How can I prevent mats?

To prevent mats, speak to your professional groomer to set up a regular grooming schedule. Most coated breeds require a 4-6 week schedule, depending on how long the coat is kept. Brushing at home frequently along with bathing, brushing, and a trim at your groomer regularly will keep your pet’s coat healthy and vibrant. For short coated pets or pets who are shaved short, longer periods between grooms are fine, but they still require a visit to your groomer no more than 8-10 weeks. If you prefer a longer coat more frequent grooming appointments can be planned. Many pet owners believe a trip to the groomer will end up with a shaved pet. That will only happen if your pet is matted. A professionally trained groomer can maintain a long, healthy coat.
