How Do You Use a Pin Brush on a Dog?
As we already know, a wire pin brush is a brush with wire pins, which are widely spaced and have ball-like ends made with either rubber or plastic. Pin brush helps dogs with medium to long fir like chows, Lhasa apsos, Maltese, sheepdogs, and spaniels, among others. Generally, regardless of your dog's breed, it's a must to brush your dog regularly as part of the grooming routine. According to the Animal Humane Society, your dog should be brushed every few days, and if it sheds a lot, it should be brushed more often. Coming to brush use, every brush type has a different use. Pin Brush is for regular brushing for everyday use. However, remember that pin brushes are not suitable for short coat dogs like german shepherds or pugs. While it won't hurt them, better brushes suit the short coat types for an efficient job. The technique of using a pin brush on a dog depends on the type of hair your dog has. If your dog has a long and flowing coat, it's advised to brush along the hair grain. For dogs that have thing hair coats, brush the hair along and against the grain. As for dogs with a rough outer coat but soft undercoats, brush along the grains of hair on the undercoat and against the grains on the outer coat.
