Whatever your little dog's tail brushing needs, you will need to have the right brushes and tools and provide support to the tail, skin, and hair when brushing. Your small dog does not want his tail or tail hair pulled, so working to remove tangles and debris and style your dog's tail will need to be done thoroughly, but gently and with care.
Small dogs have a variety of different types of tails, but they all need to be dirt and tangle-free. Brushing your small dog's tail to remove debris and keep it tidy is important to avoid mats that are both unsightly and can trap moisture and cause sores. Because tails are sensitive and part of your dog's spine, brushing your dog's tail will need to be done carefully to avoid pulling. Supporting the tail and holding hair between your grooming tool and your dog’s skin to reduce pulling will be appreciated by your little guy.
