About Bathing the Coat Type
The bathing process for the tight curly coat type can require more time than other coat types due to the texture and the length of the coat especially if you are creating a show trim such as the Continental or the English Saddle on a Poodle or the full jacket trim style for the Portuguese Water Dog. A massage bathing method is used to cleanse the coat to prevent tangling. This coat requires more products during the bathing phase than many of the other coat types to properly maintain and bring this coat to its best.
