Grooming unruly coats can be a challenge. The coat may be so curly that it matts easily, or the dog may have a lot of hair and it becomes matted quickly. In some cases, the hair may grow so long that it becomes an obstacle for the dog.
Here are 3 must-follow tips for grooming an unruly coat:
- Use the right tools
- Maintain the coat regularly
- Use quality products
Some coats can be a challenge. There are many different things you can do to help make this process easier. Plus, your pet will definitely appreciate it! Our recommendations in this article will help make your life easier and your pet’s experience more enjoyable.
When it comes to grooming a dog with a difficult coat, you have to use the right tools. Brushes such as the Plush Puppy Ultimate Soft Slicker Brush are brilliant in abolishing loose hair and removing matts in all coat types and lengths.
You’ll also need a finishing brush to suit your breed’s coat. Pin brushes, Boar Bristle Brushes and Anti-Static brushes all offer beautiful finishes on the right coats and are perfect for grooming unruly coats. Many coats can also benefit from one of Plush Puppy’s professional grooming combs that feature both fine and coarse pins.
Try to get in at least one coat brushing per week. If you are unable to brush it yourself, make sure you take your pet to a groomer on a regular basis.
Ensure you use a good quality shampoo when bathing your dog. Plush Puppy ‘Ready to Use’ Shampoos is of high quality and a convenient solution. This will help keep tangles at bay and make brushing the coat a much easier process.
If the coat is in need of hydration after shampooing, Plush Puppy has a few choices depending on your dog’s coat type and your desired outcome. Natural Silk Protein Conditioner is a brilliant traditional hydrating conditioner that will leave a coat softer and silkier.
TLC Coat Conditioner is an easy to use leave-in or rinse-out conditioning spray.
Seabreeze Oil can be used on any coat type as it hydrates without altering the texture of the coat in any way. You will also obtain the most amazing shiny coat with this product.
Plush Puppy Reviva Coat is another option and is a leave-in moisturising foam that smells sublime! Again this can be used on all coat types.
All of these 4 hydrating products will help in keeping the coat in better condition and reduce the likelihood of matting and tangles.
Having a good shampoo and conditioner has already been stressed. However, there are several other good products you can use to maintain the coat and make the process less stressful.
OMG Grooming Spray is one of the best coat care products available for you to use in between baths. The product can be spritzed on the coat before using your brush or comb to help with tangles. It is perfect for use in between washing or grooming sessions.
If your dog has a curly coat, be aware that the hair will need extra care. Grooming unruly coats or brushing a curly-coated dog is not difficult; however, they generally require more brushing. Use OMG Grooming Spray during brushing to prevent curls from tangling and to remove dirt and grime from the coat more thoroughly.
There are a number of good products available to help control mats and tangles. Be sure to check out some of the products mentioned above. To find the right products for your breed, have a look at our Breed Grooming Articles.
