Mastering Oodle Grooming: It's all in the coat

Oodle coats come in all different shapes, sizes and varieties! These coat types have different characteristics and grooming needs and understanding their individual grooming requirements is essential for ensuring the health and happiness of your furry friend!

What kind of coat does your oodle have?

Fleece Coat:

  • Fleece coats are soft, fluffy, and often have a wavy or curly texture. They resemble wool but are typically finer and less dense. These can get unruly quick so maintenance is super important!

  • Grooming Needs:

    • Regular brushing (3-4 times a week, if not daily) with a slicker brush and comb to prevent matting and tangling.

    • Professional grooming every 6-8 weeks for shaping and maintenance and occasional trimming to keep the coat neat. 

Wool Coat:

  • Wool coats are dense, curly, and have a texture similar to sheep's wool (um, cute). They often have tighter curls and a thicker feel compared to fleece coats. Let's hear it for the curly girl method. 

  • Grooming Needs:

    • Regular brushing (3-4 times a week, if not daily) with a slicker brush and comb to prevent matting and remove loose fur.

    • Regular trimming to prevent matting and maintain the coat's shape and length. Professional grooming every 6-8 weeks for thorough care and shaping.

Combination Coat:

  • Combination coats combine characteristics of both fleece and wool coats. Just to keep you on your toes, ya know?! They may have varying textures, with some areas being more fleece-like and others more wool-like.

  • Grooming Needs:

    • Regular brushing (3-4 times a week, if not daily) with a slicker brush and comb to manage both fleece-like and wool-like areas.

    • Trimming as needed to maintain an even appearance across different coat textures. Professional grooming every 6-8 weeks for comprehensive care and maintenance.

 Hair Coat:

  • Hair coats have a straight or slightly wavy texture, resembling traditional dog fur rather than the curly or wool-like texture of fleece and wool coats. But don't be fooled, they still need some love. 

  • Grooming Needs:

    • Regular brushing (2-3 times a week) with a slicker brush or comb to remove loose fur and prevent tangling.

    • Regular tidy up to ensure the coat is maintained may be all that is required for a hair coat
