Recommendations for use
There is a subtle but important difference between carding and brushing, which is simply combing to keep your faithful four-legged friend looking tidy. A good brushing paves the way for efficient carding.
Carding is a painstaking operation that requires patience and care and is essential for your pet’s health. A well-combed and knot-free coat avoids parasites, promotes blood circulation and is extremely important for bonding between the human and animal
Brushing needs to be done once a week, whereas carding can be done less frequently. It is important to be very gentle during this procedure to avoid causing irritation or possible wounds. Much caution is required especially around the eyes, ears and nose during this process.
How do you know if carding is being done properly? If the collected hair is evenly distributed across the brush and there are no marks, you're doing the job right.
It is advisable to start with a wide-tooth comb to facilitate the rest of the procedure
Hold the carder very gently to ensure the right level of sensitivity and apply the correct pressure
It is also very important to use the wrist and not the forearm or elbow; rotate your wrist from the centre of the area outwards so that you can hook the knot and open it up without causing discomfort or pain
Carding must be done following the direction of the hair to avoid causing your pet any pain
