To answer your question, I don't think it's a bad idea for you to try it yourself. I brought Teddy to a groomer once, only wanted a trim around his face, ended up bringing home a shaved down dog. I was extremely pissed, since then I've been doing the grooming on my own. My boy's coat is very curly, so he knots easily. I brush him every other day and even then he somehow creates matts overnight. Yesterday it took me about an hour and a half to cut out all of the knots, luckily since his coat is so long it doesn't even look like he's missing hair in certain places lol.

After a groom whether you sedate him to get it professionally done or do it yourself, if you think he will get matted easily, I'd suggest Cowboy Magic or Mane and Tail detangler. I've heard very good things about them!
