Need help with grooming Pyr
« on: November 10, 2008, 09:43:40 am »
Binky's coat is out of control and I don't know what to do!  Does anyone know a site that gives detailed instructions on how to groom a Pyr?  Or have some advice?  I have her professionally groomed a few times a year and brush her with a wire brush and the furminator in between groomings.  However, her fur is suddenly in big clumpy masses all over and I don't know how to fix it.  It is matted but it's more like felted together if that makes sense?  It has never done this before so I don't know if it's from Sophie chewing on her when they play or from the rain or what.  Any ideas- she looks awful and I'm sure it feels bad too.

I highly recommend "Best Shot" products!!! You don't even need to dematt before washing a pup. Whatever doesn't come out just use a detangler spray and brush with a long pin brush.  ;)

Thanks so much guys.  I never thought of a detangler for dogs.  I will definitely try that and get the rake.
