Wendy & Martin Hewitt are well known in NZ and especially in the South Island for their top winning Basset Hounds bred & shown under the Hunterspark kennel name since 1979 with 3 homebred Grand Champions to  date. They also own and breed Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshunds (Pentaki) and Petit Basset Griffon Vendeens (Beauvoir). 


When you see the Mars® logo you know it stands for first class grooming tools like the Coat-King, Stripping Knives, Scissors and Brushes, from the best materials, made in Solingen Germany - and available in NZ from Sole Agent Wendy Hewitt via NZ Show Dogs. Mars also produce the same quality products in left handed versions.

The Mars Coat King is recommended by professional groomers across the country who consider it an indispensable grooming tool. 

The Mars Coat King is the perfect tool for stripping large areas of matted fur in a short amount of time. The stainless steel teeth easily remove loose, shedding hair from thick undercoats without painfully pulling or damaging your dog's sensitive skin. Unlike clipping, the Mars Coat King only removes the dead hair from the coat which potentially cuts grooming time in half or quicker.

Don't forget to check out our Coat King Sizing Guide to see which tool is best suited for your pet!

The Coat King is great for stripping, dematting and a great grooming rake.
