    I understand…if you notice in the USA english cockers are (considered over groomed) I don't know who started this phase, or when, but in the shows here they expect it…I like to watch videos from different lands because it's SO different.. I have yet to notice the differance between a C.K. groomed dog and one that has been groomed with other tools. Except for the grooming being easier and faster.For a long time I didn't own a Coat King and owned ECS! Thanks for watching and your comment

    I love the C.K.! It helps so much! Was nice to see a video of someone using it the way we do, we keep it a bit of a secret that we use it that way lol you know how it it, keeping some tricks secret, I know the only person who has won groomer of the year twice and she didn't know this trick till she saw me doing it! Thanks for your video x

    OMG I have two English Cockers and I groom them myself, it does look to me like this tool hurts the dog by pulling their hair? I know mine and they wouldn't allow me near them with that! I prefer the traditional Andis clippers, seems to me they suffer less!

    Oh god, this looks terribly painful. I would NEVER even consider using this on my cocker. That poor dog must be in pain – there is no he could not be – look at his skin and the way he is being pulled back and imagine that as your hair, then imagine that you were tied up, no way of escape, and had that pain over the majority of your body. Barbaric practice – am I glad my girl is in the UK!

    Hi, can you tell me whether the coat king removes the undercoat or outer coat for stripping?

    SORRY you think this LOOKS painful. It's NOT! Do you see my dog crying??? Normally I take a lot longer with his grooming but for the filming we had to work faster. Suprisingly enough this is just like COMBING your dog! But by all means groom your dog your way, I DO

    Yes, but I like to have my dogs have short hair but NOT totally shaved. I do shave around his head , face , ears. MY DOGS DO NOT SUFFER. If I were to shave my "SABLE " English Cocker he would be a tan dog!

    The reason we made this video, most people are afraid of this tool. BUT they need to use one before they complain about it! I have never hurt my dogs with this but have shaved to close. It does depend on each dogs coats. I have 3 english cockers. a party (black & white) with very cottony hair, a Liver roan with silky smooth hair and a sable that is multi colored, underneth hair is tan, very thick. Each is groomed differantly. Sable are never shaved or they will loose all their top coat.

    Call that grooming ? more like ripping the fuck out of its skin.

    the under coat is mostly where the hair comes rom. when you see groomers hand pulling,( stripping the under coat) this is the same affect. Like on a golden retriever, they have two coats, a very fine fluffy ,and the coarser top coat. They would use a differant size coat king,but it would have the same affect. My Sable English Cocker has a light tan undercoat and his top (courser coat is dark taupe to black. So you'll see after grooming he's a darker richer color.

    I use the Mars coat king on my English Cocker. It does not hurt them one bit. I have been using it since he was 10 weeks old. He Loves it. He lays down and goes to sleep while I'm doing it. The hard part is keeping him standing up. He does that foot thing like he is being tickled or rubbed when I do his belly and chest. This is a magic tool! It means I don't have to use Clippers on my Cocker except for his throat and the top of his ears.

    I am not a professional groomer as you'll see in my link I'll post to my dog, but this thing works well and Danny Loves it. Let me repeat, there is ZERO pain involved here. It does not pull any hair out. Now a Furminator, not the same thing. That can really carve up a dog's skin. Like I said, Danny lays down, exposes his belly and Loves it. I hear a lot of whining here from folks who have never touched one and have no clue about what they are talking about.

    I tried linking a pic of my ECS that had just been Coat Kinged but couldn't get it to work. You can see it in my Channel as "Danny at 10 months"

    I don't think you realize that what we're showing you is a shortcut to getting the heavy undercode out with not a lot of time and mess

    I thought this was a great demonstration and I learned a lot! Thank you for posting. Im sorry that some of the posts have not been so nice, and I hope that wont deter you from posting videos in the future. The coat king has rounded blades that dont "cut" the dog, and the only hair that is coming out of the dog is DEAD hair. Saying this hurts the dog is like saying your in pain when you brush your hair, its only dead hair that ends up in your brush.

    What a lot of people don't realize is this tool is used on your dog when you take it to the groomers. It does look like it could cause damage, but you'd be surprised at how dull it really is. It only takes out the dead hair in the dogs undercoat. I am taking a dog grooming course at the moment. I had the same reaction when I took it out of my grooming kit…but soon realized, if it's done right, it works and does NOT harm the dog. You would do more damage ( brush burn) by brushing too much to get the undercoat.

    I respectfully disagree. If you wet the dog, it will cut and take more hair than you need, not good if you show a dog. It is better to do it with dry, dirty coat or to pull the hair, the traditional way, in my humble opinion and taste, of course

    At the moment, I'm stuck between a few breeds but I'm leaning more towards an english cocker spaniel. I fully intend on stripping the dog instead of clipping. I like the look of the Mars coat king. would you happen to know if they're available in the UK?

  28. Awesomedecorator September 4, 2015 at 2:05 pm - Reply

    They recommend a 26 blade if you show your ENGLISH COCKER SPANIEL, otherwise a size 20 for the same breed if not showing. What blade were you using on your demnstration dog?
