|I'd shave, less work you and less pain for your dog. I don't think trimmed ears look drastically different from untrimmed, btw, so i wouldn't worry about that
My mum won't let me cut the ear fluff on our dog when she gets ear mats, and I have combed out my own dreadlocks so i transfer that experience to the mats. What I do is hold the mat by the base so i won't yank on the ear and skin too much, then I niggle a metal comb at the tip until it loosens up. When I've done this all the way to the base, I use a slicker brush to remove loose hairs
If your dog's not used to boring ear grooming, give a time consuming treat while you work.
Unless you want to groom ears every day I'd really suggest shaving and keeping the ear fluff short, the area is notorious for matting in like, seconds.
