When bath time comes you must remember to use a shampoo and also a conditioner.  By using both helps remove the dirt and also prevent tangles that do happen often in long hair breeds.

Tools that are also useful for dog grooming are brushes, combs and rakes.  You will need these tools to detangle your dogs hair.  By using the proper tools will help stop some huge tangles in the future.

Brudhing your dogs hair removes dust, dead skin, loose hair, and also tangles.  By brushing your dog in the spring and fall helps them shed the extra coat.  There are special brushes that your groomer will use on your dog.  The brushes that they use cover larger matted areas and they have sharper short bristles. 

Drying the dogs hair is a must after they have been groomed.  You need to have a hair dryer if you are planning to groom your dog’s hair.  By drying the hair quickly prevents any mattes or tangles that can occur in wet hair.  Fur that is wet will tangle more easily then fur that is dry.
