Choose an area, inside or outside, that is easy to sweep or vacuum. Begin by inspecting your pet for sore spots, cuts, irritations, abrasions, or sensitive areas. Do not use the de-shedding tool on these spots.
Do a light grooming to de-tangle and remove loose hair. Then shampoo and dry your pet's coat thoroughly.
When de-shedding your pet, start from the head and move down the body. Comb with the hair direction. Do not use on or around sensitive areas like ears, paws, legs, or genitals.
