Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Woolly Coat   Tue Jul 02, 2013 12:52 am

My male Husky has a woolly coat and
he can become a mess. We take him to a groomer
to have his legs and rear end cleaned up. They also
thin the under coat. We never had to do this with
our previous Huskies. Can regular grooming cause
problems in this breed, like possible skin problems?

I would not thin the undercoat - Get a really good grooming rake, if you need suggestions please ask, a greyhound comb, a slicker brush and a spray bottle.

Mix a little bit of coconut oil in warm water and put into spray bottle for detangling.

I use this for brushing out the undercoat.

Woolies are higher maintenance than regular Siberians. Their fur is softer, longer and tangles easier. Weekly brushing is a must.

Our first husky Zoe is a wooly coat. She's definitely more high maintenance than our other girls. Her problem areas are her tail and hind quarters because in 9 years I have never been able to get her used to being brushed in those areas. She gets really nervous anytime we get close, and she is prone to mats in those areas. My best friend when working with her is a nice undercoat rake. I would not recommend getting the undercoat thinned.
