Brush Phase

About Brushing the Coat Type for the Finishing Phase
For the show trim, leave as much undercoat as possible during this phase for the rough and rough Nordic coat type and for the pet trim, as always, the focus will be to remove as much as possible. To begin the brushing phase and to remove as much undercoat as possible, use a dematting and/or undercoat rake on the longer coat on the mane and trousers. Card the shorter coated areas.

To brush this coat type properly, to remove as much undercoat as possible and to prepare the coat for the finishing phase, with a slicker brush, begin at the rear on one of the back legs and line brush with the lay of coat paying close attention to the longer coat on the mane, skirt, trousers and tail. Check for packed undercoat or matting with a wide tooth comb after line brushing. Check behind the ears and under the tail for matting.

After completing the line brushing technique, and to prepare the coat for the finishing phase, begin at the rear and brush against the lay of coat with a slicker or a pin brush on the mane and trousers to insure maximum volume and finishing up by brushing the jacket, with the lay of coat.
