The Slicker Brush and nail Cutters

 

 

Used for long hair or short a soft tip will remove loose hair undercoat trapped dirt perfect for shedding dogs a slicker brush is also used for mats and tangles they come in various shapes and sizes.

There is also the  CLEVER SELF CLEANING Slicker brush that has a self cleaning feature. Simply push the button, wipe, and the brush will be as good as new.

We need good nail cutters the Original cutters last for years but if you prefer the the handle styled nail clipper with the safety guard to avoid over cutting for professional at home grooming for small or large dogs dog nail clippers  

 

 

 

Metal Pin Brushes 

Similar to a Slicker brush but a Pin brush has longer pins is stronger and has rounded plastic tips for comfort with a spongy rubber backing be careful of the cheaper versions if the pin brush gets wet the rubber deteriorates fast and the pins fall out used for dogs with Medium coats wire hair and in between shedding of double coats like German Shepherds Alaskan Malamutes Collies and smaller longer coats as well and used for the hind legs between the tail and hock can be known as fluffy trousers.

 

 

 

Soft bristle brushes

Can be purchased separately or in a kit with other grooming brushes which is always handy to have for long coated dogs the soft brush is used for removing top coat loose hair used more for short haired dogs stimulates skin and disperses oil regular brushing can prevent skin disorders remove dead skin cells regenerate new hair growth.

 

 

 

Grooming Gloves 

For shorter coats to remove loose hair massage stimulate skin to disperse oils throughout the coat used for shedding bathing and general daily grooming the cheaper versions have smaller bristles and are wider apart but will work the same but for the Ultimate Grooming Glove these are selling fast and we hope more are in stock later 2019.

 

 

Dematting rake there are different sizes the Grooming rake has 2 sides and suitable for all long coat breeds from silky hair to thick double coats this product comes with a long tooth Dematting comb and a 2 sided undercoat rake For medium to long haired dogs.

 

 

Clippers for Hygiene areas 

For the paws trimming the hair helps keep the paws healthy and easier to walk on slippery surfaces like the kitchen floor or on tiles regular walking and exercise can help keep the nails shorter and the hair under the paws shorter long coated dogs need the paws trimmed so here’s our recommendation for ears faces and paws this is a professional clipper and will last for years some come with attachment combs with cords or without.

 

 

Combs are not always sold with clippers and can be purchased separately the most used combs are 5 and 7 the most used blade is a 10, 7, or 7F, 5, for wahl clippers search for product videos and Grooming Tips on Facebook Dog Grooming Tips located in Texas the grooming School has live videos showing you how to groom different breeds from Cavoodles long coats Short and gives useful tips 

Metal combs

Are used for light knots the finer silky hair use teeth combs closer together the wider the teeth the thicker the hair used for combing hair while scissoring the coat fluffy up to even the coat for clipping not used for thick knots or matted hair.

    We have taken our dog to several different dog groomers, so I have a definite opinion on the subject.  Some were good, and some not so good.  Our favorite groomer had a mobile business, so his truck came to our driveway and everything was very convenient.  Do you think a mobile business is better than a physical location?

      The experience is in the results not all groomers are equal or have the same experience or skill set we all have our off days the more prepared the groomer the easier the job is it’s up to the individual of what is convenient and practical to the owners lifestyle and needs

    I use to have a German Splitz, his name is Pang, means powder in Thai. He is so white and fluffy. In the beginning we take him to the groomer but later he got sick and got really aggressive with strangers so I take the grroming to my own hands. Did notknow what I was doing lol His hair was so uneven so I had to buzz cut the poor boy. He was so embarrassed lol He would hide away most of the time when his hair was short lol Now I got better but it doesn’t hurt to have more tools. Thanks for the list.

    Excellent article. Just like human beings, dogs also need physical maintenance to look and feel their very best, and fortunately, dogs do not need to bathe as often as we do, but you do need to learn how much grooming your dog needs and you need to keep it on a schedule. This post really gives you the idea on their basic necessities.

      We would like to think that all dogs in a domestic environment are well maintained for their health and for human health as well. Thank you for your comment much appreciated.
