  2. Use a fine-toothed comb, often called a flea comb (although it is not used to remove fleas in standard grooming techniques) to comb the coat gently in the opposite direction of that in which it naturally lies to ensure any deep lying dead fur is removed. Then comb thoroughly in the direction that the fur naturally lies to collect any loose, remaining debris.
  3. Use a bristle or baby brush briskly at this point to remove any remaining loose fur without disturbing the work already don and causing mire hair to shed.
