When grooming HAIR sticks to clothes so use a professional grooming tunic as they repel hair, trust me its bloody itchy and can be painful if gets in your eyes !!!

Argon Oil, Coconut Oil, Biotin Shampoo and Conditioner, all shampoos and conditioners should be diluted x 10 and pups shouldnt have any scented product before 12 months of age to avoid stressing their immune systems

Hair dryers if more than 1 doggy it is best to get a stand dryer to avoid back issues , if not get a multi blower that will allow cool settings and variable speeds

Nose trimmers are great to trim around eyes nose and repro bits, Vaseline and a styptic pencil are a must as is a small container of the following

Plain flour
Plasters for YOU
Hair wax
Doggy hair spray
Spray bottle to keep coat damp
