Koolie Breed Maintenance
Although the Koolie can come in either a short, single-layer coat or a slightly longer double-layered coat, the grooming requirements for the breed are pretty similar across the board. They only need bathing on an occasional basis, and more frequent bathing may strip their coats of the natural oils that help to make their coats somewhat water and weather resistant. Both varieties shed moderately and will need brushing with a slicker brush, stiff bristle brush, or rubber curry comb one to three times a week, but the slightly longer coat may require the use of a comb as well. The double-coated variety may be prone to heavier shedding around the change of seasons and may need additional brushing sessions during that time. The teeth of the Koolie should be brushed three times a week, and the nails cut monthly.
