The Importance of Combing and Brushing: A Groomer's Perspective


As a professional dog groomer, I am often asked about the necessity of both combing and brushing for dogs. While brushing has long been considered the primary method for maintaining a dog's coat, I firmly believe that combing plays an equally vital role in your furry friend's grooming routine. Lets explore why both combing and brushing are essential and why, in many cases, combing may be the superior option.

Untangling Knots and Mats:
Combing is particularly effective in addressing knots and mats in a dog's coat. While brushes are great for removing loose fur, they may not be as effective in detangling stubborn knots. Regular combing helps prevent mats from forming, ensuring your dogs coat stays smooth and healthy.

Removing Loose Fur and Preventing Shedding:
Brushing is excellent for removing loose fur and reducing shedding, but a comb can take this process to the next level. Combing reaches deeper into the coat, helping to eliminate loose hair that may be trapped near the skin. This not only keeps your dog looking tidy but also assists to reduce shedding around your home.

Checking for Skin Issues:
Combing allows groomers and pet owners to inspect a dog's skin more closely. This is crucial for detecting any lumps, bumps, or skin irritations early on. The fine teeth of a comb can reveal issues that might go unnoticed during a simple brushing session.

Preventing Mat-Related Discomfort:
Mats can be more than just a cosmetic concern, they can lead to discomfort for your dog. Combing helps prevent mats from forming in the first place, ensuring that your pet's grooming experience is a pleasant one. It's especially beneficial for breeds with long or curly hair prone to tangling.


 Ideal for Dogs with Certain Coat Types:
While brushes work well for some coat types, combs are often more suitable for dogs with longer hair, curly coats, or breeds prone to matting. Combing is gentle on the coat and less likely to cause breakage, making it a preferable option for specific breeds. Try using a quality conditioner and combing thru the coat to make sure it penetrates every strand for a silky finish. 


While both brushing and combing are crucial elements of a dog's grooming routine, combing offers unique benefits that should not be overlooked. As a groomer, I find that incorporating regular combing into your dogs care routine contributes to a healthier, happier, and more comfortable pet. So, next time you groom your furry friend, consider reaching for the comb – your dog's coat will thank you for it!
