Of course, prevention is always better than cure. Therefore, the best approach to maintain your dog’s coat is to clean the coat on a daily basis to prevent the development of mats.
Tangles are usually easy to avoid if you groom your dog regularly. Dogs with fine coats as well as dogs with long-haired coats with a thick undercoat will quickly develop a mat problem if you don’t brush it regularly. Especially if your dog likes to be outdoors, because then it’s likely that your dog will find and pick up blackberries, sticks and leaves that can make his coat develop mats even faster.
