This is a demonstration of how I save a matted coat. Whether you should try to save a matted coat or not should be decided on a case-by-case basis. Every situation is different: the coat type, the age and temperament of the dog are just a few things to consider. We hope this video helps you if you have made the decision to try to save the coat rather than shave and start over. Grooming is love in action – a labor of love. Let us not forget the “action” and “labor” involved in expressing our love.
