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.

What is your dogs grooming schedule? Do they like it? What brushes work best for you? Do you have any tips to reduce shedding? Do you own stock in a lint roller company lol! hehe jk! I just brushed Killian for the last hour with a metal comb because I wanted to wait to get brushes until I had some opinions - the good news: angel dog loves being brushed Very Happy when I stopped she came up and nosed my hand as if to say, 'Please more!'

I posted a while back and asked about brushes. It seems the majority owns 3 different kinds (furminator/furbuster, undercoat rake, and a shedding blade) and they use them all. Here's the link to what everyone said: http://www.itsahuskything.com/t2079-new-owner-here

We use slicker brushes and an undercoat rake. That combined with a zoomgroom at bath time keeps them well brushed and probably as light shedding as they'll ever be lol

Thanks so much Very Happy and a zoom groom in the bath is a great idea! Any specific shampoo. I also meant grooming as in anything like perhaps your dogs have a nail trim schedule and you use a specific tool or you brush their teeth or you have a great toy that keeps them clean Smile any grooming gold?

For me once a week I trim the very ends of their nails off unless for some reason it needs more. It takes less time that way and there's no way to trim off too much. I also don't brush their teeth but I give them a frozen raw marrow bone once a week. I let them chew on it for about an hour a day. I can buy a bag of 6 here at a local specialty pet food store for $7. I use baking soda dog shampoo or just baby shampoo when needed, Demon's only been bathed probably 3 times and he's 9 months old lol.

Furminator, undercoat rake, furminator shampoo (great conditioner!) and either washing them in a hydrosurge tub at the dog wash (the shower heads is high pressure and pushes out a ton of undercoat hair) and using the high powered dryer to get undercoat hair out.

Still...there is a ton of hair!
