Smile Calling All Cottony-Coated Fluffs!

Hey guys! So I'm pretty sure that my puppy has a cottony coat. I know that grooming needs are a little different for cottony-coated Maltese than for silky Maltese, but it's been difficult for me in researching grooming to find Maltese that actually have cottony coats! So for those of you who do have Maltese of the more cottony variety, I would love to see some pics of your pups to get some grooming style inspo for when my little cotton puff of a princess arrives!

Can't wait to see all your cottony cuties!

Sorry, I have a silk coated girl (thank God). I dog-sat a cotton coated Malt one time and the coat was a nightmare to deal with. It matted every single day and was very staticky. My girl only needs to be brushed about once a week and she rarely mats.

Pipper has a cottony coat but I keep him cut short. When he goes to the groomer he comes home looking half the size he was when he went there because his hair gets so poofy looking when it needs to be cut. I have never had a problem with matt's but that might be because I don't let his hair get long.

Thanks for the info guys! Pipper is absolutely precious! I'm hoping that if I brush her everyday, matting won't be too much of an issue. I like the idea of her being a little fluff ball but I don't want to let her fur get too long so that it's more likely to mat.

Her parents' coats are definitely more puffy looking but they are very straight with no curl, so I'm hoping that will help since it seems like curlier fluff is more likely to mat?

Jodi has a cottony coat and there are some photos in my albums. I'm not sure which ones are there but I will check. And maybe post others I have later, that are better examples.
