A dog groomer has shaved a pooch’s matted fur off in one piece to give the pet a fresh start in the new year. 

Catalina Herrera, a dog groomer in Burbank, California, said the dog’s matting was some of the worst she had ever seen.

‘Matted dog gets a fresh start. Some of the worst matting I’ve ever seen,’ she wrote over footage of the hour-long grooming. She told the dog: ‘Would you like to feel better?’

The video showed the animal standing on a table as Ms Herrera delicately shaved the hair and rolled its mass of fur gradually down the dog’s body. 

She put words over the video during the course of the clip, writing: ‘All the matts were connected so I had to start from the top of her body.’

As she rolled the matted fur down the dog’s neck she said: ‘This is ridiculous. You poor thing.’

‘Now we’ll work our way down,’ she wrote. ‘She was very patient and sweet. And I was happy to help. I literally had to roll it off her body. It took me an hour to get it all off her.’
