What are the types of dog combs
There are many types of dog combs on the market, which have different functions for different hair problems. Parents should choose the right comb according to the type of pet's hair. Usually the owner combs the hair of cats and dogs, and there are four commonly used combs, needle combs, flat combs, undercoat combs, and knot-open combs (knives).
1. Needle comb: Needle comb is a dog comb when combing many pets with long, fluffy and curved hair. For example, Chow Chow, noblewoman, bichon, Shih Tzu, etc., will make the pet's hair more fluffy and lighter.
The needle comb can be large or small, and you can choose according to your pet's body shape. For small dogs and cats, you can choose a small dog comb. For medium and large dogs, you can choose a needle comb with a larger panel, so that when combing the pet's hair , The owner saves effort, and the pet is more comfortable.
Because the needle teeth are relatively short, it is difficult to comb the roots of the hair when combing cats and dogs. When using a needle comb, the hair can be combed in layers, from the tip to the root of the hair in order to comb the hair loosely and transparently without hurting the baby. Gently pick and comb against the direction of the hair can create a fluffy effect.
2. Flat combing and row combing: The most widely used comb is basically suitable for all cats and dogs. It can clean up messy hair and remove shed hair and dirt. Especially for pets with long hair, it can be well combed and smoothed. .
The spacing of the comb teeth varies, some are denser, and some are wider. Generally, the choice is based on the thickness and length of the pet's hair. Pets with thick, dense, and long hair should first be combed with a wide-toothed dog comb, and then combed with a narrower or other comb. The main reason is that dense hairs are prone to hair knots, and dense combs are not easy to comb. Combs with a denser tooth pitch can make the hair smoother and make the pet look neater and more beautiful.
How to use: If your pet's coat is too thick, comb it with a dog comb layer by layer to avoid hurting your pet and follow the growth direction of the pet's hair.
3. Base hair comb: For the seasons, base hair comb is a good helper. It can very effectively remove the dead hair and undervelvet that pets have fallen off, without harming healthy hair, and avoiding the situation that dead hair is difficult to clean.
How to use: The frequency should not be too high, first use a flat comb/row comb to smooth the pet hair, and then use the bottom hair comb. When using a dog comb, the teeth of the comb should be parallel to the skin as much as possible (do not let the teeth face the skin perpendicularly), and comb along the direction of the hair texture. Be careful not to comb the same part too much, just clean the undercoat that fell off.
4. Knot-opening comb (knife): As the name suggests, it mainly targets the knotted hair of long-haired pets. The dog's comb teeth have metal blades that can cut knotted hair.
How to use: The dog comb is combed along the direction of pet hair growth. In order to avoid cutting too much hair, do not comb it backwards. It can be combed once a week or every other week. Hold the knotted hair, and then gently comb the remaining part with an open-knot comb. Don't use excessive force when encountering induration, so as not to pull off the fluff, but press the root of the hair and comb. The fluff is easy to break when it meets the cutting edge, and the dog should be careful when combing.
