Short Haired Dogs
Short haired dogs typically don’t require much in the way of coat care; with a very dense coat they do not need more than two or three brushes a week. Of course, within the breeds there are different characteristics of the fur that will stipulate whether you should brush them more or less. For example, the Chihuahua, despite being a dog with short fur, tends to shed quite a bit and therefore needs to be brushed more frequently than other short-haired dogs like Dalmatians or Boxers, which don’t shed as much. The best dog brush short hair is one that takes care of shedding since that is is going to be one of the main reasons you want to keep a regular brushing routine.
Dogs with Medium Length Fur
Dogs with medium length fur, such as the German Shepherd, the Border Collie or the Golden Retriever, require a little more coat care than short-haired dogs. They require a minimum of four brushings per week. Again, it will depend on your dog and you may find your require more or less brushing time.

Tips for Using the FURminator
One of the biggest challenges owners face when trying to de-shed their dog is that they allow the undercoat to build up and before trying to remove it, and that results in trying to remove too much of the fur at once.
Since the teeth on the FURminator are fine and so close together it takes a lot strokes to remove loose undercoat fur, especially if your dog is a breed with a thick undercoat. That kind of repeated brushing can be irritating to your dog’s skin. Instead, you should do smaller brushing sessions more frequently.
We recommend that you brush for 5-7 minutes 2-3 times per week during shedding seasons, and once a week during the rest of the year.
The undercoat is also much easier to remove on dogs who are clean, conditioned, and dry – however, never use a Furminator on a wet dog, that will only rip and tear at their coat.
