This morning when I was walking Nikki we were in some rough grass and I was reminded of a tip from my groomer, that I published in our summer Lifestyle Pet Care Newsletter. It deserves repeating, so here it is verbatim!
It’s that time of year again! Burrs can make a real mess of a coat and most people think that the only option is to cut them out, which can makes a worse mess! The small burrs can usually be brushed out with a slicker brush but the big ones are more of a pain. Crushing them with pliers makes them much easier to brush out, and coating the burr with a (dog fur) conditioner helps even more.
