But in a few days, after much petting, bed head, and whatnot, she gets kinda... I don't know how to put it.... clumpy? Not matted or anything, but it's not foofed out anymore. Looks like probably from oils or whatever in either her skin or our hands, or possibly both.
Is this a job for the leave in shampoo stuff, or is there something I can specifically get (Vance had mentioned to me a grooming spray, would that do it?) that will re-foof the fluff?
|A good brush out with some grooming spray does the trick here!|
|I call it bed-body...like bed head except the whole body|
|It usually will fluff back up (for a day or two) by doing a line grooming with a slicker brush. |
If you are showing it's not something you can do often, as it will also remove more coat. But for a non-show dog - go for it!
|Fyi Dawn, I love my new pin brush! What a difference!|
|Eevee gets like that, and some plain old brushing seems to get her back to her floofy self! It's usually even more effective if I'm line brushing her, but normal dog brushing works too. Just don't use a pin brush with the little bits on the ends, you don't want to pull her hair out.|

Great! It really does make a difference. I own many, with various pin lengths and stiffnesses - as you will find out that as the coat changes and grows, some work better than others. Makes for a good excuse for shopping!
|Short cut when you need to go somewhere, but don't have the time to line brush is to use the dryer. I have a force dryer and she is fluffy and looks presentable in five minutes!|
|That is due to the coat. You need to brush or comb her out as you get that sometimes after a wash|
|Just use a hair dryer on warm!|

Is there a trick to getting them not to hate the blow dryer? She freaking loathes it. Or at least, I think she does. She alternately tries to get off the table, or bite the air, whichever she deems most effective at the moment.
|bribes!! get someone to give him some treats while you put the hair dryer on the back legs, just for a moment, never over do it. then a bit more and go over the back. dont let them play with the dryer, try to get them out of that habbit. drying an oes takes a long time and if they think its play time you have no chance!|
it may take a few days before you get to go around the head, little and often and lots of praise when you turn off the dryer, they will soon realise its not going to kill them.
