Ok, I am so glad I joined this group. I can obviously get good advice here. YIPPEE!!! So, I got my dog about a year ago from a Dr. I worked for that just didn't want him anymore, so I took him and love him and adore him. Groomers here just don't know what they're doing and I am never satisfied with how my dog looks. I have constantly searched the internet for pictures of how I'd like my Matty to eventually look and I can NEVER find one. I would like for him to look shiny and smooth all the time, but when I take him in they tell me it's just impossible so he always looks fo full and fluffy and just out of control. Any advice, help, suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I will soon take pics of Matty and post them so you can see what I mean. Also, I have a problem with all the staining on his face. He loves to be outside so I can never keep it clean.
