Protect Your Maltipoo’s Luscious Locks With This DIY Detangling Guide

Protect Your Maltipoo’s Luscious Locks With This DIY Detangling Guide

You may love your Maltipoo more than anything in the world. But their beautiful coat can become a real mess, with tangles and knots appearing faster than you can get rid of them.

Although it can take some work, there are easy tricks that can help you groom your Maltipoo and detangle their fur.

Essential Grooming Tools

  • Brush

A good slicker brush is going to be the best tool for detangling your Maltipoo. Choose one with thin wires.

  • Undercoat rake

This will help you reach the root of tangles, making it easier to break up tough knots.

  • Mat splitter

Mat splitters are small, serrated blades that can cut through knots. Only use it in the event of some serious tangles, and always keep the blade pointed away from your dog.

  • Comb

A dog comb is one of the best ways to pull your way through thick tangles. The long, sharp teeth can detangle fur better than most brushes. However, be careful with combs, making sure not to press down too hard.

Go See A Pro

If you’re still having problems with your Maltipoo’s tangled locks, you should head to a professional groomer. Although it will cost some money, they can do a better job of busting tough mats and tangles without doing any harm to your dog’s coat.

Some dogs that have tangles all over their body may need a full body shave. It may be sad to cut off so much hair, but it can make you and your dog’s life a lot easier.
