Removing burrs from dog's fur3 Replies
We have two small dogs - one mainly Yorkie and one a Shih Tzu - and both have longish fur. This summer seems to have been worse than normal for them collecting small spikey burrs (like seeds or something) which clump together in their fur. I guess this has been worse because of the dry weather but it is a nightly task to clear them both.Generally we just patiently part the hair and ease them out with a bit of scissor cutting for the worst ones. Fortunately they are both fairly patient but it does take a long time - any bright ideas for alternative methods (short of just shaving them completely!)?
