Pets groomed on a regular basis adjust and cooperate to the routine. Pets that are not groomed every 4 to 8 weeks may become matted. Matting occurs from lack of grooming, coat overgrowth, not routinely being brushed, or a coat not being combed through prior to getting to getting wet. Most pup owners do not see the severity of mats as they are on the under layer of their coat attached to their skin, which is not seen much from the top first layer coat. When matting is severe and/or attached to the skin the only humane way to remove the mats is to shave the coat off to the skin line. In some cases where the matting is not severe and only covers a small area, we can remove them by splitting, thinning, and then brushing them out without causing as much distress to the pup. In some cases this cannot all be done in one service to prevent discomfort, and will need you to come in again to complete the service. For any de-matting and/or shave will have an additional fee.
We will only proceed with this shave de-matt grooming service with your signed signature and your understanding of how your pup will look after their appointment. If you own a poodle, doodle, or any curly hair dog, your dog must be brushed every day down to the underneath layer, not just the top, to properly care for your dogs coat. By attending Mr. Specks you understand that, if you neglect your dogs coat and do not brush them daily as the ownership of that type of hair requires, your dog may need to be shaved (with your consent) when you bring them to get groomed.
