The Basics: Understanding Poodle Fur
While other dogs have two layers of fur that grow to a particular length, then shed, Poodles hair can get tangled and form mats easily. That’s why it’s so important to bathe, groom, and brush your pup regularly.
Follow this step-by-step guide for how to groom a Standard Poodle:
Step 1: Brush your dog’s coat. Use a Andis slicker brush to remove all knots and tangles. This makes sure that you completely clear your dog’s coat from dirt or residue during the bathing process.
