Finding a Mars Coat King


Recommended Posts

Where did everyone buy their MCK's? Did you have to order online or were you able to buy them in a store?

I live in Canada and the price of shipping from the US is quite high so if anyone knows of a store or Canadian outlet that sells them that would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I'm seeing them all over the place these days. Try the vendors at a local dog show is one idea. I did buy ours online at groomersmall.com. I see Amazon has an Oster lookalike version version in steel. We use the 16-blade.

I haven't seen them in stores. We got ours from Colonel Potter Cairn Rescue Network. Go to cairnrescue.com. At the site click on the Shopping Mall, and then Grooming Supplies. It says shipping is $4.00, but I don't know if that includes Canada.

I got mine from the Col. Potter Rescue site here. Sorry, but I don't know how they handle shipping to Canada.

If you're going to order, you might also find the thinning shears and stripping knife set useful. I use thinning shears on Packy's legs and "beard". I use the stripping knives on his face and legs. As long as you're paying shipping, you might as well order everything you need.

Good luck!

Please excuse me for not answering the question that was asked, but...

I've started accumulating far more grooming tools than I ever would have imagined. One of the first stripping tools that I bought was the Mars Coat King and I find that I hardly ever use it. I really prefer the Furminator and I am gradually working more with stripping knives. I have three different breeds of dogs, all with different types of coats, and I don't use the MCK as my first choice of grooming tool on any of them. Even my cat prefers the Furminator.

If I had to replace the tools that I use to groom my Cairn I would buy: blunt tipped scissors, thinning shears, brush, comb, toothbrush, nail clippers, Furminator and a couple stripping knives. These tools and a matt splitter (for my Toller) would just about cover the grooming needs of each of my dogs. The MCK would not be replaced!

This is what works for me.

Groomers mall- we use the 12. The dog shows have them but they are a lot higher in price.

It's because cats simply can't be trusted for heavy lifting & dirty work required in the war on terrior.
