It is important to both brush and comb or else you will get tangles. Brush out and then comb out. Having a tiny set of clippers for any mats is helpful. Do not use scissors at getting mats out because they are often close to the skin. Brush the teeth with doggie toothpaste or gel twice each day. I do not use product daily, just shampoo once a week. Get a fine tooth comb for the face. Casper loves grooming time; Luck not so much. With Luck we went to the groomers every 6 weeks. Casper does not mat a d is so easy to groom, I am doing 8 weeks between groomer appointments with him.
Every morning after the girls breakfast I brush their teeth, I use Bausch and Lomb advanced eye relief eye wash around their eyes with a q tips
I then use Chris Christensen Ice on Ice Ultra dematting spray when I find a mat
I then comb their hair fix their topknot and brush Geneva in the evening, Maddie has a thin fine coat that doesn't mat often, but Geneva has a very thick heavy beautiful coat so I spend time brushing her, sometimes I brush their teeth in the evening
I use to take the girls to the groomers every 6 weeks, but I am growing their coats, so I groom their feet and private areas weekly at bath time
Cute fluff, congratulations!
I use Les Pooch products on my three. Have every CC comb and brush but my new go-to is the wet brush flex. It’s really flexible and doesn’t pull on them. Detangles very well.
I try to brush their teeth daily, my two Korean fluffs had very bad teeth and had a lot of their teeth removed very young. The dental specialist recommended Virbac tooth paste. In fact, if you go to dog dental association, they list all approved products by them for plaque and tarter. It’s very important to get your boy used to brushing, especially if he is on the smaller side because their mouths are so small and teeth are crowded.
Best of luck to you.
