Furminator Dogs – Long Hair
Long haired dogs require more attention to their fur since they tend to get tangles, accumulate dirt quicker, and tend to shed more than their short haired cousins. You can help your dog by maintaining his coat health with frequent brushings.
While most brushes will work just fine, choosing the best one for your dog’s fur will make sure their coat stays in tip-top shape. If you have a long haired dog, you already know already what I’m talking about. You cannot prevent your dog from shedding its fur when the seasons change, but you can prevent loose dog fur from going everywhere in your house or on your clothes; the number one way is pretty straightforward: brushing your dog regularly with the FURminator brush.
The FURminator deShedding tool has a fine toothed shedding blade that is effective at removing loose fur from the top coat and undercoat. They are effective and getting rid of excess fur and dander and can be used on all coat types.

When / How Frequently ?
It is very important to help your dog shed his fur. Depending on the length and thickness of his coat, you will need to adapt the frequency of the brushing. We confirmed with several dog specialists (vets, breeders) and they agreed that long haired dogs should be brushed at several times a week (depending on needs, it could be more or less)
You do not need a crazy amount of brushes to take good care of your dog. If you have a long haired dog, the FURminator will serve you well. In any case we hope you understood the importance of brushing your dog. We also hope that you found the perfect brush for your buddy.
