Grooming Great Pyrenees Pantaloons
Is it just me, or does anyone else absolutely love the Great Pyrenees pantaloons?
Talk about a fluffy butt!
While I love their pantaloons, they can be particularly difficult to keep well-groomed. Because they are long, thick, and well, on their rear end, they tend to mat very easily. If you don’t pay close attention, you can end up with one giant pantaloon mat.
This happened once with Mauja. I hadn’t been feeling well and so I didn’t brush her for over a week. She never looked too bad so I didn’t use the little energy I had during the day to brush her. From the outside, she looked perfectly fine. A little scraggly, but fine.
When I was finally feeling better, I sat down to give her a good brush. Once I made it to her pantaloons, I was horrified. While they looked fine, they did not feel fine. They were one massive mat.
I sat down with my de-matting brush and The Stuff to get the mats small enough that they would just brush out. Needless to say, it took a long time and Mauja was not happy with me after. I vowed to brush the pantaloons daily so that wouldn’t happen again.
When we were at BlogPaws, we got the opportunity to try a new brush, the Groom Genie. I loved the concept of the brush – to calm pets while you brush them. Any fluffy dog parent knows that a simple brush won’t cut it. You need a rake to really get into that undercoat and brush it out.
The Groom Genie sat in my grooming toolbox for quite a few months. Occasionally, I’d use it to brush out their ear feathers, but that was about it.
One day, I was digging through my grooming supplies to find something to brush out Atka’s pantaloons. The rake made a good start, but I wanted something to smooth it out. Something with long enough bristles to get the entire way through the fluff, rather than just the outer layer. I saw my Groom Genie and decided to give it a try.
Not only are the bristles long enough, but they are soft as well. Atka absolutely hates his rear being brushed, but he is much more tolerant than he would be with traditional metal bristles. I also love the grip for the Groom Genie. It fits perfectly in my hand and doesn’t strain my grip.
In my opinion, it’s pyrfect for maintaining the Great Pyrenees pantaloons (or any other breed with fluffy butts!). Each day, I grab my Groom Genie and take a few seconds to brush through each pup’s pantaloons to avoid any bothersome mats.
