Hansgrohe DogShower can be used for any coat length. With long or matted dog hair, however, you should be particularly careful and make sure that the dog's hair does not get caught in the brush. Alternatively, you can simply wash your dog on the fur without using the brush.

Can I get my dog's undercoat out with the Hansgrohe DogShower?
Thanks to the Hansgrohe DogShower's water-bearing brush, your dog's coat will reliably get wet even with a thick undercoat. During washing, part of the fur, including the undercoat, is usually brushed off. If your dog has a lot of undercoat, after washing and drying your dog, using an undercoat may help.
Can I also use Hansgrohe DogShower if my dog does not have an undercoat?
Yes. The Hansgrohe DogShower can be used for all dogs - it only helps owners of dogs with a lot of undercoat, as otherwise they will get wet everywhere when washing and the shampoo is more difficult to rinse out.

Hansgrohe DogShower is not suitable for this, as the brush can then get caught in the fur. Instead, we recommend a visit to the dog groomer who can help you untangle your darling.
Is washing with Hansgrohe DogShower pleasant for the dog?
If your dog likes washing dogs, he will love it all the more with Hansgrohe DogShower. If your dog doesn't like washing the dog, he won't like it all at once with the Hansgrohe DogShower. Nevertheless, washing with Hansgrohe DogShower is more pleasant for your dog than with a conventional shower head or a garden hose. The brushing creates a familiar feeling that most dogs love, and the stroking movement (front to back and top to bottom) gives your darling extra peace of mind. The selected jet types are extra gentle and quiet.

No - the knobs are specially rounded at the front and have a soft consistency (silicone). Brushing is therefore comfortable for your dog. You should still be careful not to apply too much pressure while brushing.
