Welcome to that club! I have exactly the same thing with Dylan. His also started around that age, once the adult coat was in. There is no way of keeping them knot free - you either keep the coat clipped short or keep brushing and de-tangling every day. A de-matt comb is good to cut through the matts, but Dylan also makes it very difficult for me. I have just had to get him really scalped because I had grown his coat for quite a while and the matts had got particularly bad. :(

Bobs doesn't exactly enjoy getting groomed either.

My New Years resolution is going to be do do a little bit of grooming every day and see if that helps him get used to it.

Agree, keeping their coat on the short side helps though.

Sadly no short cuts on this one I'm afraid.. I brush Betty for 20 mins every day. I took my eye of the ball for two days over Xmas and am now paying the price (or at least Betty is..)- although some dogs coats do matt worse than others ..her coat is very soft like cotton wool:):(

Yes, I agree ... groom every day (or every other day if lucky) or keep coat short. I've been busy with other things over Xmas and have neglected their coats a bit ... Bess could now do with a bath, comb through, and will need first trimming soon. Maisie has a a more difficult coat and now needs major grooming work.:eek:

MOnty is now 10 and half months old and he has started getting knots. I would love to keep his coat long and shaggy but it's not going to happen. He is due a cut on Friday and I will ask for him to be kept longer than in the summer but think it's going to be a battle now his adult coat is coming through.

Good luck!
