Canine Grooming Secrets eBook Eleven: Grooming the Wire-Haired Coat

Although many grooming needs are universal, regardless of a dog’s breed, you should groom to your dog’s specific coat type. In this book, we will look at how to groom the wire-haired coat so it looks true to type and is never silky and smooth.
