How to care for your poodle and oodle in between professional grooms...

Updated: Dec 14, 2022

Does your #oodleX mat and starts to look like it has #dreadlocks?


Do you feel hopeless trying to #brushout these #knots and #mats off your dog?


If you have found yourself owning a #singlecoated dog that is #hypoallergenic and #nonshedding, you'll know that the dead, old #coat stays on your #dog (instead of coming off on your sofa or your clothes). Single coated #breeds like #poodles and #oodles may not shed (as much), but this doesn't mean they don't #mat!!!


So how come despite all your efforts, your #dog is a #matted mess?


First of all, #breeds prone to #matting need to be regularly #groomedprofessionally (usually every 6-8 weeks) to ensure the #coat is #healthy and well maintained.


The right tools need to be used for daily #brushing (such as #pinbrush, #slickerbrush, #metalcomb etc).


The right #shampoos, #conditioners, #detanglers need to be used regularly.


#Fluffdrying is highly recommended with a #velocitydryer.


In between #fullgrooms, you'll need to book for professional #tidyupappointments which include a good #brushout, #bath, #dry and trimming the dog's face, feet, pads, tail, hygiene areas and looking after the nails, teeth and anal glands.


#Mats are a serious #health concern. Sometimes, mats cause bruising and blistering to the #skin and lead to #infections, fungal and bacterial issues, open sores, and foul odor. Often, faeces and urine get trapped in the #matting. Grass seeds, thorns, sticks etc can also get trapped in the #mats. Irritation and pain is often common when your dog's coat is matted. When the dog tries to find some relief by licking these areas, it causes #infections that can lead to serious #health issues.


The only way to avoid these serious health issues is by #booking your #dog for regular #doggrooming appointments and maintain their #coat in between #professionalgrooming sessions by daily #brushing and proper #bathing and #drying techniques.


And remember, prevention is better than a complete #shave off....
