The HipDog© Grooming Tool Kit
If you are learning to groom from our
Reality Pet Grooming Home Study DVD Series© then you will need some
of the proper tools to make the job easier! It is important to use the proper
equipment AND take proper care of it so its last longer.
The life of a scissor depends on how
you protect them. Do NOT let your scissors hit the floor. Once they do, you will need to call
a sharpener who knows what he is doing to realign and rebalance them for you.
It gets expensive when you start replacing blades and scissors
because you dropped them or they got kicked out of your hand and hit the concrete, you
will learn to protect your tools.
Sharpeners can usually fix the shear but its never quite like it was when it was new, so
make that new last as long as possible!
We've put together a complete equipment kit
for you with everything you need to get started. These are all good, solid brand names
that are necessary to learning to do this the correct way the first time.

You will also need to purchase a standard grooming table and grooming
arm with noose to control the dogs safely and humanely. This gives you two free
hands to work on the dog with.
We can also order grooming tables and arms for you arranging for delivery
directly to you.
Used equipment is nearly always available online on sites like Petgroomer.com and Craigslist
