4 Steps to Successful Grooming

View our grooming guide which illustrates which blade is ideal for different body areas. Before you buy, check our Clipper and Blade FAQs

For non-professional groomers we recommend the following 4 steps to successful grooming:



Step 1 - Wash first!

Remove tangles and knots before washing. Shampoo and condition to remove all dirt, sand, dust etc BEFORE you clip to keep blades sharper longer. 



Step 2 - Dry

Towel dry by patting not rubbing - then use a pet dryer - never on hot. Coat must be completely dry before clipping. Do not clip a wet coat.




Step 3 - Brush

Brush to remove tangles & knots before you clip. A comb should be able to go through the coat without snagging.



Step 4 - Clip

Having followed the previous steps, you're ready to clip. Always oil the blade before ou clip for a smoother finish & cooler blade.


After use - remove and clean the blade. Remove any hair. Clean. Oil again before storage to avoid rust.

Failure to wash, dry & comb the coat prior to clipping will cause blades to become dull or blunt much faster and will impact the performance of your tools.
