Re: How often do you brush your GSD?

Daily. This brings out pack drive, cements our bond to eachother.. gives me a way to do a health check in general, allows me to note any changes-- and provides a wonderful way for me to nurture such a cuddly, affectionate dog. I use both an undercoat rake and a a cushioned, ball-tipped pin brush. Most days only 1 type of brush, but rarely, like tonight, I used the undercoat rake first, followed by the ball-tipped pin brush to bring out a nice sheen. This daily ritual reduces stress for both of us, and I get in all the kisses and snuggles that I want to.

This depends. Less in the winter time. During the rainy season or show season, it's everyday. They can't come in wet; and technically I put them on the table and blow the hair out.

Every other day... except I haven't found a brush that is able to really pick up the fine hair.

When the beer and asprin stop working, I use a brush with the little round balls on the bristles, doesnt do anything really but makes me feel better

Wow Jesse is 1.4 years old and we haven't brushed him at all, he has short hair and still hasn't grown and undercoat yet, he has just started shedding but not that bad yet.

Once a week, right after I clip his nails.

Isis just loves getting brushed. She thinks she's getting spoiled. It's like her " massage"
