With autumn drawing in and the weather becoming wetter, colder and muddier, our furry friends still love to be outdoors walking and running around. It’s great for us also, but unlike us, our furry friends can not take their coats off and dry them.

As a result matts, knots, sore and irritated skin can occur and cause a relatively large amount of discomfort to dogs and cats. I would recommend that you have your pets groomed regularly throughout the autumn and winter months. For advice on getting your dog groomed, please click here.

For our grooming colleagues, as we know, it is a busy time of year for the salons, and there are exams and competitions taking place. It is, therefore, crucial to ensure that all your grooming scissors, clippers and clipper blades are sharpened and in top condition. We recommend that you have your grooming equipment serviced at least once every two months. However, at this time of year, it is essential to your scissors maintained at least once a month to ensure they are in excellent working order. This will help make your grooming life simpler and help create those beautiful finishes. For contact details for our professional sharpening service, please click here.

It is also a great time to replenish your scissor stocks and starting thinking about Christmas present ideas… yes, Christmas present ideas. We have many offers and discounts coming soon, so please keep an eye on your emails, our Facebook pages and our website.
