Gentle on your dog's coat and skin
The Ergo Pin Pad is perfect for pets that are nervous or new to grooming. The stainless steel pins detangle and remove loose fur whilst being gentle on your dog's coat and skin.
To use, affix the pad to your palm securely, ensuring the pins point upwards from your palm. Using a natural, stroking motion, gently brush the hair in the direction of the fur growth. The pins are rounded for comfort and will pull loose hairs from the coat and undercoat. To ensure your dog has an enjoyable grooming session, do not push the pins into the dog's skin. Gently tease out tangles with the brush. Do not not pull or tug on matted fur; this may require cutting. Pause or end the grooming session if your dog becomes agitated.
Grooming is a wonderful way to bond with your dog, but dogs that are new to grooming should be introduced to it slowly. Begin grooming sessions when your dog is relaxed, if possible, after they have exercised. Use tools gently and avoid tugging on the skin or on knots or mats. Give your dog plenty of reassurance throughout the grooming session. Pause or end the grooming session if your dog becomes agitated or shows signs of stress. Keep grooming sessions brief to begin with, and increase the length of the sessions as your dog becomes used to grooming.
