Keeping your dog well groomed not only makes them look good but it also makes them feel good. If your dog's coat becomes matted there is a risk of hot spots, parasites, and skin irritations. Combing tangles from the coat is very important to keep it from matting down to the skin. Regular brushing of your dog's coat will stimulate blood flow and reduce shedding. Your pet's coat will be healthier with regular brushing as the natural oils are disbursed throughout their coat. Keeping your dog's face free from overgrown hair prevents eye irritation and sores from developing under hardened clumps of eye discharge.
