Dogs have either single or double density coats…What does your dog have?
Single/Smooth Coats: Dogs with single coats have outer guard hairs, but they have no inner layer or undercoat.
Double Coats: A double-density coat has outer guard hairs with an undercoat that is shorter and finer. The undercoat can be thick or thin as well as downy. Herding and working dogs usually have a double coat.
Curly Coats: (Poodles, Bichons)
Long “Drop” Coats: (Shih tzu, Lhasa Apso, Yorkie, Maltese)
Hairless Coats: (Chinese Crested)
Each of these coat types require different grooming techniques. I will cover each type thoroughly, so check back frequently for updates!
