There is more to keeping your dog's dense coat brushed than just making him look his best. It is also very good for his overall health, especially that of his skin. When a dog has a very dense coat, he tends to shed virtually non-stop. This means your home is literally always covered with a fine layer of dog hair that has to be cleaned up. Brushing your dog's dense coat will significantly reduce the amount of hair your vacuum has to work overtime to clean up, and it's a great way to bond with your pup. Keep in mind that a dense coat consists of multiple layers of hair, making it important for you to know how to brush it properly.
Chances are pretty good your pooch couldn't care less whether or not you brush his coat. But at the same time, he is sure to appreciate being brushed and having all that loose hair pulled out of his coat. Not only will he enjoy being brushed, but you may save your vacuum cleaner from an early death. In the wild, a dog will use virtually anything as a scratching post to remove this excess hair. At home, you become his scratching post--or at least your furniture and carpet do--unless you brush him regularly.
When you have a dog with a dense coat, keeping him properly brush can seem a bit challenging. However, the longer you let his coat go without being brushed, the harder it is going to get. In time, you may have no choice but to take him to a professional groomer. The good news, spending time brushing your dog is a great way to bond with him.
