Scaredy Cut Pet Grooming Kit
Scissors + attachment combs = a silent hair clipper that gives an even trim, without the noise and vibration! Great for pets that are bothered by electric clippers. Pet stress matters and Scaredy Cut is the safest, gentlest way to groom your pet. Includes scissors and seven attachment combs for a variety of lengths. #1, #1 1/2, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6 combs are all included. Featuring gel finger inserts that can be removed for larger fingers or a looser fit and a tension adjustment system. One blade is serrated to better grip fine fur and the other blade can be easily sharpened as needed.
Directions: Begin by deciding the length to which you wish to trim your pet's hair. Scaredy Cut is compatible with most conventional hair clipper guide combs and many sizes are available. The six guide combs included, when used with Scaredy Cut, will trim to the following lengths: Comb #1 - 0.5", Comb #2 - 0.6", Comb #3 - 0.7", Comb #4 - 0.8", Comb #5 - 0.9", Comb #6 - 1" (the shorter lengths indicated on the combs apply to their use with an electric hair clipper).
Attach the selected comb to Scaredy Cut by first placing the front edge of the mounting block into the V-shaped groove of the guide comb and then snapping the latch in place at the back edge (the edge with rounded corners).
Begin by brushing your pet. Don't force your pet as this alone can create fear. Present this activity as a treat and work only as long as they are cooperative, which may mean that you trim your pet over several sessions. Do not trim a pet that is not under your control. Only one hand is required to use Scaredy Cut. You can use your free hand to handle your pet, hold locks of hair to be cut, or brush the hair. Work against the direction of hair growth, moving from the tail toward the head. Remove large locks of hair by holding them out with your free hand (do NOT pull on the fur) and making single cuts. The initial result will be an uneven, choppy surface. Once most of the hair has been removed by making single cuts this uneven surface can be evened out by making multiple, rapid cuts, as the guide comb is pulled through the hair. You can use a brush to comb up the hair for cutting.
Do not pull the fur into the comb as pulling your pet's fur can cause discomfort and their skin, which can be very flexible, can be pulled up into the blades as well.
