|I'm a bather, not an actual groomer, but it drives us all nuts! I just try to explain to them that their dog will be in PAIN if we try to demat them after a certain point, and then not only will their dog hate coming to the groomer, but they will probably hate being brushed at home even more! Some people have said "Oh, she can handle it" like their dog has some exceptional pain tolerance. We charge an extra $15 for very 30 minutes of dematting. I think we need to raise our prices because that doesn't deter a lot of people.
In my opinion, you EARN the right to have a dog and that means choosing a dog you can care for. Don't get a long/curly haired dog if you're not going to take care of it! Or at least chose a cut that is easy for you to manage! That's why I have my cocker in a lamb cut instead of the breed cut, I just don't have the time to brush out that skirt every day!
