Which Grooming Tool Should You Get For Your Dog?

In General

Many owners are satisfied with one of a:

– Slicker brush

– Two sided pin and bristle brush

– Or, a comb

 

Main Uses Of Coat Grooming Tools

Three of the main uses of coat grooming tools might be to:

1. Remove tangles and matting,

2. Remove loose hair from the undercoat or top coat, as well as dirt and debris from the coat, and

3. Finish the coat to make it look more neat, brushed, fine, plush or presentable.

 

What Each Tool Might Do

You be able to remove surface coat hairs and finish your dog’s coat (to look neat) with a slicker brush, and pin brushes and combs with wider spaced pins and comb teeth will also allow you to tease out tangles and matting in a dog’s coat.

Some people might have a dog that doesn’t shed a lot for example, and so, a slicker brush might be best suited for their purposes, which is to have the coat looking more neat and plush.

But, other people who only want to remove shedding or loose hairs.

For dogs that shed a lot, and dogs with an undercoat, deshedding tools and undercoat rakes are designed specifically to remove loose hairs from a dog’s undercoat – especially when your dog is shedding heavily.

So, you may want to get one of these if you have a shedder and/or a dog with an undercoat/double coat.

A shedding blade is also another coat grooming tool that does something different.

Each tool is designed to groom in a different way.

The length/depth, spacing (how far apart or close to each other), and softness/hardness of the pins, bristles, combing teeth or rake teeth can all determine what coat or type of pet a grooming tool might be best suited for

Ultimately – each brush or grooming tool should specify in the product description what coat grooming purpose/use the brush or grooming tool is designed for

The ‘Dog Brush Buyer’s & FAQ Guide’ linked in this guide also has more information on what each dog brush grooming tool is used for and the product descriptions for each tool also have more information.

 

Each Dog Breed Or Individual Dog May Have Different Grooming Requirements 

Each individual dog and dog breed has a different coat, and each owner has different grooming preferences.

Understand the type of coat your dog has, read the product descriptions of the different grooming tools to see what uses and capabilities they are designed to be used for, and pick the tool or tools that are suitable for yours and your dog’s needs.

 

Best Brushes (& Coat Grooming Tools) For Dogs With Different Types Of Hair, Coats & Skin

Different dog brushes and grooming tools can be designed for different types of hair, skin and coats.

Below, we outline which dog grooming tools might be best for each hair, skin and coat type.

Below are dog brushes & grooming tools that might be best for different types of hair, coats & skin – long, short, thick, fine hair, double coats, etc.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Coats That Shed A Lot

A deshedding tool is designed specifically for removing loose hair from dogs that shed a lot, and from the undercoat of a double coated dog.

A good deshedding tool might be the FURminator tool listed above.

Undercoat rakes are also designed for detangling and dematting, as well as removing loose hair from the undercoat.

A good undercoat rake might be the Pat Your Pet Rake listed above.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Long Hair

Long hair can be fine or thick, so this can influence what brush you get.

But, generally, you might want a brush or comb with longer bristles or comb teeth to be able to manage the longer hair.

The Andis comb might be suitable, but also the Hertzko slicker brush or one of the 2 sided pin and bristle brushes listed in the ‘Best Brushes’ guide linked to above could be suitable.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Short Hair

The best brush for dogs with short hair might be a brush with fine bristles, short bristles, and/or or bristles with little spacing between them.

If you the bristles are too far apart or too deep/long, you may have problems properly brushing and getting traction with short hair.

The Hertzko slicker brush might be suitable, or a 2 sided pin and bristle brush with fine and thinly spaced bristles on the bristle side.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Thick Hair

Brushes with longer, and more widely spaced bristles can be better for thicker hair (because there is more space in between the bristles).

Combs with wider comb teeth spacing can also be good for dogs with thick hair.

A 2 sided bristle and pin brush, or the Andis comb could be suitable.

The Hertzko slicker brush could also be suitable.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Matted Hair

A dog with matted hair will do best initially with a grooming brush that can get through their hair and tease out matting.

Initially, to tease out matting and knots, you’ll want to try a rake with longer teeth or curved teeth.

Once you have teased out matting from your dog’s hair with a rake or deshedding tool, you can try finishing the coat with a brush or comb

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Fine Hair

A brush with fine or thinly spaced bristles might be best for dogs with fine hair.

The Hertzko slicker brush might be suitable, but so could a 2 sided bristle and pin brush, or the Andis comb with thinly spaced comb teeth.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Curly Hair

It depends on whether the curly hair is thick or thin, and long or short.

It also depends on what sort of finish you want for your dog’s coat.

But, a slicker brush, 2 sided brush, or a comb should work well for curly haired dogs.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With A Double Coat, Or An Undercoat

A deshedding tool like the FURminator, or an undercoat rake like the Pat Your Pet Rake might be best for double coats, or dogs with an undercoat.

They are designed to reach into the undercoat to remove shedding or loose hairs.

 

Best Brush For Dogs With Sensitive Skin

If your dog has a skin or health condition – speak to your dog’s vet first for their advice.

But, you might want to be aware that there are brushes available specifically with soft bristles might be good for dogs with sensitive skin.

One example is the Hertzko Soft Pet Brush (on Amazon).

 

Best Brush For Small, Medium & Large Dogs

Some brushes are a one size fits all brush.

Other brushes come in different sizes for different sized dogs – larger and wider brushes for large dogs, and smaller and more narrow brushes for smaller dogs.

When you go to order a grooming tool – check the sizing and make sure it’s suitable for your dog.
