Hello! I just got my cockapoo 2 days ago, she's 12 months old and we got her as a 2nd dog to be a friend for our cocker spaniel alfie - she is in quite a state, very unfit due to no walkies for a long time and her coat is out of control! she is so incredibly matted and knotty that I don't even know where to start! We have tried combing out the knots and spent a little under 2 hours last night untangling her and we still haven't finished! Can't see her eyes or anything and something has to be done! We're planning on finishing the de-tangling later today and then giving her a bath and a blow dry and trimming around her eyes and her beard if she will let us! I'll attach a photo so you can see how long she is at the moment - her hair feels very unhealthy and I feel horrible for her and wanna make it better asap! Since its winter and freezing cold we still want to keep her quite long - we have wahl clippers and were going to use them allover - but what can I do around her face? Can I take her beard off? Not 100% of it, but most of it? I don't like them and she gets a lot of food stuck in it as it is cos she's so tangled up!
