How to groom the double coated dog – the easy way!

Double coated dogs are fluffy, shed their coats twice yearly, and leave a wake of hair in their path. Staying ahead of grooming your double coated dog can leave your house and car a bit cleaner, as well as provide your dog with some wonderful bonding time with you.

The undercoat of a double coated dog is soft, fluffy, and is the insulating layer. This serves to keep your dog warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The outer layer is more coarse, and serves to weatherproof your dog, keeping water and the elements away from the inner layer.

There’s also the “blow out” to contend with as well. The change in length of daylight hours tells your dog to start replacing his winter coat for a lighter summer coat, and his summer coat for a heavier winter coat. When your dog blows his coat, he’s literally letting go of the old one so a new one can come in. And there’s tons of hair!

A dog with a double coat can have short hair, like a Labrador, or even medium or long hair. German shepherd dogs and Newfoundland dogs have longer double coats. Collies have much longer double coats.

Double coated dogs are traditionally groomed with metal combs and rakes, but many dogs find this to be uncomfortable. Grooming gloves work to make grooming fun and comfortable for your pup.

Double coated dogs are traditionally groomed with metal combs and rakes, but many dogs find this to be uncomfortable. Grooming gloves work to make grooming fun and comfortable for your pup.

The nubs of the grooming gloves are gentle and provide a massage, as they work to bring up the undercoat that is ready to shed. Using a circular motion helps this process, and dogs love how this feels! When your gloves fill with hair, give your hands a shake and the hair will release.

To use grooming gloves for your dog’s top coat, simply stroke your dog. Working nose to tail in the same direction of your dog’s coat will tidy up the top coat.

Regular use of the grooming gloves will also allow your dog’s natural skin oils to cover his hair coat, creating a nice shine and glow. You don’t have to wait for your dog to “blow his coat”, as they are shedding on some level all year long. Keeping up with regular massage and grooming and your dog (and vacuum) will appreciate it!
