Coat & Coat Care
It is desirable for their long coat to be wavy or curly. Dogs with straighter coats may trigger allergies.
These curly coats can mat and irritate their skin, so thoroughly brush your pup 2-3 times a week. Some owners prefer to trim the coat every few months to make grooming easier. Bathe infrequently to protect the coat’s natural protective oils.
