    That hurts the dog. Cut the mats out. The hair will grow back. I hate when people are so anal. I am a groomer with 18 years experience. Just brush your dog and they wont get matted. If you rescue a dog with lots of mats shave it. I will never demat a dog even if the owner says I will pay you extra. How would you like it?

    …What the hell are you talking about, they sheer the knot out, how the hell else are you going to get it out. Dogs just don't stand there if they're being hurt. This one isn't.

    man you dog nuts are fcking retards.. seriously!

    You act like experts and don't even understand dogs. If the dog is hurt, HE'LL LET YOU KNOW.

    I would say looks abusive but I would say she was not being abusive; if the dog would have been pained he would have done something… HELLO PEOPLE?? dogs are not stupid, they do know when something hurts ¬¬…

    @SakumaRyuichiNG While I'm with you on the fact that she wasn't doing anyting to hurt the dog at all. I disagree with the second half of your statement. There are dogs that feel pain, but don't show it. Not all dogs will screech/bark/bite/growl the moment something hurts. Same with humans, while everyone has a different pain tolerance, some humans (or dogs) are capable of handling pain better.

    @gillybird86 Well, there you have a point; it's after all, like in humans, their personality probably.

    @jackiedogster You are so right!!! By cutting the mats out, you save the dog a lot of pain. Good for you!!!

    @Justas181 First desensitize him to the brush and tub/wherever you wash him, more than likely he probably starts getting nervous just seeing the brush and or tub. Reward him for calm behavior in the bathroom. Reward him for staying calm when you place the brush at his paws or in front of him. If you taught him the "shake" or "gimme paw" command, hold the brush in your hand and get him to touch it and reward him. Finally reward him for letting you brush him. do the same thing during baths

    That looks very painful how she takes that brush and rushes it through the dogs hair, but I GUESS she knows what shes doing.

    PetSmart shaved my dog completely for two mats, after trying to demat him. Another groomer simply cut an mats out with grooming scissors. Now, I groom my dog myself, and I cut the mats out with a pair of grooming scissors. It's painless and quick. I will never demat my dog, because that's just torture.

    @yoyoluc If you brush him the first time he wouldn't be matted! You brush your hair every day don't you?

    @tamithomas Are you drying your lhaso with hot heat? I suggest getting a product called "The Stuff" it will help with the matting issue you are having. GLAD you understand you can't have a full coated Lhaso and just shave him. 😀

    Mats behind ears, arms pits, bums, bellies, tails, even under the chin can be shaved and hidden, yes you want to eliminate mats in a comfortable fashion but you also want the groom to look good… there are some cases where the dog is matted right down to the skin and shaving is really the only thing you can do, unless you want to spend several days in half and hour increments grooming the dog (good for you and the dog) that owner will be paying a ton.. please owners learn to brush properly!

    Hmmm I de-matt my own hair after getting up in the morning and it doesn't hurt, lol

    Needs more info and more technic on actually removing the matted hair

    Then find another groomer. I've been a groomer for 22 years who takes on difficult to groom dogs and I've never refused to groom any pet. Sure, there are ones that I dread seeing but I owe it to the dog to help maintain it's coat. My guess it that your new pet isn't used to being groomed and therefore is very scared of the sounds and feelings of the equipment. Find that good goomer who will teach your dogs how to get groomed and then never let it get back into that condition. Good luck!

    That's a tangle. A dog's hair mats. The anatomy of a mat and a tangle are completely different. A dog's mat has burrs that grab onto surrounding hairs. You can't use a conditioner on a dog and get their mats out. Trust me. I've been grooming for 22 years in a rural community. I've seen mats!
