Matted hair - Become a dog groomer.

Grooming is an important aspect of dog care, and it’s crucial to ensure your furry friend’s coat is well-maintained. However, matted hair is a common issue for dogs, and it can cause discomfort and skin irritation if left untreated. Teasing out those matted knots can be difficult, not to mention painful for the dog. We have all experienced how removing knots can pull on the skin. Many pet owners wonder whether they should use dog clippers for matted hair.
