    A dog should be shampooed 4 times to get it squeaky clean.

    • A.

      True

    To get a quality finish on long coated breeds, the coat needs to be as straight as possible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To achieve a quality finish on long coated breeds, it is necessary for the coat to be as straight as possible. This is because straight hair is easier to groom and maintain, resulting in a more polished appearance. Straight hair also allows for better visibility and definition of the breed's natural features and structure. Curly or tangled hair can make grooming difficult and may hide the true beauty of the coat. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the coat is straight in order to achieve a high-quality finish on long coated breeds.

  • 4. 

    It is easier to dematt a clean coat than a dirty coat.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When a coat is clean, there are no tangles or knots in the fabric, making it easier to brush or comb through and remove any potential mats. On the other hand, a dirty coat is more likely to have debris, dirt, or oils that can contribute to matting. These substances can make the coat stick together, making it more difficult to dematt without causing discomfort or pain to the animal. Therefore, it is true that it is generally easier to dematt a clean coat than a dirty coat.

This strong airflow also helps to lift and separate the fur, allowing us to see the dog's skin more clearly. Therefore, it is true that a high Velocity dryer gives us a clear picture of the dog's skin.

    A curry brush is the proper brush to remove coat from a smooth coated dog.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

      True

    • B.

      False
