Left Handed Dog Grooming Scissors
Historically, left handed dog groomers have found it difficult to source quality left handed scissors as they either simply do not exist and/or are very expensive. This is simply because it is more costly for manufactures to make small batches. It is true that left handed dog groomers make up 10% of the dog grooming family. However, here at Abbfabb Grooming Scissors, we are extremely passionate about making sure we offer a wide range of quality left handed scissors to left handed groomers all over the world.
Challenges Faced by Left Handed Dog Groomers
Many left handed dog groomers learn to scissor using a right handed pair of scissors, upside down. This means that in order to make the scissors cut, they have to apply a lot of pressure. Over time, the scissoring hand has developed muscle memory and this can affect the way a left handed groomer uses a left handed scissor. As a result, more pressure is applied to the scissor, causing the hair to fold rather than cut.
If this applies to you, please contact us for advice on scissors exercises which may help you change to using left handed scissors or help you use the right handed scissors in a way that you will use them more effectively.
