Coat type: This is a curly coated dog that doesn’t shed a lot, but will knot up if brushing and combing is not kept up daily.
Breed with a similar coat: Bichon Frisé
Tools & products: A slicker brush (a pet brush with short metal curved pins that will also help remove any knots and tangles) and a pet comb.
How to bathe: Not recommended to bathe this breed yourself due to them having one of the more difficult coats for home grooming.
How to brush: Use the slicker to brush his coat and remove knots and tangles. After, brush through his coat with a regular comb to check that tangles were removed. If there are still knots, repeat until they are all gone. If your Poodle's coat is too knotted, consult a groomer.
How to clean ears: His ears may have hair that needs to be removed. Let a professional clean them.
Professional groomer visits: No less than every six weeks
