How often do you brush/groom your dogs?

I have a lab that sheds constantly, and a German short haired pointer. I brush them, but not nearly enough! How often do you brush your dogs/cats?

  • We have a yorkie with silkie hair that we keep cut short. She has to be brushed daily or its a tangled mess as there hair is hair and not fur. We also have a pom/chiu mix who sheds horribly who has to be brushed daily.

  • HA! Since the birth of my child, never. I used to comb my long-haired cat at least weekly, now I do it when she starts getting little mats. My dogs both have short hair, so I just vacuum it off the floor;)

  • I brush my dog everyday.

    mistynights, dogs have fur, not hair....regardless of what kind of breed it is. The yorkie coat, is similar to human hair in that it doesn't have an undercoat, so they do not shed.

    I always laugh when I hear people say dogs have hair.

  • Dogs have hair but sometimes it can be called fur. All fur is hair. Some animals are known for their "fur" however, a word that conveys something about softness or density, warmth, etc. but actually all coats are just hair. got that off of
    every day i brush my dogs, my fiance said they are going to go bald. lol i have worked at grooming shops and at first i called it fur. they laughed at me and said it's hair. so i vote for hair. lol
