For good coat care, you can use different kinds of brushes. A good, professional dog brush can keep your dog's hair, coat and skin healthy and shiny. A rubber grooming brush is ideal for this purpose. The flexible rubber pins remove dead hairs on both wet and dry short-haired coats and have a massaging effect. A palm pad, which has a strong and flexible cushion, can be used to brush the coat of a wire-haired dog.
