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

Designed to cut through tangled & matted hair. The tapered guide penetrates the tangle and allows the blade to cut the hair. Brush or comb the area to be treated – this will help locate the genuine matts.

Use a “sawing” action with short strokes for effective cutting – never force the Matt Splitter through matts as this will cause discomfort to the animal and is less effective.

Use a Mikki Grooming Comb to clear the loose hairs.

Grooming guide:

Always keep Matt Splitter level with the skin to avoid digging in (fig.1)

Keep Matt Splitter upright and at right angles to the skin – avoid having it at a slant (fig.2).

Avoid using the Matt Splitter on sensitive areas where there is loose or folded skin. Never lift the skin into a “peak” (fig.3) when cutting as this can result in serious injury. If in doubt use clippers or scissors with care. If your pet is extensively matted seek professional help.

When you have finished your grooming session, dont forget to spray your pet's coat with Mikki Anti-Tangle Spray.  This will keep your pet's coat in good condition and help make any tangles easier to comb out in the future.

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