    Default Matted Dog Season

    it must be that time of year again, because I am starting to get in all the poor little matted to the skin darlings that owners have not groomed through winter, most common excuse 'i didn't want to get him clipped in case he got cold', if only they would listen when told if clipped every couple of months, we can keep them a bit longer and with a shorter coat they will also dry quicker if they do get wet. I feel so sorry for them, but love seeing how happy they feel after.

    Yes I do see dog owners get so angry as their dogs clipped too close as they let their dogs so matted. But sometimes I wonder it is necessary to be like at least #7, then again I would not know how badly matted those dogs were. What # do you normally use for matted dogs?

    For boys, I tell them that I have to be cruel to be kind.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    I try not to go shorter than a #5, but some just have to have a #7.

    I brush my Cavalier to keep knots away, so she doesn't get matted no matter what the season is.

    Honestly, it's all year round. 8 of the 10 people that bring their dogs should be GRRRR
    those poor dogs where the coat is so mattered the whole coat can be taken off in one piece. And sometimes their ears bleed due to the pressure of the matts. And the amount of time you see flea infestations and cysts makes me sick. And its the same breeds.
    Rant over.
    Yes I work near a grooming salon.

    I knew there was some reason I picked a dog with a short (double) coat.

    seriously I do not know how people leave their dogs that bad. I think I have reasonably high maintenance dogs and I walk them every day without fail, even so it only takes literally a few minutes (if it is not shorter) to go through. In spring you really have to be careful with weed seeds etc as they can get into skins etc.


    hehe I think i use etc etc too many.

    This is why I keep both my boys clipped to a 10! (Bichon Frise and Staffy/terrier mix respectively). I see enough matting in my line of work. :@


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...
