This implies that the hair becomes more tangled and difficult to manage when it is left to dry naturally without any intervention. Just like a wool sweater that shrinks and becomes more tangled when washed in warm water or dried in the dryer, the wet coat's hair also becomes more tangled when it is allowed to dry without brushing or blow-drying.

    Other factors that cause matting are dirt, static, moisture, friction, and ___________.

    • A.

      The weather

    • B.

      The dog's age

    • C.

      Compression

    Correct Answer
    C. Compression
    Explanation
    Compression is the process of applying pressure or squeezing something together. In the context of matting, compression refers to the act of compacting or flattening the fibers of a material, such as a carpet or a dog's fur. When fibers are compressed, they become tangled and matted, causing the material to lose its original texture and appearance. Therefore, compression is a factor that can contribute to matting, along with dirt, static, moisture, and friction.

    Some coat types get matted and tangled easier than others because their hair shafts have more _____________.

    • A.

      Color

    • B.

      Spurs

    • C.

      Hairs

    Correct Answer
    B. Spurs
    Explanation
    Some coat types get matted and tangled easier than others because their hair shafts have more spurs. Spurs are small projections or barbs on the hair shaft that can interlock with each other, causing the hair to become tangled and matted. Coat types with more spurs are more prone to tangling and require extra care and grooming to prevent matting.

    Washing and drying the dog before _____________ is one of the most effective means of mat removal.

    • A.

      Shaving

    • B.

      Brushing out

    • C.

      Scissoring

    Correct Answer
    B. Brushing out
    Explanation
    Washing and drying the dog before brushing out is one of the most effective means of mat removal. This is because when the dog's fur is wet, it becomes easier to detangle and loosen any mats or knots. Additionally, drying the fur thoroughly before brushing helps prevent further tangling. By brushing out the dog's fur after washing and drying, the mats can be gently and effectively removed, leaving the dog's coat clean and free from tangles.
