It is very easy Abbey. All your mum has to do is use a Blow dryer set on a low to medium setting (don't want to get Abbey to hot) and brush out her hair while she dries it. It takes a while before the hair starts to dry but then it goes rather quickly. It takes my mum about 45 minutes for a bath and blow out. A good conditioner will make the brushing easier. Your mum may want to invest in a pet dryer. They are usually quieter and do not get too hot like human hair dryers.

wave Everything in the last post is correct. I thought I would ad a couple of things. First the hair you are blow drying must be wet to straighten. Hair you are drying must be completely dry or it will curl back up. Do you know what line brushing is-just a small amount at a time. It is a good idea to put a towel over the rest of your puppy to keep the hair damp. I am no pro at thiis, but read in a book and did for awhile. Keep a spray bottle of water near. And get a pet dryer, pets cannot take the heat. That's very important! Good luck!applauseapplauseapplauseapplauseapplause

Abbey, it is because you are only just a little pup. It takes till your about 18 months old for your under coat to grow in. The under coat it stiff and helps keep your hair standing up and poofy. When I was a puppy I always had a mohawk. All the hair on my head would not stand up except the middle BOL!! I looked like a white Mr T. BOL!!
