Quick grooming question - Klaus has a great shiny coat - especially over his shoulders and down his back.
However, I've noticed the fur on his back legs, tail, and right above his tail doesn't look so shiny or nice. Especially on his tail, the fur looks kind of frazzled, almost like split ends or something. Part of it, I guess, is he has less guard hairs there, especially on his tail, and the other thing is that the ground here is pure dust, so when he sits outside not in the grass, his tail and hind legs get super dusty. This happens multiple times a day.
Obviously I don't want to give him a million baths (though if he had his way I would - I can't get that dog out of the bathtub
), so I wondered if anyone had any advice to deal with this.
Right now I brush him every other day first with a rake, then a slicker brush. I tried a rubber curry comb but it didn't do much for him. The brushing doesn't seem to fix the dustiness as the dust is very fine.
Does anyone have a good way to get dust out of the hair without a bath?
