I'm agreeing with you linkat.
I just can't believe saab has never heard of groomers for pets.
Dogs are domesticated, some have long hair or other special needs. Some cats need regular brushing too of course.
Wolvles, coyotes, dingos, wild cats like tigers etc don't get matted because they have shorter hair, and they use trees, rocks and such to brush against, other member of their family groom them, and their needs are just different.
Wild animals don't need their nails cut as they are walking on terrain that keeps them the correct length.
