Fur Coats

The various fur coats:

Curly coats are defined thick with soft curls or waves.  It rests close to the body.  For curly coats, each season pet grooming keeps curly coats manageable and deters harmful mats from forming.  It also improves comfort.

Double coats need extra care during the transition from summer into fall. As their winter coat grows in, their thick undercoat and topcoat can easily get matted and tangled, making fall pet grooming particularly important.

Hairless coats dogs will need minimum brushing or none.  Still, grooming is important to ensure overall health and comfort for the skin and hair that does exist around the face and paws. Without a protective layer of hair, dogs with hairless coats have particularly sensitive skin.  Organic shampoo will also nourish the skin with proper vitamins.

Long coats can be especially challenging.  There are two categories: long, coarse coats with a soft undercoat, or a long, silky coat with no undercoat. Both long coat versions include fine hair, which puts a greater risk for matting and tangling.  Brushing becomes vital to keep your dog healthy and comfortable.

Smooth coats need focus on quality, not quantity. These dogs have short, single-layer coats that lie close to the body. As summer changes into fall, these coats will continue to hold their luster and shine with routine brushings.



Wire coats consist of a soft, short undercoat with a rigorous, coarse outer coat. With a mixture of bristly and soft textures, fall pet grooming for wire coats can be tricky.
