My Lucille (profile picture) is a powder puff and she mats like crazy. I brush her and cut out the really bad mats multiple times a day, but it seems like every time I start petting her I find whole new mats. I've gotten pretty adept at removing them (or at least she's gotten used to it and goes with the flow), but there has to be a way to prevent this. I bathe and brush her regularly, but the mats keep coming. Are there any products I can use to prevent matting?

When you brush her are you getting all the way down to her skin? I know with my puff, I would brush her religiously but she kept getting all matted up. Then I switched to a greyhound comb rather than a brush and it's made all the difference. As for products, I'll check what I use when I get home as I'm horrible remembering specifics.

Wahl do a trimmer that goes down to a grade 1 cut...

I had the same problem with my puff so I basically just kept her in a pony cut, I do love the long coat on them though but for me it was too much work

I can't tell from her picture, but Lucille's hair looks pretty straight & I lover her coloring!

 

Nautica has a few patches of wavy hair behind her ears that mat no matter what I do (sorry just cracked myself up with that stupid pun).  I use John Paul conditioning spray to brush her out once a week but they also have a detangling spray.  It works for her short hair, not sure how it would hold up with longer hair.  We're a short puffer coat household too :tongue:
