how to get burrs out of dog fur?
When burrs start to form on your dog's fur, it's time to get them out. You might find that the best way to do this is by rubbing the fur between your fingers, or by using a damp washcloth (so you don't have to worry about hurting your dog's skin). If either method doesn't work for you, make sure you're wearing thick work gloves and try prying apart some of the burrs with tweezers. Doing this will usually remove many of them at once!
If all else fails, try gently pulling up a small section of fur and combing through it with an old-fashioned metal comb. Once you have a handful of the unwanted growths in your hand, continue combing through until you have removed all of them.
As soon as you think all the burrs are gone, start brushing your dog's fur to make sure that they're really gone. The heat from brushing will usually speed up the drying process, but they may still take some time to fully dry out. To avoid inhaling them (or getting them in any other orifices), it's best to wash your hands after removing the burrs. You can also put a wrap-around bandage over your dog's head and rub their fur between that and some cloth so it doesn't get in his eyes or nose.
