Set up your workstation before starting to comb through the meeting and you will need to collect your tools.
This includes brushes, Clippers, blades, towels, shampoo, nail clippers, etc.
It's a good idea to have a permanent place to put them together like a plastic storage box.
It is very good to solve this problem.
Decide whether you are on the floor or the groom at the table.
I recommend using a table for a few reasons.
This will be more comfortable for you, as most pets are not allowed on the table and have a slight fear of height, so you will immediately get the attention of the pet.
What's interesting about this fear of heights is that the bigger the dog, the bigger the fear.
Now, we're just using a natural instinct here, not trying to make our pets miserable.
Pets should learn to relax after spending a few times on the table, but you will keep an eye on him all the time.
Make sure the table you are using is very sturdy and anti-slip on top.
You can use a shelf paper coated with rubber, and a lot of people put them under the plates of the kitchen cabinets.
Also, for additional control, you should place the table against the wall.
This gives you the option to put an eye bolt on the wall behind the table, and you can install a comb ring on it.
Combing the ring is a very important tool that can act as your third hand when combing.
It also lets the pet know that you are serious and it won't jump down and run away until you say the word.
This leads to security rule 1.
When using a comb ring or pet at any time on the table, never walk more than your pet's arm distance.
Bring your pet is the safest option if you have to leave.
You don't want them to follow you.
Pets are always in danger of sliding off the table and hanging themselves, or getting hurt by jumping off the table and hitting the floor too hard.
Grab your phone before you start, get it close to you, or decide in advance that you won't answer the phone until you're done.
The last thing you want is to be distracted by a phone call and walk away to find the phone.
Depending on the type of dog you keep, the whole grooming process can take an hour to an hour and a half or more, so the table you use should be a comfortable height, allows you to work on a pet without leaning over.
You can use a stool, but in a sitting position you actually have less control and range of motion than you think.
Try to sit and stand and you will soon find it more comfortable for you.
If you choose to groom on the floor, lay a blanket under the area where you intend to work to make it easy to clean up.
Choose a corner of the room so you can use the walls and body to keep the pet from leaving the area until you are done.
Also, when choosing an area of your home for the groom, keep in mind that most pets are easily distracted and you should choose a quiet space where family members do not interrupt your walking traffic.
Also, if you are going to use a clipper, there should be a power outlet nearby to plug in.
The bathtub and sink is a great place to wash pets, but the utility sink (
Usually in the garage)
If your pet is small enough to fit in, it's also a great place to take a shower.
Place a bath mat or towel at the bottom of the tub/sink to provide safe foot traction for your pet.
If they are afraid that water or long nails cause them to slip on a smooth surface, it also relieves their anxiety.
Go and buy a cheap manual shower accessory that will slide through the end of the faucet and make it easy to take a shower.
I bought them for only a few dollars and it was not difficult to find them.
OK, now that your setup at home is ready, let's discuss what tools should be in your toolbox and how and when to use them.
Which brush is suitable for my pet?
When it comes to brushes, the description and use of general purpose or Slicker brushes have a brush that performs well at work and should be owned by each pet owner;
A versatile, or slicker brush.
It is usually a plastic-treated brush with a very thin metal wire pad that can really go through the coat and go deep into the skin and is the best option to help you remove the mat.
Because the brush is made of metal wire, it is important to learn to use this tool correctly, otherwise it will cause the dog's skin to "brush burn ".
This "brush burn" feeling is roughly the same as the road rash you slide into the base or fall off the bike and slide over the asphalt.
Not so pleasant, completely preventable.
First of all, use a short straight pen to draw and don't bend your wrist when you're through your hair.
The more you allow your wrist to bend during the stroke, the more likely you are to eventually burn your dog with a brush.
Secondly, do not use more than necessary force.
Start gently and then slowly increase the pressure until you get through the coat effectively.
When brushing your hair, remember the necessary stress and use this as a guide.
It is important to know that when you brush your teeth, you will reach the skin all the way through your coat;
Otherwise, if there is still a problem with the hair under the top, all your efforts are wasted.
If the hair below leaves spots, you won't be able to cut it off with your hair curlers, which can cause skin conditions like hot spots.
Finally, to make sure you have completely brushed the coat, I have specified the following tips.
Start at the lower part of the dog's body, such as the thigh area, lift your hair with your hand and brush the lower part of your lift.
When you brush it out, use a brush to pull a little from under your hand and brush it out your way.
For a new user, it is crucial to learn to brush like this at the beginning.
This method will teach you to brush all the way to the skin and when you find the mat it will help you to identify what the mat looks like.
When you brush your teeth, I want you to really listen to the sound the brush makes as it goes through the hair.
Think about what your own hair sounds like.
If there is no mat, the brush should go through without resistance and the sound will be a consistent ss sound.
If the brush finds the mat, you should feel some resistance, and when each individual tine passes through the mat, you will hear the harsh, inconsistent change that comes out of that beautiful wish ss
Don't be afraid to use this brush to be a bit aggressive on the mat, remember not to put too much pressure on the skin when doing so.
If the hair is long enough, lift the hair from the skin and continue to brush the mat.
If you can't use it because it's too close to the skin, or because it's a big hard pad, leave it behind now and come back to it with a dematting tool, we will discuss this tool in this center.
Another widely used brush for pig stle brush (
Even in the grocery store)
Most people already use brush at home and they should use brush.
The bristle brush is perfect for very short coating varieties like dachshund, Chihuahua, rat terrier, mini Dubin.
If your dog's hair is longer/or thicker than those varieties, try sl brush.
You can effectively use brush brushes on longer coating varieties for sensitive areas such as the face or around the anus.
It may be wise if you are new to slicker brushes and want to be cautious.
I have never seen the brush burn caused by this brush.
Most of the bristles have pins on the other side to comb the long thick coats, and to be honest I don't think they do a good job.
I 've tried using pin brushes, and frankly I don't like them, and some of the other tools we're going to discuss are doing better.
Coat and hair removalmattersDe-
The matting tool makes the mat quickly with a very sharp blade.
Some are straight blade models with round tip, some have curved blades, the blade concave side is sharp, which makes it a safer tool for your handling.
Surprisingly, these tools are more dangerous for users than animals.
They use it by pulling the sharp side to you.
Most people try to protect themselves by using the thumb stabilization tool and then cut the tool with the power of the tool.
Some manufacturers have made up for this with special thumb brackets built into the tool or more ergonomic designs.
Either way, whatever style you use, be careful and walk slowly until you get the hang of it and use this tool for a lot of wrist movements.
Believe it or not, this tool is best suited for quick, exaggerated wrist movements.
First hold the tool with the teeth behind the mat ,(
Between the mat and the skin)
Your back should be facing you.
Then, start pulling on the mat with a tool with a handle on the side, like you, bend and roll your wrist until your hand is facing you on the front.
Think about the action of using the pasta spoon to remove the sticky pasta from the pan.
If your tool handle is straight in front of the blade, start as before, using a rocking motion.
You can also pull the tool out, start back and forth with a small stone and pull it out again.
If you understand that these tools destroy the mat, not the mat, then you can study your technology and take the mat out without much trouble.
The last point about this.
Mats anywhere on the dog are hard to remove and removing them always means that the dog will have some pull and discomfort.
He might scream to make you stop.
If you haven't started, he's bluffing. DON'T STOP.
If you do, he wins, you are too timid to try again.
Having confidence in yourself, you can do this as fairly and gently as possible, and in the process, assure him in a calm voice that you are doing your best and are not going to hurt him.
Then, when your heart is crushed by all the pain of his screaming, assure yourself that you will brush his teeth more and more frequently in the future so that he will not get stuck again.
If you find this something you can't get your dog to wear in, or the mat is too big, then you might want to stop and scrape it off with a clip.
This can sometimes be the most humane thing to do for your dog, not to mention alleviating your heavy brushing work, or maybe guilt!
The main type of greyhound comb everyone should have a greyhound comb.
It is a long metal comb with teeth about 1 to 1/2 long, all in a row, usually very close at one end and farther apart at the other.
This is the perfect tool to comb long and soft coats of York, Malta, poodles and all varieties of cats that will help you find any mats you may miss.
When you need to check if your job has the rest of the mat, try using it on any breed of dog.
If you have a dog in a long coat, you can also use it to help you set up a section in the middle of the back and to help collect the hair on the top of your head in order to put in the bow.
Isn't the comb your own?
Another trick you might want to try to make the parts is to brush all the hair back to the tail first, stand behind the dog, breathe in the strong airflow and separate the hair.
Try it sometimes and it really works.
This can surprise you with the toothbrush and flea combo, but a simple toothbrush is a great tool.
Perfect for helping to remove eye droppings while taking a shower, as well as those unpleasant little droppings that are still attached to the hair around the anus.
This reminds me of the flea comb.
The jumper comb and toothbrush have the same use and are better at removing stubborn hangers.
When using it to remove eye droppings, you have to soak the eyes with water first, and you can even soak the eyes with a little baby shampoo so that the droppings can slide out easily, without tearing or pulling, avoid damaging the skin around sensitive eyes.
There are two kinds of flea combs, one is plastic and the other is metal.
The neat thing about the metal is that the teeth (teeth)
Don't be flexible in warm water, and the pointed tip is round, so the risk of scratching the delicate skin around your eyes is less.
Ironically, the opposite of plastic.
The sharp teeth are not round, but sharp.
Although they become flexible in warm water, they are still sharp and cause scratching.
Obviously, the choice of the eye mask is not the original intention of the flea comb;
This is just a useful tip for groomers.
In any case, fleas can also be removed with it, but be quick to kill the fleas you catch on it or they will jump out and run away! Rakes and De-
The fallen toolcoat RakesAn underwear rake has teeth similar to a greyhound comb and a handle like a slicker brush.
Its teeth are made to pull out the bottom layer from those Arctic varieties of double and triple coating and have the type of coating fall off as thick as Zhou's, Corey's, some golden retriever and lab.
It is not used to pull or tear off the mat.
Any hair it grabs should be able to come out with the least amount of pull, otherwise you may torture your pet.
It is not too dangerous to burn the skin with this tool brush, but if you press the skin hard, it may be possible.
The technology on this is the opposite of the slicker brush;
You do want to use some wrist movements as your hair grows.
If no hair comes out when using this tool that usually has wide teeth, switch to your sl to make sure all loose hair is removed.
The falling sword blade is a tool that has been adapted by beauticians from horse beauty and is a laboratory, pit bull, Hound and other short coated dogs that will fall off a lot of coats regardless of whether it is thick or not.
While it looks like a terrible tool, it's actually quite safe.
Single blade (or more)
Very short blunt tooth bending, both ends are glued to a handle, very easy to use.
Just slide it down the vast part of the dog's body and watch the hair appear like magic.
Be very careful when using it in the legs or sensitive areas (such as sanitary areas or heads) as it may scratch the skin.
Otherwise, this is a great, safe tool.
It is also a good tool.
One of the only tools we discussed to sell directly to the dog owner, I highly recommend it.
It's a great design tool that fits my expectations perfectly.
If this tool is used frequently, any dog falling off problem will become the past.
It is also easy to use in more sensitive areas of the dog, such as legs, head and stomach, but it is not easy for sanitary areas.
The rubber curry comb is an awesome tool to use when taking a shower.
It can help with foam shampoo, massage the skin and muscles, and make sure the shampoo works the best in the coat.
Usually, the fallen hair will be trapped in the coat layer instead of falling off during the fall off.
Especially in thick
Coated varieties, using a rubber Curry in the shower will help to break down those hard-to-penetrate hair blocks and eventually help you remove a lot of excessive underlayers, saving a lot of time for later painting. This is a must-
I have tools in my store.
This is the end of the lesson.
I hope you will come back for a read next class and I will discuss the clippers and scissors here. Happy Grooming!
