Is we use our slicker brush. Now, this is an old one and I like them old because they’re softer I mean this is a real old one. But it seems be about 15 years old and it’s actually breaking as well but it’s soft. It’s not as hard and it doesn’t repel as much hairs as some of them do. Some of them—the new ones they’ll—you’ll get piles of hair. So we don’t want that because we want the hair on the dog. So what we do is we just run this through like so and this will help the comb to go through. And so the whole dog will be brushed through going with the lay of the hair first of all.
And then what I do with the leg hair especially because it’s quite long and profuse I make a gap which allows me to get my comb right in to the skin and then I work up. And what this does is it separates the hair without ripping it out. So there you see I’ve done about 6 inches. That is hair is now separated and fluffed out. Some hair is going to come out and this is fine because this is the rejuvenation of the coats and it’s always got to be growing. It can’t be the same length. It’s got to be replacing itself, that’s what keeps it luxuriant. And if it’s all the same length, it’s going to be quite dull. So we’ve got various different lengths in there. So when we’re brushing through, were ripping out some dead old hair and we’re making sure that new hair is coming through all the time; that’s going to keep it nice and bulky and give it that healthy shine through it.
Again, I never like allow my dog’s coats to matte because I find that when they do mattes and you’re trying to de-matte them you get this very dull effect on the coats. And it never really has that nice shine; never has that lustier that she want. It always looked sort of slightly buffed and dead. Again, same thing with the front legs, we just literally aerating everything. We’re getting the tangles out. We’re separating the hair. As you can see the volume is almost stabled. Again if you wish to straighten his hair it would come out even further but as I said when it all crumples up which is what it will do since we stop fiddling with it, it will go down to half the size.
So once we’ve used our slicker brush to loosen and separate all the hair like so, we’ll then use our white tooth comb just to go through everything and make sure it does not any mattes or tangles. We want basically the comb to go through the coat like so. This will again put the work into the hair, the movements. It will separates all the hair and turn it back down into the way it’s meant to lie so that then when you come to scissor you’ve got the volume, you’ve catch the volume.
