As you know, I’m all for DIY grooming around our house, not only to save money but also to lessen the stress on our dogs. I enjoy cutting hair (I’ve always cut John’s hair and my own!), and it’s a bonding time with Tiki. (Irie wants her hair cut but it’s too short!)
If you’ve ever used electric clippers on your dog, though, you know that the sound can be frightening to many dogs. And if you are cutting your dog’s hair with scissors, you know that it can be a bit scary, as you worry about snipping your dog’s skin or poking her with the end of the scissors. I go really slowly when I cut Tiki’s hair so I’ve never had a problem…but it is a worry.
Because of this, I was really interested in trying out Scaredy Cut, an 8-piece grooming kit for dogs and cats. Basically the Scaredy Cut consists of a pair of barber scissors with rounded tips so you don’t have to worry about poking your dog with sharp scissors.
But the most unique part of the kit are the attachment combs. As with electric clippers, these attachments fit on the scissors and provide a longer or shorter cut. They also (and this was the best part to me!) prevent you from catching your dog’s skin, ears, or nipples in the blade. They serve as a guard. You can then use the scissors much like you’d use an electric clipper but without the sound or vibration.
The Scaredy Cut was very easy to use. I think the confidence of having the guard made ME more confident with my haircutting skills. As with many things we do with our dogs, they sense our confidence, and they relax, too. Doesn’t Tiki look relaxed? Her haircut was easy to do, and she’s now a lot cooler!
