    Nail clippers for extra thick nails?

    Short of bolt cutters (jk), is there a type or brand of nail clippers best suited for those extra thick nails on large breeds like great danes, mastiffs, etc.? One of my groomers has actually broken many handles on her nail clippers, and with some of...

  • One who always sends a note with dad. It explains in detail (with different wording each time) to do exactly the same thing we always do. It makes me smile though.
    One time had a client hate the haircut when I handed the dog off, while trying...

    Best place to buy clipper parts?

    I have been browsing sites recently to get some clipper parts (blade drives, switches, hinges, housing, brushes, etc.) for a few of my clippers I want to service and repair and just can't seem to figure out the best site to grab everything from. I obviously...

    replied to Obese Dogs
    Nope, can't turn them away for obesity alone. I have, however, turned away dogs for being un-groomable due to their size and inability to stand on the table. Example was a severely obese OES that became a risk for me and herself because she could not...

    replied to Replacement Cutters
    Ive never bought cutters, but have swapped out good cutters from broken blades a few times. It works, but from what I understand wear on the blade will be different, and like mentioned above, when sharpened instead all parts should be checked and serviced...

  • I understand the corporate mentality of clients not wanting to pay extra for a deshed service. At the store I work at I have put my foot down (a couple years ago now). If your dog is shedding or molting to the point the 15-20 minute brushout that's included...

    replied to No Wet Clipping or Else
    Yeah petsomething shops will frown on it simply because thats not a method they teach. Stupid really, but corporation liability blah blah if something goes wrong we cant explain it because it's not our method. Some managers will allow it if done in the...

    No worries, there is no scare. I am fully aware that the first surgery started arthritis and generally chronic issues. My other knee has been feeling like the first for a few years now (chronic pain, popping, cracking, giving out and even sliding out...

  • Corp says 12 weeks (not that I don't disagree with Parti and Cyn). Corp's reasoning is they are up to date on all puppy shots by that point. So we look for first 2 full rounds of puppy vacicines before accepting. Rabies required between 4-6 months depending...

    replied to Best haircut ever!
    Agreed. I unfortunately see a lot of groomers that can't control the angle of the blade well enough to do a decent strip down. Especially with a 10!...

    I have had multiple knee surgeries, but no replacement yet (too young). Last surgery was an invasive, intense ligament repair, tendon repair, and general "clean out". I was supposed to be out 6-8weeks but had a complication that had me out...

  • When I first started (as a bather and as I was first being shown how to groom) I was told not to worry about spending too much money on equipment, because it was about the skill/technique not the quality of tool. Psh. Quality of equipment has a huge...
