Although many grooming needs are universal, regardless of a dog’s breed, there are a number of ways that you should groom to your dog’s specific coat type. In this book, we will look at how to groom the curly-haired coat, which can be easy or difficult to care for, depending on the dog.
Before we launch into the book, however, I would like to start by listing a number of popular dog breeds that are known for having curly-haired coats. Please bear in mind that the list only covers AKC-registered breeds. There are many other dog breeds, including designer breeds, that have this type of coat and will need the grooming considerations detailed in this book.
Breeds that have curly-haired coats are:
- American Water Spaniel
- Bichon Frise
- Chesapeake Bay Retriever
- Curly-Coated Retriever
- Irish Water Spaniel
- Kerry Blue Terrier
- Portuguese Water Dog
