You, of course, love your cute pet Chihuahua, but of course will not like to see its hair scattered all over your floor, furniture and upholstery. Brushing your Chihuahua regularly is the best and easiest way to get rid of unwanted hair in your home. But, you should know the right procedure to do that. 5-10 minutes brushing has multiple benefits, it reduces shedding, makes Chihuahua’s coat tangle-free and keeps it clean.
What You’ll Need: As the name implies, the only necessary thing you need for brushing is a good-quality grooming comb. Usually, people do not bother to invest in a specially designed comb/brush for Chihuahua and use a normal hard comb for this purpose, which hurts the delicate skin of your buddy. It is recommended to use special soft rubber grooming brush.
If you have a smooth-coat Chihuahua, then another good option is to use padded grooming gloves. They work like the traditional brush, removing excess hair from Chihuahua’s coat.
Steps To Brushing a Chihuahua’s Coat: So now you are equipped and want your Chihuahua to be brushed off the excess hair. You can either take your buddy to comfortable and soothing areas in your home, or you may do this grooming task in your own lounge. It is recommended that brushing should be done in an out-door area where your furniture & carpets do not get hair on it.
We would say, there is not one fixed method for brushing your Chihuahua’s coat. But commonly, you are supposed to work in the direction of hairs. Starting usually from neck and ending at the rear. Do not force a tangle to get free. Gently untangle with the brush.
How Often Should You Brush Chihuahua’s Coat? The key is simple, you have to brush your long-haired Chihuahua once every week and smooth-coat Chihuahua once every other week. Brushing before bathing can also help in having less hair left in your bathtub to clean.
