In this section, I will show you "How I handle matted corded coat of my Spanish Water Dog.
I have been doing this on my Spanish since the last dog, over 14 years. It should not be painful thing to do, the fluff is not actually attached to the skin, on the matted coat rather.
First look for the matted area, where the corded coat start to stuck together, or stuck completely already.
First, please have a look at this video - how to split and take under coat around corded coat. Not heavily matted here but this video gives you basic idea of splitting cord and take the fluff.
Taking undercoat means not actually plucking the hair from the skin, it is excess fluffy coat at the bottom of the cording, which keeps bind together and makes matt if not controlled.
First, Find the matted area, then split gently and take the fluff stuck in between the cord
You can see at the bottom of the cording, fluffy under coat start to get stick together and forming matting.
You would like to take this fluffy coat out pulling gently out.
and you can see the skin
