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.

Directions For Use

Your pet's claw has blood vessels known as the 'quick'. It is important that you do not cut into this area. It is easy to locate the quick on animals with light coloured claws. For those with dark coloured claws it may be easier to locate the quick by looking on the underside of the nail - however if in doubt seek the advice of your vet or pet groomer.

Hold your pet's foot carefully and ensure that you are in complete control before starting to trim the nail. Begin cutting in one smooth action. If you are unsure, only cut off a small amount at a time.

Keeping your pet's nails trimmed is essential for good care and grooming.  If you pet is particularly nervous or dislikes having their claws clipped, try using a Mikki Nail File.

Tip: For beginners, Mikki recommends the "Deluxe Nail Clipper" with its easy to use safety guard.

Important: keep out of reach of children. Use extra care when using any grooming aid with sharp edges.
