Welcome to Clean Cuts Home Dog Grooming.
Hi, I’m Tracy.
I’ve lived in Exmouth all my life and have always had a very keen interest in animals.Me and Lucky
When I was growing up I wanted to work in the animal field. I have loved dogs since I was very young but never had one of my own, they were always very special creatures and I decided that I would like to work with them.
I got my first dog when I was 16 years old, she has taught me a lot and really driven my love of dogs to new heights.
When I left school I went to Bicton College to study for a National Award in Animal Management. This covered a variety of subjects including nutrition, husbandry, welfare and psychology (to name but a few). I left Bicton College 2 years later with a Distinction grade pass.
After this I went back to Bicton College for a dog grooming course and upon completing that course, began Clean Cuts Home Grooming.
I have recently completed a canine first aid course with animal aiders which I have a certificate for.
I offer a professional dog grooming service in the Exmouth, Exeter and East Devon areas.
My priority is to make your special friend feel safe and secure and that is precisely the reason I come to your home.
Services offered by Clean Cuts Home Groomingclippers
CLIPPING- Clipping is a process that involves a pair of heavy duty clippers to clip your dogs hair to the required length.
STRIPPING- Stripping is a process of removing the dead hair by pulling it out, this does not hurt the dog as only the dead hair is removed. This process can only be carried out on certain breeds such as the Border terrier and only at certain times of the year when the coat is shedding. If you would like your dog to be stripped they must not have been clipped for at least a year preferably not been clipped before at all.
BRUSHING- This is removing the undercoat and dead hair from the dog promoting healthy shiny fur and good skin. On most breeds I use a special brush called the FURMINATOR as far as I am aware I am the only local groomer to use this product, I wouldn’t use any other as the results are amazing. For more information about this product visit the local numbers section and you will find a direct link to the furminator website.
SCISSORING- This is just really to tidy up, it’s good if the coat is a length you can cope with, scissoring tidiesScissors up the feathers (back of legs) and the skirt (underbelly). Some examples of breeds that would benefit form scissoring include Collies and German Shepherds.etc.
BATHING -This consists of 2 shampoos followed by a conditioner. I have special shampoos for sensitive skin which contain tea tree oil and other shampoos depending on the type of coat.
DRYING- This is done using an ordinary hairdryer, I do have a big combi dryer but I have found it to be too loud and powerful and frightens some dogs. Although it takes longer I would rather the dog is happy. I DO NOT use cage dryers as I don’t think they give the dog any freedom and are quite intimidating.
NAIL TRIMMING-This is done with strong nail clippers. White nails are much easier than black nails to cut as with white nails you can see the quick. Black nails you have to be much more careful with and just cut little bits at a time until they are a suitable length. Ususally your dogs nails will wear down naturally with regular pavement exercise but sometimes they grow extremly fast or your dog doesn’t get exercised on hard surfaces which is when they would need to be cut.
EAR PLUCKING- This is only carried out if needed or specified. This is the process of pulling out the hair that goes down the ear canal, a couple of bits at a time with ear forceps. This is not necessary in all breeds but is quite common in breeds such as the Shih Tzu.
EAR CLEANING- I clean ears if they smell or if a waxy discharge is present, I use a ointment that you drop into the ear and it removes the wax. This is not something I do very often as the majority of dogs don’t suffer with ear problems. I have to agree with the motto, ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’.
