What To Use A Dog Grooming Comb For?
Each comb should include a description in the product description of what it’s used for.
Some combs are just for removing mats and tangles, whilst some can finish and comb a pet’s coat as well.
Short vs Long Hair Combs
The combs with the longer comb teeth tend to be better for long hair breeds because they can reach down past the surface of the coat to the base of the coat.
But, read the comb product description to confirm.
Combs For Dematting and Detangling
Different combs have differently spaced comb teeth.
Ideally, you want to tease out thicker and bigger tangles and knots with longer and wider spaced comb teeth.
You can then work down to finer and more thinly spaced comb teeth for smaller and thinner knots and tangles.
Combs with fine comb teeth can also help you finish the coat better.
Using Combs With Brushes, Deshedding Tools & Rakes
In addition to a comb, some people may also want to use a deshedding tool or undercoat rake for double coats, thick coats, long coats, large breeds and breeds that shed a lot.
Although a comb can help with dematting and also finishing, it might not be as good for removing loose hairs from a dog’s undercoat (depending on the comb you use).
