I agree with whatever gone has said already. If the matts are tight and seems like they are pulling, you definitely need to do something about it because they could be causing pain and/or can cause skin problems. If they are somewhat small, I would cut them out. I have a border collie whose fur around her back legs gets matted easily. There have been many times that I have had to cut out small matts.

Make sure you get the right equipment and maybe even look up some tutorials just so you have an idea. If you do decide to groom him yourself, find someone to help hold him still and give him lots of treats and praise! That way maybe he will start associating being groomed with treats and will be more willing to be groomed without struggling.
