Mixed Coats Have Great Variations
Many dogs sport a combination of two or more coat types, rendering them a mixed coat. With the rise in popularity of “designer dogs,” mixed breeds are one of the most common coat types we see. Their genetic combinations can result in some very unique and beautiful textures, patterns, and lengths. But it can also provide difficult hair that can leave both owner and groomer stumped as to what to do with it.
Combine Home Care & Pro Grooming
For these coats, I recommend (as always) brushing and combing them regularly at home. And after you’ve established with your groomer what kind of care your dog’s coat will need, it’s important to also bring them in as often as it’s recommended to you.
Not all mixed coats are created equally. Some mixed breed dogs can go months without a haircut, and some can barely go six weeks without one! Work closely with your groomer to determine what works best for you and your dog.
