Molly,

I think I picked them up at PetSmart but you can use regular thining shears the same that can be used on humans so anywhere you can find them.

very interesting

where would I get the shears? Walmart too?

I don't touch his face or tail with the clippers, just his body and legs. As you can see by my pic's I keep him about 2-3 inches. I use thining shears for the top of his head and trim around his eyes with small sissors with rounded tips. Also use ear powder to pull hair from ears. I would say maybe an hour for his body. I stand him on a table with no tie down. He stands well as I think he is afraid of falling / jumping off!! First time i did it in the house, we have a stainless island in the kitchen. 2nd time was outside on a plastic table however it is strong, one that folds up about 4 ft long. I also don't use clippers for his nails, I use an emery board like what you would use for callouses on your feet. If it doesn't work out and you get the clipper from Walmart you can always return it! The one I bought is like this: link below.

I have been wondering about buying a clipper kit and trying it, doing the job yourself certainly is cheaper!

how long does it take to do Louise?

what steps do you take to do it?

I groom Molson myself. I looked into it and was getting quotes of $90+. Decided I could try it myself, bought the cutter from Walmart and have done him a few times already. I don't want a really short coat as I don't want him looking like a poodle so leave him a little long. Will do again in a week or so. Much easier at home and less stressful for him.

Our Dexter's 6 months old now and he went for grooming last May.  Our groomer recommends every 2 - 3 months, even longer if you want longer hair.  But make sure you brush it often.

I'm laughing at myself - I should have read your post before asking where you are

 

I used to live in Oakville before moving north to Orillia
