# *CLOSED* Review & Giveaway: Scaredy Cut® The Silent Home Pet Grooming Kit

Posted in Doggies, Past Giveaways, Reviews on 05. Feb, 2013

The **Scaredy Cut®** grooming kit is the perfect product for cats and dogs that are fearful of the noisy clippers used when grooming. A day or so after I received the Scaredy Cut I bumped into my friend Monica who not only has her own senior dogs but often has several fosters she is caring for. She told me how scared some of the dogs are about grooming and I thought she would be a perfect person to use the Scaredy Cut! Below is Monica’s thoughts, as well as the before and after pictures she took.

*I was asked to try the Scaredy Cut® silent pet grooming kit and the Tiny Trim scissors as we have several senior dogs that are fearful of being groomed. I started with Tatianna who will be 16 soon. She is a Lhasa/Chinese Crested mix. Her hair is very fine and tends to tangle easily. She is a certified therapy dog so it is very important for her to always look clean and well groomed during her visits. She usually gets very nervous and tries to bite during grooming. I started with the grooming tool that looks and works like a pair of scissors. It has a blade on the end that snaps on and off easily and it comes with six different blade sizes so you can cut as much or little hair as you desire. I did go online and watch the video first to make sure I would know how to use it correctly. I was concerned that it wouldn’t fit my large fingers but then I realized that it has finger inserts to make it adjustable for all sizes of fingers.*

*I was able to groom Tatianna with only a few breaks. Since it’s not a clipper, there wasn’t that noise to make her anxious. You use the tool just like a comb so she didn’t seem to realize that I was actually cutting her hair. It does make the usual scissor noises but nothing more. She had a few knots in her hair and I was able to cut through those fairly easily. I ended up using the Tiny Trim scissors for her face and paws. She was much more cooperative with those as well and I didn’t have to worry about cutting her as they have rounded tips.*

*Tatianna did so well, and it was so easy to use, that I started grooming some of the others. By the time I was done, all the long haired dogs in the house had been groomed and trimmed. They all tolerated it much better than the clippers. It was quick and easy to use. I did find myself getting confused at times as to which way I should have the blade turned. I think with more practice, it will become easier and her hair cut will look smoother. I was thrilled to actually be able to groom her so completely in such a short period of time. Usually, I leave the grooming table up and groom her over a period of a few days.*

*I would highly recommend the Scaredy Cut® grooming kit, especially for people with older pets or ones that are difficult to groom. It was very easy to use and the dogs tolerated it much better than the electric clippers or regular scissors. I didn’t have to worry about cutting them since the grooming tool has the guide on the end and the scissors have rounded ends.*

The video above is posted on Scaredy Cut’s website to show us how to use it. There are six combs included with barber scissors, which helps groom a variety of dogs that have different lengths of hair. This is great for homes with multiple dogs because you can simply choose the comb that is right for the dog you are grooming. The lengths are Comb #1 – 0.5″, Comb #2 – 0.6″, Comb #3 – 0.7″, Comb #4 – 0.8″, Comb #5 – 0.9″, Comb #6 – 1″.

If you have a dog that is afraid of grooming, simply introduce the product for a few days before trying to groom him/her. There are several ways to introduce something new. For instance, when I introduced the nail clippers I placed them in the toy box the first day. The second day I took them out of the toy box and placed them on the dog’s beds throughout the day. The third day I put them on the floor where they were playing. I would also pick the clippers up and touch them on their legs or paws; I even placed them near the water bowl on the floor. During these introductions I would treat them if they sniffed the clippers. I did this for a few days to get them used to the clippers. I recommend doing something similar with dogs who don’t like to be groomed.

The **award-winning** Scaredy Cut is the silent way to cut your pet’s fur without the vibration and noise of typical grooming clippers, making it comfortable for your pet. Also available is the Tiny Trim scissor, a small scissor for the face, paw, ear and nose. Both the Tiny Trim and Scaredy Cut has a ball-tipped blade for added safety.

The Scaredy Cut can be used on your cat or dog and you can order one on Amazon.com via the link below or find retailers by **clicking here**.

Thank you very much for the great giveaway! I have 2 Lhasas. I can’t afford to get them groomed every 4-6 weeks, so I always end up trimming around their eyes, behinds, feet, etc. in between grooms. One of them sits there like a statue, and the other…no so much! LOL!

I’ve got my fingers crossed! We could really use a new kit! Thank you!
