Should I wash the dog before I brush the fur off or wash the fur before I spin it or just wash it when it's yarn? Do I have to buy some of those carding brushes or can I use something else for that?

I hope that's not a dreadful lot of questions.
I found a book I bought ages ago...about 7 years ago on spinning dog fur...its called "Putting on the dog" by Carol Kroll. Published in 1999...

here is the address in the book
Carol Kroll
W3016 Green Isle Drive
Fort Atkinson

its a very good book and I have used some of the ideas in it to spin my possum fiber here...Good lluck
