    I do a lot of double coated dogs, huskies and malamutes etc and I’m excited to see what results I get using the techniques that I have learned. It’s a shame the husky couldn’t be bathed as I was very keen to see the results but all good.

    I learned so much from this and also confirmed a lot that I already knew. It definitely could’ve been even more informative to have had a double coated dog that was impacted and the best way to go about was awesome other than that though!

      Thanks so much for the feedback! It is VERY hard to plan a webinar with a matted/impacted coat as we have to plan so far in advance and can’t leave a dog matted for that long. We would like to do a dematting webinar at some point but will have to be a pop-up with not much notice.

    I learned soooo much valuable information that I can, and will, definitely apply on my next double coated dog. The instructors were engaging and incredibly easy to follow. I highly recommend this course if you want to do your desheds properly and take them to the next, if not several levels, higher.
