Finding the Best Brush For Your Golden Retriever
The best daily brush for Golden Retriever coat care needs to be designed with soft but strong bristles, ought to be very gentle on your dog s coat, and should be firm against the dog’s skin. To find the best brush for your Golden Retriever, you have to know what kind of coat she has. There are three types of coat sizes and each one requires a different type of brush to properly take care of your dog. Here is a shortlist of the best regular bristle brushes for the Golden Retriever coat.
American Pride Bristle Plush:
These are made out of American Pride’s premium nylon and have a lot of “pens” which are perforations. You simply grab the pin and apply pressure down the plenum with your fingers to remove the dead hair. Then grab a second pin and remove as much hair as you can until the pin is fully free.
Slicker Bristle Brush:
This is one of the best brushes to buy for your golden retriever coat. It has fewer pins than the American pride brush, yet it still takes out enough hair to make the coat look great. The best way to use this brush is to put some dog shampoo in the container and rub the slicker brush against your dog’s neck, shoulders, chest, etc. then rinse and pat your dog’s coat once it is done. You will want to buy the biggest-sized brush you can find that will comfortably handle the number of hairs your dog has.
Pin Brush: This is another great brush to buy.
You will first want to find an inexpensive pin brush and put about two or three drops of nail polish in it. The next thing you want to do is check the label because you want to make sure the brand you are buying is certified by the American Kennel Club.
The last thing you want to do is put the pin brush on your dog’s coat and apply too much pressure, because you may pinch the pin brush and cause bleeding. Once you have applied the nail polish, run your fingers over your dog’s coat for a good feel.
Nail Brush: This type of brush will take care of thicker hair that you might not brush through.
If you are unsure of the direction of your nails, the best advice is to read up on proper nail care. The best time to brush your dog’s nails is when they are sleeping, but you can also brush them when they are awake. Either way, you want to make sure you go through all of their nails and remove all the dead skin.
Slicker Brush: This is the best brush to use on your golden retriever if you want to remove any mats or tangles from her hair or fur.
It is very similar to a mini-nail spa, except you will be using the slicker brush on your dog’s paws instead of his/her claws. To use the slicker brush, put the handle through one of your dog’s hand’s fingers while making sure that the slicker brush is completely covering the entire length of the dog’s hand. The best way to apply the slicker brush is to stroke her paws slowly and gently back and forth. This will loosen up any matted-up hair and will help to remove the matted-up hair quickly.
Soft Bristle Brush: This brush will help remove loose fur and excess skin from your dog’s face.
The best brush to use is the wooden toothbrush. The reason why this brush works so well is that it allows you to clean under your dog’s chin where many brushes won’t be able to reach. It also helps remove loose skin and matted hair from your dog’s back. When using this brush you will want to use light and firm strokes with a circular motion.
Dry Dog Brush: The last type of brush we are going to discuss is the dry dog brush. These brushes have very specific purposes. The first purpose is to get rid of any extra moisture that may be left on your dog’s coat. The second purpose is to remove any dead skin that has become attached to your dogs’ skin. It also helps to prevent excessive dryness around the ears.
