hiya everyone,

i havent been on here for a while i have been out meeting parents of puppies that are due. i went to see some traditional gsd and the long coated gsds and i have definately decided that my heart well and truly lies with the long coats.
i am still collecting bits and pieces and would like to know if anyone out there has any preferences to nail clippers and brushes as there are quite a few choices out there and i keep trying to work out which are best for this breed. i am a little nervous about cutting dogs nails incase i hurt them

Glad to hear you have decided on a hairy shepherd

Slicker brushes are good ..........rake combs are great the rotating ones work well

You probably wont need to cut a adult dogs nails much as they usually keep worn down during excercise.....but if you do want to cut them get some "quick stop" in your kit you will need to be carefull you dont catch the dogs quicks .

Hiya

i am so glad to hear that i shouldnt need to cut them that often as i was really worried in case i cut the quick but i will get some quick stop just in case. there was so many choices of brushes and having a long haired dog it would have to do more work. i will try and find the brushes you recommended. hope you dogs are keeping well Stormlake they are a credit to you.

Yep - i agree
Undercoat rake & slicker brush

If you find yourself without quick stop in a nail quick emergency you can use flour. It's not quite as good but it will help.

Sounds like you've had fun seeing everyone
