Coat Grooming

To make sure your puppy always looks as cute as he did the day you brought him home, make sure you buy grooming supplies that are well-suited to his particular coat.

For shorthaired breeds, use a brush with natural bristles, a rubber currycomb or a hand mitt.

For longhaired breeds, you’ll want a sturdy wide-toothed metal comb, and perhaps a mat splitter.

No matter what your dog’s hair type, though, be sure to buy him a flea comb and establish a regular grooming routine as early as possible.
