Imagine not brushing your hair for 6 months. Well thats how mats happen in dogs. We can all miss a bit when brushing the dog and these individual knots can be removed by a groomer but sometimes things go too far and the whole coat must be clipped clean off.
Its so important to keep on top of your dogs grooming
Felting is when a dogs coat has been left so long the mats / knots develop into one big fleecy type blanket at this point serious helth issues occur. Its like a straigt jacket for your dog. See our page dedicated to mats for more detail.
