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

All Mikki de-matting products have micro-serrated edges and are made from stainless steel to ensure long lasting quality and excellent results.

Directions For Use

If your pet is excessively matted it may wise to seek professional assistance. Also, sensitive areas may be better clipped as they are more vulnerable. Clean the Matt Breaker after each use, put a little light oil on the blades & store in a safe place.

 

The Mikki Matt Breaker can take out matts in medium or long haired pets with minimal loss of coat length. Brush or comb the area to be treated – this will reduce long hair loss and make it easier to locate the matts.

 

Use short strokes to cut progressively – with very dense matts it may be necessary to rotate the wrist to produce a sawing action (fig.1). Never force the Matt Breaker through the coat, as this not only causes discomfort to your pet but is ineffective.

 

When clearing a matt try to hold the hair at the root to avoid pulling the skin.Work from the roots towards the outer ends using short strokes (fig.2). When passing the Matt Breaker through the coat in long strokes keep it parallel to the skin and avoid plucking upwards (fig.3)

 

Below are directions on how to change the blades so for left & right handed users.
