I was combing Mason's hair yesterday and he had a bit of static. How can I remedy this?
Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of the little guy. The first one was when he was 11 weeks old and the second one is at 14 weeks. He's changed so much in 3 weeks. I couldn't believe it until I saw the pictures side-by-side.
i have two american eskimo dogs and static is a huge problem. using conditioner after a bath helps dramatically. also if you have a spritzer bottle...either spritz him, or the brush, so it has a mist of water on it before you brush. do this every couple swipes. or take a damp wash cloth and smoth it over him so the hair surface is damp. i would not suggest rubbing dryer sheets on him, or using static guard. though for my own winter fly-aways i spray static guard on the brush....but its safe because i dont go licking my own hair afterwards. not usually, anyways... ;)
Spray the brush with hairspray then brush.. hairspray will take care of the flyaways on dogs and humans. :) After you bathe your dog spray a mixture of water and conditioner on the hair.. leave it in and blow dry.
When I bathe my Maltese x Poodle Katie (which unfortunately is almost every week..gotta love having a white dog in spring, I always use a separate conditioner as well. I find it keeps her fur nice and managable.
Maybe get him a little haircut (just a trim) to shorten the hair so it doesn't have room to stand up all static-y. But if I were you, I would leave it alone because he is really a very cute ball of fluff!
