General Health Check

The first step is to check your dog from top to bottom checking their ears, eyes, nose, coat and nails. This is the part where you should make sure there are no irregular lumps or bumps on their bodies and remove all ticks and fleas.

Grooming Out

Grooming out is necessary to remove knots and tangles. However if the dog is smooth coated, gentle grooming products such as the grooming gloves come in handy, allowing you to gently stroke your dog down whilst spending some quality time pampering them. For long or double coated breeds, any undercoat and moulting issues should be dealt with. You also need to eliminate any big knots or tangles at this stage.

Bathing

Bath time! Lather up and shampoo your dog using a product designed specifically for their coat or skin type. This is where Mikki shines, boasting an extensive range. When bath time is over make sure you dry your dogs coat thoroughly by blow drying on a low heat or leaving to stand dry.

Cut & Finish

Use the Mikki Scissors, perfect for trimming down and tidying up to follow the style or 'design' for your specific breed of dog, alternatively use a Mikki Stripping Knife for coarse, wiry coats. Help them to smell good as well as look great with Mikki deodorising and grooming spray or wipes, both will do wonders for their appearance.

Nails

Dogs aren't usually the biggest fans of having their nails cut, hence the reason this exercise is often left until last! To avoid the risk of stressing or aggravating them use Mikki's Nail Clippers which have guards, ensuring you don't cut too close to the quick and with the Nail File as the final step, these can usher this process along as smoothly as possible whilst being quick and easy to use.

More Info

The Mikki Ball Pin Slicker Brush has plastic tipped pins to help protect your pet's sensitive skin.   The specially shaped slicker pins are mounted on an air cushion to enhance grooming action & reduce any excessive brushing force. The flexible head gives a more gentle brushing experience for you and your pet.

The pins are designed to be used with a soft stroking action, enabling the shaped stainless steel pins to ease tangles & matts and remove loose/dead hair from the undercoat, leaving the main coat clean & healthy. Regular grooming will help give your pet a shiny, healthy looking coat.

Directions For Use

The Ball Pin Brush has a curved back for a natural grooming action, enabling the medium length stainless steel pins to work effectively.

Use gentle stroking actions to allow the slicker pins to ease through matts and tangles and remove any dead hair from both the top coat and the undercoat - leaving the coat clean and healthy. Be gentle and careful at first until you are familiar with the action. Remove dead hair from the slicker every few strokes so you get the best grooming results.

N.B. Slickers are not suitable for “corded” coats (Puli, Komodor etc). Use the slicker as a weekly maintenance item after removing mass moulted hair with the Moult Master (ideal for all coat types except wool).
