Now's the time to pay closer attention to your dog's general health, particularly its skin. Dogs are also susceptible to allergies, fleas and skin disorders. Seemingly minor issues can soon become major ones if you aren't careful. As you pet or brush your dog, you may likely discover those problems and deal with them before they become serious health issues.
But brushing your dog benefits him or her in other ways. It establishes a better connection between you and makes your dog feel better. As you brush, you're also removing excess fur from your dog, yourself, your floor and furniture. All of that leads to a cleaner home and furnishings AND dog! It's a win-win situation. You should know that there are special brushes that practically clean themselves. They might cost a little more, but the convenience of using one is priceless if your dog sheds a lot during the year. You and your furniture will wind up with less fur to clean up.
