Hygiene and Health Benefits

An important reason to brush your dog is to get rid of any lose hairs. This will leave them feeling good and will also mean that there will be less of a mess for you to clean up later on.
Your dog will probably be out and about, accumulating dirt and debris on their coat. Brushing will help slide this dirt off. It will also help untangle all the mats and prevent knots from forming.
Brushing will help spread out your dog’s natural skin oils over the hair shaft, thus leaving them with a healthy and shiny coat. This also means that less frequent baths will be required.
