Combs & Rakes  

Scissors    

Matt Removal and Finishing Tools   

Ear Care  

Nail Care 

Storage & Clean Up  

Additional Notes by Timshell Farm

A small sampling of Grooming supplies. Brushes come in many styles. Pin brushes and Slicker brushes are just two types. When shopping for brushes, find ones that fit your hand comfortably. Styles of combs and rakes vary widely. The latest innovation is called a “rotating tooth” comb or rake. When shopping for combs and rakes, find ones that fit your hand comfortably. Scissors have many uses. Blunt Tip Curved Blade is useful for working near sensitive areas (around the face, for example). Straight shears are best for the all over body trim. Thinning shears blend in rough cuts, and are useful for cutting matts (parallel to the skin). Many matt removal tools are also available.  They basically all have sharp blades that cut through the matted hair. Small Clippers are handy for shaving the hair from the bottom of the feet, and other small or delicate locations. Cleaning solution and cotton balls are essential ear care tools. Hemostats are sometimes used to pull excess hair from inside the ear (when fingers just aren't successful). Nail care can be done in a variety of ways: Nail clippers cut off the excess. Electric grinders can be used to quickly sand off the excess. Acrylic nail files are tough enough to file dog's nails manually.  They can be used to smooth or completely remove excess. Grooming is messy business, and you have to put all those tools somewhere. It's not necessary to purchase new blades when they start to get dull.  Consider having your razor blades SHARPENED by a professional. Timshell Farm recommends: Blade Doctor P.O.
