How Often to Groom Your Koolie
Dogs with short coats frequently require less brushing and grooming compared to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more easily.
Some very short-haired canines may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should observe the condition of their dog's coat, searching for any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
