How to control shedding on your dog? Brush on a regular basis. One of the most effective ways to keep shedding to a minimum is by brushing pets regularly. You should think about your pet’s coat type and length when choosing tools. For example, pin brushes help remove tangles and dead hair on dogs with long or medium coats. Rubber brushes work well for dogs with short hair. Bristle brushes tend to work with all types of coats. How often pets need brushing also depends on their coat. Long, dense coats require more regular brushing than shorter, thinner coats. Pet owners should also plan on brushing their pets more often when seasonal shedding occurs in spring and fall.
During these times, pets typically shed more fur as their coat changes.
Brushing and bathing at home can help minimize shedding, but some pets need more care than this. Working with a professional groomer can ensure that a pet’s coat is properly taken care of. Professional groomers know which tools to use to remove mats and dead hair on pets. For some pets, this might mean using a grooming tool for excessive shedding. Groomers can also provide pet owners with helpful dog grooming tips to use at home.
