Brushing is an integral part of a dog's grooming routine. It will remove loose fur, dirt and debris, while leaving your canine companion looking their best. However, the most important benefit of brushing is its ability to remove knots and tangles.
Before I go into how to remove knots out of your dog's hair, let me first stress the importance of regular brushing. Some breeds such as Golden Retrievers, Great Pyrenees and Labrador Retrievers simply have more hair and as such, they require more frequent brushing. If you own one of these breeds, you should be brushing their hair daily. I know this is probably difficult for a lot of owners, but taking the time to brush their hair each and every day will prevent more serious knots from developing. You can probably get away with weekly brushing if your dog has less hair, though.
