppy bites my hands or the comb, while squirming around on the floor. Initially, I purchased cheap combs and brushes because I had spent so much on the dog, ex-pen and other paraphilia. Since, then Iíve purchased Chris Christians combs and a brush. The tiny 006 comb can be used over the whole body if your dog is in a puppy cut. Itís my favorite comb. Itís particularly good for the face, ears and feet. The large 005 comb is great for long hair. The brush is good for smoothing.
Patti is in a short puppy cut, but Iím letting it grow out to a longish puppy cut. Puppy cuts are easy to comb and maintain.
Someone on the forum recommended Warren London Ė Guava- Mangosteen Hydrating Butter Leave In Condition to be used when combing dry hair to keep it from breaking off. Itís good for the dogís skin and coat. I put this all over Patti every time I brush her. It smells good and must taste good as she loves! licking it. In between baths it keeps the hair looking and smelling good. My little one has access to a fence yard and she is in and out many times a day playing with a Golden-doodleÖ rolling around in grass. I, also, use a Freshening Spritz by Hartz which freshens and deodorizes the hair. Keeps the dog smelling good.
I take Patti to the groomer for a bath or groom every other week. I have a grooming table, I use when I occasionally bath her or need to do a little trimming. Pattiís much better on the grooming table at the Groomer than she is for me. :-( During the summer I wonít have access to a groomer and will have to bath and do more trimming Ö which Iím not looking forward to doing.
