Fur mats under neck

by michelle

We have had our Pyr rescue for a year. Today, after a bath, I found lots of mats under his neck. I think because of his collar. I am trying to get them out but I am sure that other pyr parents have some secret shampoo or conditioner that would help. He can't go without a collar although he wears a harness most of the time to "catch" him when he's being obstinate. Please help. He does get regular brushing but the hair is so fine and flyaway. Clairol could make a fortune on this dog. Thanks very much.

Spa treatment

I know this is going to sound spa like but after bathing we use a detangling conditioner on ours. You can get it at most pet shops.

Fur detangled
by: Darlene Hickman

Buy some Cowboy Magic detangled it will help you remove the mats gently. We use it on our Misti and she has ZERO mats.
Cowboy Magic also has a conditioner and shampoo, if you bath your Pyrenees. We use it and we send it to the groomer, with Misti.
