LONG | DROP COAT
Long coats, sometimes also known as drop coats, can be coarse or silky.
All long haired coats continually grow and require brushing or combing at least three times a week
otherwise mats, knots and tangles will form.
Long, coarse coats have a soft undercoat that needs to be brushed with a pin brush and a smooth bristle brush.
Some silky haired dogs, such as Setters and Spaniels, don't have undercoats, but their fine hair can still tangle.
To assist with regular brushing & combing use a detangling spray.
causing poor air circulation to the skin which in turn will become inflamed and/or infected.
Always use a shampoo rich in conditioners
to avoid pulling on the fur and causing your pet any pain.
After shampooing, always use a conditioner to add strength and shine and if possible,
dry the dog's fur with a hair dryer after bathing and then do another brush-out of the coat.
A shine spray or conditioning spray can be used to keep coat shiny, and smelling fresh in between washes.
