Whatever type of BGV you own, that little puppy you brought home won't stay looking tidy. His coat will grow, get grubby and matted, ears will need cleaning and nails will need clipping. You need to do some work to keep your BGV looking its best.
For basic grooming, the most useful items are:
* A curved slicker brush
* A multi-blade stripping comb
* Stripping knife - or pumice stone
* Serrated scissors
* Sharp scissors
* Nail clippers
* Surgical clamp scissors
* Tooth cleaner
* Cotton wool pads and ear cleaner
A few other grooming tools are useful but not essential.
