Upon arrival we will evaluate the severeness of the matting and discuss with the owner how to proceed. If the matting is salvageable and the owner is willing to pay for the extra time spent to avoid a shave down, we will do everything within reason to make a matted dog look fabulous.

However there are some issues that go along with de-matting a dog:

- De-matting can ruin their coat;
- De-matting is very time consuming;
- and most importantly: de-matting is unpleasant for the dog therefore creates a not-so-fun day at the spa. We want your dog to have a good experience with us!

Proper and regular brushing combined with a good grooming schedule eliminates this problem.
