PSA: IF YOU DON’T HAVE 15 MINUTES A DAY TO DEDICATE TO BRUSHING OUT A LONGER COATED DOG DO NOT FUCKING GET ONE.
If you have to stop and think “will I have the time to run a comb over my dog” DO NOT GET A LONG COATED DOG!! GET A LAB, OR A POINTER, OR A PITBULL. THIS IS BORDERLINE DOG ABUSE.
AND NO….YOUR EIGHT YEAR OLD DAUGHTER CANNOT BRUSH THE DOG THE WAY IT NEEDS TO BE, TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY AND DO IT YOURSELF. HOLY FUCKING POSEIDON I CANNOT STAND THESE IGNORANT FUCKING DOG OWNERS!!
Even if you can’t or don’t have time to brush it every day, then budget for keeping it groomed every 6 weeks. Your dogs hair is just like yours and gets dirty and tangled. If you’re not willing or able to keep it in good shape yourself, pay someone to do it for you. Think- Would you like getting your head shaved twice a year because you couldn’t be bothered to brush? ;)
