Best Untangler Tools for Grooming Curly Coats

Curly coat breeds are considered non-shedding and most often this coat type is soft, curly, wavy or fleecy. Regular brushing/combing is required, at least 3 times a week to prevent knots, tangles, mats from forming. 

Breeds Include: Irish Water Spaniel, 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.

Dogs with curly coats tend to be low-shed dogs. This is great news if you don’t want hair all over your house.  In addition many who are allergic to dogs can tolerate curly coated pets. 

Low shed, curly coated dogs, do shed a little, and loose hair gets caught in their curly coats. If not regularly groomed, this trapped hair forms knots and eventually mats in your curly coated dog.  In addition to being unsightly, bacteria can get trapped under mats and cause skin irritation and sores. There is a tendency for these breeds to collect debris in their hair on their face, in the ears, between toes, around the mouth which is unsightly and can cause health problems.

Untangler Grooming Tools for Curly/Wavy Fleece Coats



Check the coat for mats and tangles first. Use your fingers to tease mats apart and then use your brush to work them out; if they are stubborn, you may need to use a de-matter. Work gently from the skin towards the end of the coat length and then brush the knot away. 

Use Untangler PRO/T906PRO Brush and brush from the neck area toward the tail. Take a section of hair and part it with your fingers so that the skin is visible. Brush the hair from root to tip, starting right down to the skin. If the hair is thick, you may need to start at the end and gradually work your way to bushing from the skin to the end.

Do dogs feel better after being brushed?

Regular grooming relaxes the dog who’s used to it, and it becomes a special time that you can both share.

It makes you feel good, and the effect is the same for your pet.

Special Info on Brushing the Dogs Tail

Many owners are not familiar with how to brush out their dogs tail and are leery of hurting their dog by handing his or her tail, which is part of the dog’s spine. Done carefully, there are several options for brushing your dog’s tail so that it looks great and protects your dog’s delicate tail area.

From a dog’s perspective most dogs are not super crazy about having their tails touched or handled–they definitely don’t want the hair on their tail pulled! Dogs may be sensitive, because tails often get injured by being slammed in doors, or stepped on, so they are nervous of having them handled. Also, the tail is part of your dog’s spine and a sensitive body part they will try to protect. 

Preparation: Working to avoid pulling tail hair and making your dog comfortable with having their tail brushed will be necessary to get your dog’s full cooperation in the tail brushing procedure. 


Wrap hand around tail grab the base of your dog’s tail, hold the tail bone in your hand with your thumb on one side, and wrap your fingers around so that the dangling hair lays on your splayed fingers.


Depending on your preference, select the Untangler Pro Brush. Brush from root to tip of the section of the tail you are holding, with hair laying against your fingers to prevent hair from moving and to support hair and tailbone so pulling of hair is at a minimum.


Work each section move your hand down the tail as you complete brushing each section, moving down to the tip of the tail. Continue holding the tail bone with hand and thumb and resting fanned tail hair against splayed fingers as you brush each section.


Work out mats when you encounter a tangle or mat, use a mat splitter, fingers or small Untangler pet comb to gently work out mat or snarls. Continue holding and supporting the tail.


Finish brushing and then use a small Untangler Comb to locate any knots you missed.
