Brushing also serves to help to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a shining coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to lessen the need to bath and therefore minimize the regularity of bathing.

How Often to Groom Your Australian Kelpie
Dogs with short coats frequently require less brushing and grooming contrasted to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more quickly.
Some very short-haired dogs may not need conventional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should monitor the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which suggests they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
