How long does GSD hair behind the ears take to grow back?
My awesome longhaired GSD got two mats behind his left ear, and one behind his right one. The ones behind the left ear wouldn't be noticed to much if I cut them, which I will eventually have to do, but the BIG one behind the right ear will take away half of his behind ear hair. The problem is that there are no pet grooming parlours nearby, and I can't brush the mats out. So I was thinking I should cut the left ear ones right off, and then cut the right ear one in little pieces, attached to his skin, which I would try to detangle. Do you think It's right? I had never noticed the mats before, and I groom him every other day, so...
Also, how long would it take for that hair to grow back? A month?
Will the hair grow to be the same as it was before?
Thank you all!
