I have been sick and got behind on brushing Bill. He isn't badly matted but has quite a few. He needs a trip to the groomer but can't go yet has been having tummy troubles.
Seems some of the worst mats are on his front and back legs and feet. Areas that by the time I am done, we haven't got them out 100% and we are both exhausted. He is cooperative with the rest of the brushing.
I have ice on ice detangler but it seems to do little good.
I have several questions.
1. What do I do to brush out the mats, what is the best way.
2. Is a mat rake good for coton fur
3. How can I work with him to be more cooperative about his legs being brushed. Also his hiney is a touchy subject with him. I find myself dreading brushing because of the battle ahead.
I would appreciate any insights or tips. Thank you.
Oh Bill will be 2 yr. next month. He weighs about 15 1/2 pounds.
