In this lesson, awarding winning stylist, Karen Tucker gives you a great lesson on how to demat quickly and painlessly. Her key secrets almost make the tangles melt away. We’re not talking a severely matted pet – but those pets that come in every 5-6 weeks. These are the owners who don’t know what a brush looks like between grooming. How can you save coat, remove knots and tangles while doing it in a manner that is soothing to the pet and efficient for you? Karen will show you how easy it is!
