We've been trying to groom ourselves and its been so tough!!!! But reading these gives me hope. I just ordered a de-matting brush. My husband is insistent we do it ourselves, but argggggggggg! I can't believe all the hair and fur our dog has- especially now that he is a year. I learn so much from these boards. Thank you all.

Right about a year is when they are blowing their puppy coat and they are just a load of mats. It gets better... so hang in there!

I'll have to get a Coat King for my guys. When I got their Andis clipper off of craigslist, along with all the assorted blades and grooming tools (gave away most of them), there was a Furminator. With exception of trimming their under-ears, faces and pads, I've been letting Rhett and Jude's coats grow out for the last 5 months. The Furminator has gotten plenty of undercoat out the whole time. They take it in stride - don't dislike it, but don't beg for it either. It also gets a shocking amount of undercoat out of the Frenchie's super-short, hard coat (unless she's asleep, she gets "combed out" just like them). Even if the Mars tool works equally well, if they enjoy it, that's difference enough for me.
