You may recall, I’m not a fan of being groomed – Mom says it is more like wresting an alligator, so when Andis® asked if I would review some grooming tools I was less than thrilled. I agreed to keep an open mind and give their products a try. I received a Deshedding Tool, and a Small Nail Clipper to try.
I don’t use an ordinary brush on my furs, and they are not to be shaved or trimmed, but stripped. We have bought several stripping brushes over the years. They all work, but I don’t like getting stripped and Mom feels like it takes forever to get my furs completely done.
We went out on the deck to give the Andis Deshedding Tool a try, and it was amazing. No kidding, Mom couldn’t believe it! I stood there, simply stood still, did not squirm, did not try to sit, just stood there like the perfect dog.
She worked on my coat for a good five minutes and it didn’t phase me a bit. When she stopped, I actually held out my front leg for her to work on as well. The deshedding tool looks pretty much the same as the other stripping brushes in my grooming kit, but this one is somehow different! The fur came out, but since I was recently professionally groomed, I didn’t have a lot of excess fur.
Mom also said the handle is real comfortable to hold onto as well. She has a lot of stripping to do, so that is important to her. The package also says it has a special design which won’t irritate my skin. Perhaps this is the reason it felt so good and I did not mind?
At first I think she was nervous as her nails usually get done when she is half asleep in her bed, but she was willing to get them done on the deck. Personally, I think Bailie’s nails look fine, it’s Mom’s nails that need a trim!
Bailie got both front paws done. Mom said she loved the nail clipper. It springs back real nice, is easy to use, and is nice and sharp. Bailie and I both have dark nails, so it is hard to find the quick. To keep from injuring us, Mom cuts off a small amount, and then another small amount until it seems good.
