There's nothing wrong with trying yourself, depending on how bad the situation is. If it's really bad then I'd suggest going with other folks' idea of having him sedated and groomed by your vet. Probably have him clipped down very short to give you as much time as you can to work on his people problems. Hopefully you could work with him to get him to accept grooming when he needs it again.

If it's not TOO bad then you could probably get away with taking some clippers and doing it yourself, assuming he trusts you enough. But if it's too bad then the matts are probably very tight, and there may be skin problems underneath that would need addressing by a vet or competent groomer.
