Hey everyone,
My Sassy has a nice silky coat, but it is somewhat soft and the adult hair is coming in, so she is having some matting. Sadie has a thinner coat and doesn't mat as badly. I groom both of them every single night so I keep after the mats (my groomer LOVES me!). Last week the owner of the shop, also a maltese breeder, showed me a product called Pro-Groom Canine Coat Conditioner by Lambert Kay. It is an aerosol product and costs $25 for a large can. She swears by it and said that the mats almost dissolve. Tonight Sassy had a fairly large mat in her neck (where Sadie grabs her when playing) and I sprayed on this product and WOW! The mat did kind of dissolve. I guess that I just want to make sure that this isn't some wacky product that I shouldn't be using. It contains no laqueur. You spray it on the entire coat before grooming. If there is a mat you spray that until it is moist and then comb. It also has a nice smell. Anyone have any knowledge of the product. I've only used it once so I'm certainly not recommending it yet - just trying to get info. I sure was impressed initially.

Hi yes I have heard of it .. I saw it in the Rens pet store for Groomers.
I actully bought the whiteing chulk product they make as well I'm happy with that product. handelers use it to cover up pee stains during shows. Mind you I don't use chalk one offten .So I'm sure the one you got is good too and safe.
I also found something called D-matt that does the same thing you discribe above.
I use that when I can not give chelsey a bath with Bless the Beast .

Jackie,
Thanks for the info. I'm confused about Lanolin though. Is it good for skin and not so good for hair? The product suggests that you should especially use the product on dogs who live in dry climates. Is this because of the skin, but not necessarily the hair? What won't dry out the hair?
Thanks,
Susan

I avoid products with oil, lanolin, and alcohol. Oil has to be bathed out every 3-4 days. Lanolin will dry the coat (your skin gets washed daily, your dog gets bathed once a week). Alcohol is very drying (that's why if you use top knot gel you want one without alcohol because you don't wash it out daily).

A spray like that is fine to use if you have matts. Just bathe the dog after you've dematted.

For everyday grooming spray:
Coat Handler conditioner diluted in water'
Coat Handler grooming spray
Crown Royale spray
Pure Paws spray
Ice on Ice (by Chris Christensen)
A tiny bit of Mane N Tail diluted in water
Thermasilk leave in conditioner spray

Dang it.

I went to Pet Smart today and asked for the 8 in 1 brand of dematting spray because I thought that was what you all were talking about. I came home clutching my 8 in 1 brand spray and then read this thread! I got the wrong stuff. I have the mind of a steel sieve.

I was just about to place my monthly order (yesterday) with a site that I get all my basic stuff from as well as some clothes etc. when I saw this post. I looked it up in their catolog and I found a can of 12.5 oz. spray for $9.16 a can, so I ordered it. I hope it was the right one, it was a white can and said Pro-Groom and it was by Lambert Kay so I think I got the right stuff
I love Lambert Kay creme rinse, it smells so good, so I figured this stuff would be good also since it is by the same company. I also ordered the No tangle spray from Lambert Kay. Indy has been matting more than he usually has in the past, so I am looking for all the help I can get. Thank you for the heads up on this product, I get my order today and will put it to good use tonight
