Ok Sunny is about 9 months old now and a few weeks ago his coats started doing that thing were it changes and matts really easy. Well how much longer is this gonna last? I am brushing him out everyday and everyday he is full of matts, tonight i found a big one under his chin that i ended up having to cut out (i tried for like over and hour to get it) and now he looks so goofy lol. Ijust want to know becuase if it is going to be much longer i am gonna cut all his hair short.

I would put him in a teddy/puppy cut and start over if you are already cutting mats out of him. My reasoning here is that when you cut the mats, you have hair of 2 different lengths growing which itself creates more mats. I just bathed more frequently during this period as really clean hair doesn't mat as much. It also helps if you brush to the skin and go through the coat with a comb to be sure you got it all.

The Bless the Beasts detangling products are great, but I vote for a short cut to save your sanity while he is losing his baby coat. With the warm weather coming (it's already here in North Carolina - going to be 80 the next few days!), it's a perfect time for summer 'do!
