I had to shave Pico once when he was just 6 months old and after that we didn't have much of a problem. I think his adult coat came in and that solved a lot of the matting. He has a cottony coat, too.

I started going through his coat every night with a steel comb to locate any mats that might have tangled up during the day. I used a detangler (PurePaws Spray) and since he is in a puppy coat at all times I can just brush him each night now with a natural bristle brush and it removes any loose hairs that seem to create the mats.

I don't put a harness on him unless we are going for a walk or somewhere that I will put him down on the ground and will need a leash on him.
