Proper Restraints, General Safety Practices, and Danger Areas

Restraining your pet is almost always necessary to keep them safely on the table, we give you tips on how to do this safely and as low stress as possible. Safety is also extremely important when working on your pet with sharp objects. 

Prep Work

Nails are important but can be very scary and intimating, we will show you how to clip or Dremel them (your choice) to the proper length without hitting the quick, along with a sanitary trim, arm pits, paw pads, and ears.

Bathing and Drying Techniques

Getting a nice even haircut comes from a great bath and blow dry. Picking the correct products and using drying techniques can make or break your finished haircut.

The Haircut
