I have been asked many times about how to keep a Fluffy Corgi well groomed and clean like Tibby. I decided to write this rather comprehensive blog post as a resource for other owners of Fluffies, and applies to basically any long haired, double coated breed.
Fluffy Corgis are the result of a recessive coat mutation, which means that their coats are quite different from those of regular Corgis. Their coats are a different texture and that also means there is a different way of caring for their coats.
From my experience and speaking with my groomer, as well as other fluffy corgi owners, I have complied several must knows for keeping your Fluffy well groomed and happy.
1. Invest in a Furminator! (And accept no substitutes).
You need a Furminator in your arsenal. When you are drowning in the biannual shed (corgi owners joke, “our dogs sheds twice a year, from January – June, and June – December” ), you will need this magic tool on your side. I recommend slowly introducing your dog to this item, by rewarding your dog every time you brush, either with praise or treats, and then lengthening your grooming sessions. You will need to Furminate your Fluffy on a WEEKLY basis during shedding season, and every 3-4 weeks during non-shedding season.
We chose to use the Long Hair DeShedder for Medium sized dogs.
2. Use a Greyhound Comb for Weekly Grooming
A greyhound comb is a must have for weekly brushing during the non-shed season. During shed season, use it with conjunction with the Furminator to brush out the fine under hairs stuck in the fluff ball’s fur.
3. Bathe Your FluffBall with a Quality Shampoo
It is important to wash your Fluff with a quality shampoo. No matter how great the shampoo is, you should wash your dog sparingly as shampooing will strip the natural oils out of their hair. That being said, when your dog decides to take a mud-bath on a rainy day, its probably time for a bath. We bathe Tibby once every 6 weeks to keep her hair nice and soft.
