The Puli, Komondor, and Bergamasco have unforgettable thick, curly locks that set them apart from other dogs. Under these adorable blankets of fur are canine friends who love to play. However, these dogs with dreads are not the easiest to maintain in terms of coat care. Their luscious coats can be traps for dirt and have the tendency to matt. To keep these dogs tidy, happy, and healthy, you need to invest time and effort into maintaining their gorgeous locks. How do you manage dogs with a coat that requires so much maintenance? The answer is simply tender loving care - and a lot of patience. Running out in the mud and rain may be fun for canines but this can lead to hours of coat care for dogs with dreads. Staying out in the sun for a long time is also bad because there is a chance the dog will overheat under their coat. While you have the option of shaving or clipping the fur of the dog, the charm and beauty of their fabulous coat will be lost. If you're committed to taking care of your dog's long locks, you will have a unique and friendly furry friend with a good personality. Here is a list of corded-coat friendly activities that will exercise your beloved mop-lookalike!
Corded dogs are not for the lazy or the faint of heart. Every single dreadlock requires attention on top of the existing basic needs of your dog. Pulling apart each cord is a labor of love that is a necessity, not just an option. Consider each activity that you and your companion partake in, to make sure they are appropriate in regards to the coat of your dog. If you've fallen in love with the charming, shaggy dog look of these wonderful dogs, by all means, adopt one! Just be prepared for the work you have to put into grooming, watching, and training them. You will be rewarded with a handsome dog with a beautiful personality. In the end, you will have a loyal and intelligent companion that will turn heads with their adorable fluffy look, as well as love and protect you to the best of their ability!
