    Default Mar's Coat King

    has anyone used Mar's Coat King?

    I have been clipping my mini Schnauzer but love to keep his lovely wiry coat as clipping makes coat softer and lighter.

    Love to hear from you.

    Yes I use two different length ones on my setter. It is best to use them on a clean coat as it keeps the blades in good condition so I only use them after bathing.

    I'd probably speak to a groomer though regarding your dogs coat as it is much different from a setters and spaniels which they are used on a lot.

    A groomer my be able to suggest a different type, I can picture the one they use but don't know it's name it looks more like a very short toothed comb with a razor in it.

    Thanks. Stripping seems to be a very daunting process for me and my mini sch. Could you please tell me which No of Coat King you have used? Clippingworld recommends No 12 but internet resource says lower No such as No8. I feel though it might be too wide for my mini sch though he has rather wiry coat to the point people thought I stripped him. His coat is similar to standard sch.

    Sorry there is no number on either of the combs and they were purchased about 4 yrs ago direct from the supplier at an expo.

    You do have to apply some pressure to the shorter section of the coat to strip away hair with the Mars.

    So I still would be hesitant to say that the Mars combs are the right choice for your breed.

    My Gordon Setter was a fidget as a puppy to groom but as she's gotten older she has settled down and now will run to the grooming table the minute she see her grooming tool box being taken out. Over time most dogs really get to love it.
