As a Doodle owner, I’m sure you know all too well the risk of tangles and mats. Luckily, there are lots of products out there that can make our lives easier when it comes to detangling and dematting Doodle hair. But in this video, we’re specifically going to demonstrate dog detangler spray MarshMello Dematt on Chloe’s (F1 Goldendoodle) very tangled fan tail. Let’s get into it and be sure to watch the video below to follow along!
Before we get into it, though, I’d love to share with you Whitney and Chloe’s

First, a word on this MarshMello product. This is a 98% plant-based product that is silicone-free. Silicone, also known as dimethicone, can really dry out the coat, but since MarshMello Dematt is silicone-free, it is totally safe for everyday use without damaging your Doodle’s coat. We also love that it’s plant-based so you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals or negative side effects.
How to Use Dog Detangling Spray
Let’s first start off by trying to comb through Chloe’s tail. Just watch the video above and you can see how tangled it is. The comb won’t budge in most parts of her tail. However, the hair isn’t matted – just tangled and knotty, which means we can anticipate spending less time detangling the hair.
Typically, you shouldn’t need a lot of dog detangler spray – especially if it’s silicone-based. You really just need a light mist. However, as per MarshMello’s instructions, spray this stuff in liberally. By the time I’m done spraying you can see that Chloe’s tail is fairly wet with the product.
Let sit for 30 seconds to allow it to absorb into the hair, and then use a wide tooth comb to dematt and detangle.
Start at the ends and work your way up to the base of the hair.
You can see that within a few seconds of combing the comb just starts to slide right through.
A small portion of Chloe’s tail took me about three or four minutes to detangle with the MarshMello Dematt dog detangler spray. I’m sure it would’ve taken me less time if it weren’t for my perfectionism.
Either way, whether the tangles are mild or the mats are serious, you can use this stuff on anywhere on your Doodle to save some time and elbow grease!
