Grooming your Finnish Spitz

Fashion tips

Here is a selection of tools we use on our Finnish Spitzes

Slicker Brush

Slicker brushes consist of brush heads covered with short, tightly-packed wire pins angled to go through the coat and avoid the skin. Use them to remove mats and prevent mats from forming by removing loose hair. Maintain a light touch when using slicker brushes, as pressing down hard could cause discomfort.

This is my everyday Brush.

Use once a week.

Chris Christensen / T-Rake with Bent Pins

Undercoat Rake

Undercoat rakes have one or two rows of metal pins designed to penetrate through to the undercoat to remove loose fur, and remove and prevent mats.

This type of brush is the best during shedding season.

Use everyday during shedding season.

My favorite ! The T-brush by Chris Christensen

This brush is clearly my favorite. Perfect for everyday and during heavy shedding.

Perfect for double coat dogs like ours.

Dremel Cordless Dog Nail Grinder 7300-PT 4.8V

Perfect to finnish the job after cutting with the Nail Clipper or if you feel insecure using the clipper, you could just use that grinder. The cordless option is really nice and I can do my 3 adults without having to recharge it in between.

Because accident can happen using a clipper or even your grinder.

Favorite Doggy Door

Endura Flap Kennel Dog Door
Size : Medium
Amazing trap that works all year long even during our harsh winter


Favorite Puppy crate

Petmate Aspen Pet Pet Porter, 30-50 LBS
Tip, visit the walmart next to you, they will most likely have the same crate without the brand and the price. I honestly don’t see a difference in building.
Those crates are prefect for puppies, they are easy to clean compare to the wire one and they make some comfy dens for your Finkies.

Favorite adult crate

New Edge Pet EcoFlex crate

When you Finkie is mature enough it can be time to invest in a more beautiful crate.

My females crates are a Medium size and doors are always open.

Those crates are really lovely

Favorite Lick Mat

Les Chiens d’abord

Rainbow and Hexagone lick mats

Those mats are great for for raw food but also kibbles!

Favorite harness

Nahak – Dog pulling harness

Well made (in Quebec) and functionnal pulling harness. My girls are all wearing a size 3xs.

Perfect fit for my finkies! Plus I love the colors!!
