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.

Tips from the Top!

Give your pet the salon style without the salon price tag…

  1. Groom your pet regularly – it’s a great way to check over your pet to see that they are in tip top condition.  Check their eyes and ears; and run your hands over their body feeling for any cuts, lumps or bumps which shouldn’t be there.  If you know what is “normal” you will easily spot something when it’s wrong.  Mikki Ear Eye Wipes are a great way of cleansing your pet’s delicate facial features
  2. Make sure your pet is calm before you begin grooming – handling your pet regularly will help make them more accepting to being groomed.  Keep your grooming sessions little and often at the beginning until you both get more used to them.
  3. Moulting pets can mean a hairy house!  Use the Mikki Moult Master to remove mass amounts of dead hair and make both your house and your pet more comfortable!
  4. When removing fleas, stand your pet on white paper so you can see the fleas and eggs that you are grooming out.  Mikki Flea Combs come in different sizes to suit you and your pet.
  5. If your pet has knots or tangles, gently comb through the surrounding hair so the knot is isolated.  Then use a Mikki De-matting product to gently cut through the matt – this is much less stressful than tugging at your pet’s coat which can hurt and worry them about future grooming sessions.  Note – don’t wet the knot as this will make it tighter.
  6. Cutting your pet’s nails can be a daunting task.  Trim a little bit off at a time, taking care not to cut into the quick (the darker section of the nail) as this will bleed.  The Mikki Deluxe Nail Clipperhas a quick guide to help prevent you cutting off too much.
  7. If your pet is new – be it a puppy or kitten or an older rescue pet, introduce grooming gradually using a glove product.  This way your pet gets used to grooming as it replicates your usual stroking action which helps to calm anxious pets.
  8. If your pet has sensitive skin, choose a product with gentle tips so that you don’t accidentally scratch your pet.  Also use shampoos, sprays and wipes that are designed for pets with sensitive skin.  The Mikki Ball Pin Slicker and Sensitive Skin Shampoo are ideal for more delicate pets.
  9. If you are unsure which grooming product is best for your pet, think about what problems you need to solve.  Does your pet moult a lot or have a very thick coat?  Is your pet prone to knots and tangles? Or perhaps your pet is just a bit generally untidy?  Mikki products are categorised by problem, making it really easy for you to identify whether you just need a brush or something more specific like an undercoat rake.
  10. When grooming your pet, use gentle strokes applying the same pressure that you would when brushing your own hair.  This will help make grooming an enjoyable and relaxing time for both of you.
