This lady is freaking me out, strange grooming. I like how she scratches her head while grooming the dog ~ lol

That's a tangle. A dog's hair mats. The anatomy of a mat and a tangle are completely different. A dog's mat has burrs that grab onto surrounding hairs. You can't use a conditioner on a dog and get their mats out. Trust me. I've been grooming for 22 years in a rural community. I've seen mats!

Then find another groomer. I've been a groomer for 22 years who takes on difficult to groom dogs and I've never refused to groom any pet. Sure, there are ones that I dread seeing but I owe it to the dog to help maintain it's coat. My guess it that your new pet isn't used to being groomed and therefore is very scared of the sounds and feelings of the equipment. Find that good goomer who will teach your dogs how to get groomed and then never let it get back into that condition. Good luck!

Mats behind ears, arms pits, bums, bellies, tails, even under the chin can be shaved and hidden, yes you want to eliminate mats in a comfortable fashion but you also want the groom to look good... there are some cases where the dog is matted right down to the skin and shaving is really the only thing you can do, unless you want to spend several days in half and hour increments grooming the dog (good for you and the dog) that owner will be paying a ton.. please owners learn to brush properly! 
I found an abandoned shi tzu and shaved alot of fur off but she wont let me shave like her belly and front legs I dont cut any fur unlease I can see the skin but she just wont let me & the groomers denied to cut it for me smh i tryed siscors but its a full two coats of fur
