lizzy and i are doing good with the bonding of brushing her hair
first i use the furminator this tool removes the undercoat.
labs have two coats of hair.
the top coat is water repellent and the undercoat keeps her warm and dry.
very important when she goes fishing in lakes, ponds, and streams….woof woof !
it is amazing the amount of undercoat is removed.
next is the slicker brush. this helps with the tail and massages the skin
last is the finishing brush, i use a standard goody hair brush.
lizzy finishes the bonding with several well deserved body shakes.
grooming is a new command i am teaching her. when and where to groom herself.
