I am trying to motivate to give Blueberry a good brushing but since I’m procrastinating I started to wonder about why I brush it like I do. I know dog shampoo is formulated for dog skin. But is dog hair different too? As a curly/wavy haired human, I’d never comb or brush my hair when it was dry. Wet comb in the shower will LOTS of conditioner. And a slicker would completely destroy my hair. So wondering why does the the dry comb with slicker work for poodle hair (though we use a comb more frequently because he seems to hate all slickers).
