5 #GroomingTools You Need For Your Siberian Husky

grooming tools for siberian husky
If there is one thing people in this world know about Siberian Huskies, it is the fact that grooming is a must! Of course, grooming is a must with any dog, but with huskies, it is an essential part of your weekly (sometimes daily) Siberian needs. We all know huskies shed, and providing regular grooming sessions can be beneficial to not only reduce the amount of fur that ends up on your floor, but also to help your sibe's coat stay lush and beautiful. The tools you choose to use are completely your choice, however there are 5 grooming tools I recommend, which I could not live without. Perk your ears up, and today, I'll share them with you!




5 Grooming Tools You Need For Your Siberian Husky:

  1. The FURminator 
  2. Shedding Blade
  3. Undercoat Rake
  4. Pin Brush
  5. Nail Clippers
The FURminator - When you mention this grooming tool to a husky owner, you will get mixed responses. Some people believe that they can damage the guard hairs of a Sibe, but in my personal opinion that is a simple misconception, most likely coming from those who have overused this brush, causing damage to their huskies coats. The FURminator works AMAZINGLY during blowout seasons of a Siberian Husky. I would not recommend this as an every day grooming tool. I normally use it about once a month.

Shedding Blade - I love this tool! This one is great for once a week brushing. It works wonders at getting off all that access fur that you will later find floating through your house!

Undercoat Rake - I am in love with the rake! Being owned by a dog breed with a double coat, rakes are essential. They get right under that top coat, and gets rid of the shedding undercoat. Especially great for blowout seasons!

Pin Brush - Pin brushes are best used as an every day brush. They are simple, and safely used on a dogs coat daily. 

Nail Clippers -  There is more to grooming your dog than just brushing them. Keeping up with nail care is a must. A good quality pair of dog nail clippers is important in your grooming tool arsenal. There are several different nail care items on the market, so find what works best for you, and your dog.


That concludes this weeks edition of Siberian Saturday. I hope you enjoyed, and please feel free to ask any questions you may have about grooming your Siberian Husky.

  2. Those are great tools! I really like the rake! I also think that force dryers are very helpful with husky grooming! They are so worth the investment!

    1. Force dryers can be great during blowouts for sure! A lot of dogs are afraid of them though, so it really depends :)

  4. Some people probably think you only need one brush, but it's the same with golden retrievers...a good variety is needed for different times!

    1. I agree! I never use the same brush all year round. Doubled coated breeds simply require more than that. And even single coats most times.

  5. I couldn't survive without my FURminator or my shedding blade. The vet cuts the boys nails though. #chicken

    1. LOL, I cut Lexus's nails and Koda's, but my groomer does Mika's, they are black and I won't touch them! haha!

  6. We like the pin brush best, but Mom will also use the rake and once in a great while the Furminator. Our groomer does the best job with her big powerful blow dryers.

    Happy weekend.

  7. Only Rodrigo builds an undercoat. I have a question for you - do you allow the undercoat to build or do you comb it out year around?

    1. Great question Kimberly! For me, it depends on the season, and the amount of undercoat buildup.
      Through the winter I will let it build up more, but summer, I keep it all brushed out as much as possible. Spring and Fall is hit and miss. If I notice too much build up, i'll go in and do a proper job to get rid of all that access, otherwise I will use a normal pin brush with a quick 10 minute grooming session about twice a week.

  8. I like how you mentioned you only use the FURminator once a month. I've heard mixed reviews on the product, and like you said, I think owners over use it. We use our pin brush regularly but I'm a bit reluctant to spend money on expensive grooming tools. With Cody's double coat, I know we need a few more tools but I want to feel more confident in the products before buying!

    1. I don't blame you one bit! I definitely think it's important to feel comfortable when any product we use on our pets. And yes, I am certain the reason for some of the bad reviews on FURminator are simply due to people using them incorrectly. Definitely not an every day brush but really works amazingly when used right!

  9. The undercoat rake's invaluable with a mini aussie, too!

  11. We used to have an elkhound and her fur was similar to that of a Husky. Thank you for the kind words you left for me about my Lucy.

  12. Chessies need fewer grooming tools...lol. Nail clippers and we use a zoom brush. Pond is our best grooming tool.

    1. Nice! I love the shedding blade for a huskies coat. It works very well!

  14. Grooming our dogs need not be expensive if we have the skills to do it ourselves. I have a Golden Retriever and those hairs are really something. I think brushing twice a day toned down the shedding so I'm doing that religiously. With the nail clipping, I'm ashamed to say I'm petrified of doing my dog's nails! So, to the groomers he goes - at least he can be taken cared of well. Lately, I've been reading on the different grooming tools we can buy. I'm trying to learn how to properly clip my dog's hair. Here's a good site that shows a couple of good grooming tools http://dogsaholic.com/care/dog-grooming-clippers.html

  15. I wonder about the undercoat rakes scratching or opening the skin. Do you just go very lightly or what is your experience with this? I live in Florida. I rescued my gold and white husky mix from the local shelter. He is beautiful, clean and happy, just trying to cut down on the hair floating around. Thank you!
