I have a 3 year old cockapoo that I purchased when he was a puppy. We got his shots right away. I had him for about 3 months when I was forced to move. My grandparents have been looking after him this whole time. Now that I'm back I saw him and his hair is terribly matted. His tail looks like one giant dread lock. We bought clippers and they won't even work in the slightest bit. I'm saving money so I can take him to the groomers but is there anything I can do?
