In the shop I work in, we have a gated area by the grooming area, so if needed we can put the dog were working on down at a moments notice. Male yorkies pee everywhere!!

No, I don't think you really get it. Fighting a dog to get those small sticky outies, is not worth the stress or potential injurying. I will do the best I can...Dogs can have seizures, explosive diarrhea etc. I will not keep a dog on my table for 6 hours. I will only push so far. Humanity before vanity.

If your budget is around $200 I would pick the andis excel 5 speed. You can pick up a new pair for around $179 on ebay. Havn't tried the laube, but I believe they are upward of around $300+ Excel's are super light weight, and have a narrow body. I am small in stature, so this was a deciding factor when I chose them.

argggg, was trimming a shih tzu's face this week. was trimming the hair right above the eyes, when she decided to sneeze. Scared the heck out of me. Sometimes you have to say good enough, and send them on their way.

As a dog groomer, I can promise you it will grow back. Had to shave many a tail off due to Matting. May take a while...

couldn't open up the photo. Teddybear cut, is just a generic term used in grooming. Basically, one length all over with round head. I have a bichon/poodle mix named Gus. Luckily, he doesn't mat at all. Being a groomer, I'm amazed smile

From the second pic you posted, it looks like a 1 guide comb on the body, and possibly an E gc on the legs, that were skimmed, and then scissor finished. The legs look really full, and as a groomer, when I do longer cuts, and there next appointment rolls around, I find matting, in the underarms, Inner legs, and the foot area. I would suggest, and easier to maintain length being a 1 gc body, with a 0 gc skimmed legs. Looks nice without being too hard to keep up. Like the facesmile

Small Dogs > What is the best comb or brush for matted fur?

As a groomer, I would like to suggest 3 things. A soft slicker, a metal comb with med/fine teeth, and some type of liquid silk protein. You can buy a product called Quicker Slicker from any Tractor Supply. I like Chris Christensen Silky Spirits, but it's basically the same thing. A little goes a looooong way. Rub about a pea size into a mat. Then try to split with your fingers. Work with a brush outside and them when you feel that it's out, run a comb through to make sure. You want to make sure you can comb down to the skin.

Toto, just wanted to say I love Crown Royal!! Smells divine. I also use it on flat coats, then brush through with a boar bristle brush. I know I was taught to demat prior to bathing, but I find it takes significantly longer working those mats out when the coat is dirty. I would rather demat while drying or prior to the actual haircut.
