    Any ideas on coats …as in, my very old boy gets so tangled now that I end up chopping chunks off him, but he can’t stand well enough to be groomed now, and his skin is very sensitive so I have to wait until he is asleep and creep up on him..slicker brushes he HATES and de-tangling combs make him leap ( wobble ) to the door….

  • Its not fair on them as they get older.. we clip them out, sad as it is but much easier especially as they get a bit slow and wobbly and can’t take the grooming. Pet ones we do once a month and show ones every week and also the night before a show.. its a four hour grooming session. Your probably better to snip the tats of than try and groom them out , the oul timers can’t take it. We used to use Mason Pearson pure bristle brushes, but all that seems to have changed. coat texture can vary .. with some a naturally oily coat is easier to keep.. some can be woolly .. they’re harder to keep. The choice of shampoo and conditione and diet all play a part. But keeping afghans isn’t easy.. they are work!

  • Use of slickers and de-tangle should only be used with care, and if yoiu aren’t sure ask somebody in the grooming business or someone who shows and is used to using them, to show you. Groomers are maybe a bit reluctant as is their livelyhood and sometimes it’s better to leave it to them.

    I know…I have always kept his coat about 3 inches because he was a rescue and a pet, and neither of us are fashion conscious!! I thought that would be the best thing, so I will carry on cutting the tats out..he has that mohair fluff type of hair, more woolly and fine than oily…poor old sausage…incredible dog and companion, but not many more months now I don’t think….

  • Yes thats fine it’s much easier..Sugars sister Bubah actually has a very short coat as some have and at certain times resemmbles a Sluki.. while Josh has a very woolly coat ..it’s a bugger to keep.
