Sedation is an option, is personally rather just shave him bald myself and start over though. If he's badly matted, as has already been stated - he could be in pain.

Shaving in a calm environment by someone who he trusts without having to be put under GA would be the best option in my opinion. Unless he shows fear or stress towards you - in which case id go with veterinary grooming under sedation

If he's matted behind the ears or legs those are really sensitive areas and are probably causing some amount of pain, and a dog in pain may lash out no matter how much they trust the person, especially if they're already nervous, so be careful!

I'd just buy a dog clipper. You can find them at a lot of pet stores that offer grooming like petco or pet smart :)
