The blades are the single most important part of this clipper.2. Blades do not become dulled from cutting hair - they are dulled by the abrasive particles on the hair.3. Clipper blades should be oiled BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER clipping; most clipper problems are due to a lack of oil to lubricate or cool.4. Blades will not cut if abrasive particles are picked up and carried by the oil film between the blades. These particles tend to hold the blades apart and caused chewing and pulling instead of clean cutting.5. Oiling the blades performs two distinct functions:Provides a low friction, very thin film lubricant between the cutting blades so that they can take a full cutting stroke without becoming hot from frictional heat.Flushes abrasive particles and hairs out from between the blades. NOTE: If you cut into dirt, immediately wash the blades with oil to flush it out. Working the tapering lever back and forth will assist in removing the dirt particles. Grooming and Styling Your DogAssemble your supplies: Clipper, oil, blades, screwdriver, slicker brush, attachment combs and comb, scissors, tear-free shampoo, dryer, rubber bath mat, nail cutters. Be sure all your equipment is in good working condition and easy to reach. Grooming should be done on a solid table (about 30" high) with a non-slip surface to give your dog a steady and secure footing. A grooming post to secure the dog would be of considerable aid. Good lighting is essential. The light should be adequately bright and evenly distributed; there should be no shadows.Steps in grooming 1. Brush out coat thoroughly. Remove all snarls, knots, tangles and mats. Part the hair and brush on 1" sections. Brush from skin out. 2. Bath time. Soak the dog thoroughly. Apply shampoo and work into a good lather. Pay attention to the rectum and pads (bottom of the paws). Be careful also not to get soap in the dog's eyes (for safety use a tear-free shampoo). Rinse very thoroughly. Squeeze legs, ears and tail. Towel dry. Fluff dry or brush and dry. Start with the legs using a wire brush and moving up to body. Direct dryer to the area you are brushing. Do one spot at a time. Use light, fluffing strokes. There should be no snags or tangles when you are done.
