If its all matted underneath, you really have no choice. Their coats really do grow back fast fortunately.

As he grows, work on your brushing techniques. Make sure you brush all the way down to the skin by flipping back the hair and brushing it in layers. Even though you were brushing him several times a day, you apparently weren't getting all the way through his coat.

Get him some cute sweaters to wear while he's growing back.

Jodi has a really good point. Maybe you can find a groomer who will tackle the mats instead of shaving Chiqui.

Even if it costs more, like she says, it may not be that much more than shaving would be. A co-worker had to have her Yorkie shaved this summer and they charged her $50. With mats close to the skin, they have to do it very slowly and carefully. They also made her sign a waiver before that they would not be responsible if Sugar got cut and needed stitches - at her cost.
