Here at Dogfather we prefer not to shave your dog if we can help it. In some cases, a dog’s coat can get so tangled that their fur is no longer brush-able, leaving the groomer with no choice but to cut the hair off. The length of the haircut will depend on how much space there is between the matt and the skin’s surface. Matts usually tend to be very close to the skin, making the cut extremely short.
Dog parents need to understand that excessive de-matting can be a very painful and dangerous process for your pet. As our groomers are only interested in the well being of your furry family member, we will not attempt to de-matt excessive matting. We will assess each case individually and discuss options with you. We NEVER shave a dog without consulting you first, so don’t worry, there will be no surprises here.
