About Me:

I am a professional Pet Groomer. I have been grooming for 28 years. This Blog is a kind of diary of my work. I wish I had started years ago, writing some of the experiences I have had while grooming. Most days are fun, some can be sad, some can be just down right crazy. If you are a pet owner and come across this blog, I hope it helps you understand how your pet is groomed. If you are a Pet Groomer, I hope you can relate to some of the stories. Maybe even learn a grooming tip or can leave a friendly grooming tip for me. There is always something to learn, no matter how long you have been grooming.

Tuesday's Test...Clipping Pt.2

Time for part two of the test on clipping.

There will only be 10 questions tonight since the answers can be long.  :)

True or False:

~ 1) It is okay to clip a dog when it is wet.

~ 2) It is okay to shave Poodle feet on a Poodle that comes into your shop with the feet already wet.

~ 3) When Wet Clipping, it is better to clip a soapy coat.

~ 4) To safely Wet Clip, you must use a cordless clipper, or plug into a GFCI outlet.
~ 5) It is safer to clip a matted coat before the bath.

~ 6) It is okay to use scissors to splice a large mat in half when clipping a severely matted  coat.

~7) Matted coats can only be clipped with a #7, #10, or a #15 blade.

~8) It is okay to cage dry a matted coat.

~9) A matted dog must be intirely dry before you clip it.

~10) When clipping through very tightly matted hair around the legs, it is best to use the whole blade to fight through the mat.

I hope to post the answers tomorrow, but I have been getting home late every night lately. 
So, if I do not have the answers posted tomorrow night, please check back Thursday night. :)

Happy Grooming, MFF
