It lasted us a few months - and it was bad, like all of the sudden matts just appeared. What worked best for us was investing in a good comb (cc #005), comb thoroughly 2x a day (and extra if its wet outside) and keeping her fur to an inch in length (kept the tail, head, face longer). I also picked up a gentle slicker brush made for sensitive skin (for $10 at the pet store) and it helped a lot, in addition to combing. I don't think it's fair to put a dog through hours of daily grooming, and dematting ... Once you get thru this phase then you can keep the fur at whatever length you like.
