When it comes to giant breed health and nutrition, there's a lot that goes into raising a happy, healthy dog. We're going from A to Z talking about giant breed specific needs! Today, it's all about keeping your Great Pyrenees (or other giant breed dog) mat-free!

Zilch, Zero, None: A Mat-Free Pyrenees

Today is the last day of the A to Z Challenge. Can you believe it? I’m sure you all are sick of hearing from me 6 days a week. I’d certainly be sick of me 😉

We have one last super quick post to wrap up the challenge. Mostly, we wanted to offer a giveaway for another favorite grooming product: The Stuff.

Dogs with long coats, especially long double coats, are highly susceptible to mats. Regardless of how much brushing you do, they’re bound to happen. Mauja and Atka tend to get them behind their ears every now and then. Cutting out a mat isn’t recommended – I’ve seen far too many injuries from people trying to remove mats. Thankfully, there’s a better way.

The Stuff

Yes, this stuff is really called “The Stuff”. The Stuff is a leave-in conditioner and detangler to remove and prevent tangles. Not only does it condition the coat, but it is also formulated with silicone to repel dirt and dust. The Stuff is a non-toxic, hypoallergenic formula to prevent any possible reactions.

I absolutely love The Stuff.

I use it on wet and dry fur to keep their coats soft and shiny. If they do develop a mat, I simply spray it with The Stuff and then use the Safari De-Matting Comb to finish the job.

Easy peasy!

Okay, I’m not going to ramble on about this product and how much we love it. It’s the end of a long, taxing challenge so I’m just going to jump straight to the good stuff – the giveaway!

Would you like to try The Stuff on your dog? Enter the giveaway below for a chance to win!

  1. My dog, Kandy, has long thick fur and gets matted. I use conditioner on her to help with her mats and brush her often. I have never tried a leave-in conditioner. I love that The Stuff is a non-toxic and a hypoallergenic formula.

  2. I have never seen The Stuff before but would love to try it. Our boys also tend to get small matts behind the ears and I always feel bad having to slowly comb my way through them.

  3. Great suggestions.

    I met a Pyrenees Rescue volunteer at a rescue event this weekend and told her how informational your blog was regarding Pyrenees and other large animal breeds. I sent her the link info as she was interested in checking it out and adding it as a link to their website.

  4. I don’t have a GP, but I am still a Giant Fluffy (rough-coat Saint Bernard) and Medium Fluffy (Chow-Chow / Border Collie) Mom! I could use this stuff too! (I hope that by telling you I’m from other breeds, I have not hurt my chances to win 🙂 I love Prys and your blog!

  5. We get a few mats on a couple of our doggies. When they come up, if we can’t gently comb or brush them out, they simply get cut out with scissors.
