Whisks away loose fur
The Ancol Ergo Hedgehog slicker is an effective moulting and detangling tool. The pins penetrate deep into the coat and effectively remove large quantities of dead and loose hair from both the undercoat and the top coat. Grooming your pet helps maintain a smooth and glossy coat and is an important way of bonding with them.
To use the rake, gently brush the hair in the direction of the fur growth. The teeth of the rake will slide into the undercoat, pulling away loose hairs. To ensure your dog has an enjoyable grooming session, start gently. If your dog enjoys grooming, more pressure can be applied to remove more fur. Pause or end the grooming session if your dog becomes agitated.
Grooming is a wonderful way to bond with your dog, but dogs that are new to grooming should be introduced to it slowly. Begin grooming sessions when your dog is relaxed, if possible, after they have exercised. Use tools gently and avoid tugging on the skin or on knots or mats. Give your dog plenty of reassurance throughout the grooming session. Pause or end the grooming session if your dog becomes agitated or shows signs of stress. Keep grooming sessions brief to begin with, and increase the length of the sessions as your dog becomes used to grooming.
