      I believe that all Pomskies would have undercoat to protect them from the cold in Winter, but there may be some that may not have that (which I have yet to see). How do you groom your Pomsky’s coat? Do you use a grooming tool? What would you recommend?

      Cody is not a fan of grooming. He gets a bit wriggly when the comb touches him. Even the glove-type of comb, he gets a little unsettled. He knows what that is! Grooming for Cody is a very long and tedious process. Hahahaha. Views and advice, anyone?

      Timur has a typical double-coat fur and to be honest I have to brush him everyday at least one time. Especially his hind legs have to be brushed a lot so there won’t be any untended spots. I have to say that he is used to being brushed. I just had to do it every day since I got him. It’s not his favorite time of the day, but I am convinced, that if you repeat things a lot with your dog, he gets used to it.
      Concerning the brush I have to say, that I have 4 different brushes of which I use 3 often. Every brush I have has advantages and disadvantages.

      BRUSH 1: This brush makes the fur really soft and shiny. For Timur it is like a massage. I just that brush to strenghten our relationship and to make him comfortable. He even lays on his back to let me brush his belly. A huge disadvantage is, that this brush doesn’t free messes and knots in his fur.

      Brush one

      So we come to BRUSH 2: This brush gets used when he has a real mess in his fur and I want to make it go away. It really brushes out all the messes and is very useful when your Pomsky changes his coat.

      Brush two

      Last but not least BRUSH 3: I use this brush as a compromise of brush 1 and 2. It does make messes go away but for the really hard messes it’s not good enough. I use it, when I need to groom Timur when his fur is okay.

      Brush three

      I hope that informations help you all!

      @andre I’m sure Cody will get use to being groomed after you’ve gone through the process a few times, just keep brushing/grooming him a few times a week just to get him use to it, then when he’s shedding his coat it won’t be so much of a struggle for you. I would give him a little treat and lots of praises after the process so he starts to realise there’s a reward at the end of grooming, he might even start to like being brushed and see it as a pamper session haha

      All Pomsky owner will know full well and go through there Pomsky hair loss stage. We find the best and easiest way of grooming a Pomsky is with the Furminator brush, it collects all the lose hair and you can easily dispose of the hair with a button that releases it in a bin, no mess 🙂 it’s also really good to get the tough strands holding on.

      Another good brush to have around is a double sided brush. On one side, the stiff, nylon bristles smooth your dog’s coat for a healthy, shiny appearance and help distribute healthy coat oils. The other side has rounded, coated pin tips that provide comfort and reduce skin irritation.
