Best Dog De-tangler Sprays for Knots & Matted Fur - Smiley Dog


AVOCADO & VANILLA DE-TANGLER - 250MLShiny, smooth, and tangle-free hair is the pride of your furry best friend. Simply watching their untangled hair swaying in the wind and reflecting sunshine can fulfil your heart with affection. However, jumping into leaf piles and rolling around the mud can impact their shiny hair significantly. Often such scenarios result in hair knots and matted fur, which can cause discomfort to your dog and make brushing a challenging task. If the condition worsens, knotted and matted hair can cause discomfort to your dog and harbour dangerous bacteria. You may even have to ask your Groomer to shave off the matted / tangled area to encourage new hair growth across the coat.


One of the best ways to tackle knots and matted fur is using a dog detangler. Applying a detangler spray on your dog's coat can help loosen knots and reduce the chances of matting. Although detanglers cannot replace a much-needed brushing session, they can make the detangling job easier and provide comfort to your furry friend.

What is a Detangling Spray?

Detangling sprays are liquid solutions used to soften and lubricate the fur of your dog. The solution makes it easier to brush any loose knot or matted fur. Detangling sprays are often used to loosen stubborn knots and prevent chances of hair breakage or damage. These must-have sprays can also help condition and protect your dog's coat while ensuring less static. If your pooch is developing knots often and experiencing discomfort, detangling spray can help ease the issue and remove difficult, stubborn knots.

Why Use a Detangling Spray?

Detangling spray is a must-have dog product essential every pet parent should own. The solution can prevent uncomfortable matting or knots in your dog's fur and ensure an untangled smooth coat. Here are a few reasons to use detangling spray on your furry friend's coat:

  • Reduces discomfort (soft fluffy coat)
  • Helps to dislodge dirt and bacteria (straightens out hair)
  • Reduces need to shave off badly matted hair (what a relief!)
  • Reduces skin issues (air circulates better-  around coat/skin)
