Long coat

Long coat or drop coats are continually growing and considered non-shedding. Breed standard for long coated breeds is as is, requiring only a trim. Brushing/combing is required at least three times a week otherwise mats, knots and tangles will definitely form. If coat is not brushed/combed frequently, coat will become problematic causing poor air circulation to the skin which in turn will become inflamed and/or infected.

Breeds Include: Afghan Hound, Bearded Collie, Briard, Old English Sheepdog, Skye Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Lowchen, Tibetan Terrier, Chinese Crested – powderpuff, Chinese Crested – hairless, Havanese, Maltese, Shin Tzu, Silky Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier.

Curly/wavy/fleece coat

This coat type is also considered non-shedding and is soft, curly, wavy or fleecy. Regular brushing/combing is required, at least 3 times a week to prevent knots, tangles, mats from forming. These dogs can hold allergens against their skin so use conditioners that soften the coat and prevent tangling to keep skin healthy.

Breeds Include: Irish Water Spaniel, Afghan Hound, Skye Terrier, Kerry Blue Terrier, Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier, Bedlington, Portuguese Water Dog, Lhasa Apso, Lowchen, Tibetan Terrier, Bichon Frise, Poodle, Chinese Crested – powderpuff, Havanese, Maltese, Shih Tzu, Silky Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier, Bouvier des Flandres, Old English Sheepdog.
