What is a mat?

  • A mat is a densely tangles clump of hair.

Dematting fees and requirements:

 HUMANITY OVER VANITY!  

NO EXCEPTIONS

  • $1 per minute at the groomers decretion (if more than 30 minutes the dog will be shaved)
  • Most pets can NOT handle the demat process
  • For the process to be painless the pet needs to be FULLY COOPERATIVE.
  • If it causes pain to the pet WE WILL NOT DO IT. In this case the matting will be shaved out of the coat.  Mats will NEVER be left in the coat this poses a very serious health concern.
  • Some pets will tolerate dematting in some areas but not others.  Just because your pet behaved for the process before does not guarantee they will again. 

Doggie Styles highly recommends keeping your pet on Flea preventative year round.  If your dog has fleas, treat your pet with an oral or topical flea preventative (available from your vet) before scheduling an appointment.   Doggie Styles recommends oral monthly treatments.  If you choose to use a topical flea treatment, our recommendation is to apply 48 hour before or after a bath.  This will ensure the treatment can successfully transfer to the entire dog by use of natural oils in the skin and coat. 


Doggie Styles reserves the right to refuse service including but not limited to flea issues.  If your dog is found to have fleas once at the salon they will be washed in an essential oil shampoo to kill the fleas and a
$15 cleaning feeWILL BE ADDED TO YOUR BILL.  This shampoo will kill any fleas that are on your dog but it does NOT prevent reinfestation.  We do NOT use any chemicals or dips on our clients.

The degree of matting:  

  • mild:  debris in coat (easily removed with routine brushing)
  • moderate:  matting forms lumps in the coat (starts pulling on skin need dematted or removed)
  • severe:  matting forms a "cast or carpet" covering sections of skin (painful to the dog, can cause severe skin infections and hot spots)
