I'm not complaining, we still love our toy poodle, I'm just suprised that no one has ever mentioned that from around 6 mo. to a year, we'll need to brush his hair daily.
The "mats" on Huxley are just like clumps of tangled hair. We have always brushed him every single day so that's not a change it just takes a little longer to make sure the matted parts are (gently) combed out. He has a long-ish puppy coat right now though...I mean it's not a show clip but it's not a sporting clip either. I'd think if his hair was a lot shorter it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

I had heard about coat change before I got him and his breeder went over it with us before we took him home so I was expecting it - but now that it's here it's making me think I'm going to have to cut off all his beautiful puppy hair just to remain sane! LOL Good thing I did the group buy on Les Pooches brushes awhile back!! haha

Default Please don't let your poodle get like this...

Here are examples of extreme matting. These are what you call "once a year clients" - they let their poodles get matted so bad that they are shaved to the skin once a year, and then the whole process starts over. Owners like this wonder why their poodle can never have a nice haircut.

For puppies, coat change is rough, but these dogs are far from puppies yet the hair can still mat. You also don't want to know what was in their ears! Think of corded poodles. That type of hair, matted dreads with icky brown, nasty smelling ear wax was in their ear! Getting the ear hair plucked once a ear is not a walk in the park.

Please take your poodle for frequent baths, blowdries, and brush-outs! Or you can do it from home.

I never knew about the puppies shedding. I expect the coat to change to a more coarse coat as they get older. My puppies are 9 and 7 months old. Have no problems with shedding and matting?? Perhaps it is still to come? I take them for grooming every 5-6 weeks. They are going this weekend again. In between grooming I wash them every 1-2 weeks and dry and brush them.

@tokipoke. It is terrible that people can neglect their poodle so much. I guess that poodle feels much better now!! Look at that personality coming out!!
