Matted Coats

Knotted and matted coats – Often matted coats happen because the dogs guardian/owner isn’t familiar with the double coated breeds and how to care for them in between grooms. This is something I can help you with. First of all, I need to make the dog comfortable then I can offer advice on what brushes to use and how to maintain the coat mid groom, so please don’t be worried about asking. The sooner you bring your dog to me then the kinder it is for them.

If the coat is in a poor state there may be an extra charge. The reason for this is because it will take extra time to get through the knots and if matted it will take longer to remove the coat plus my blades and scissors will need to be sharpened more often as they go blunt quicker, which is costly.

When a coat is in a poor state it is really uncomfortable for the dog as they can not self regulate their temperature (they will overheat in summer as the skin can’t breath and they will be cold in winter as the undercoat will remain damp). A matted coat will pull tight on the skin causing the skin to become sore and itchy and can lead to infections. If the coat is found to be in poor condition it will need to be clipped very short and can be re-shaped at the next visit.
