Dog grooming clippers are required if you need to clip your dog’s fur. Clipping is the most expensive maintenance to have if you have a dog. And this is especially true if the fur is very thick. If you don’t have your clippers, then the grooming can be done by a professional, which can be very expensive.
When shopping for clippers, the price is a very important determining factor. Of course, more expensive clippers have more features. And these features are more advanced, like for example, having interchangeable blade sizes, multiple speeds, and a battery pack.
If your dog has thick fur, your dog grooming clippers must have multiple blade sizes because it would take awhile to clip the fur of your dog. Dog owners prefer the clippers with a cord so they would just have to plug it into the electric socket if the battery needs charging while grooming the dog.
Oster is the name of a clipper maker that is highly respected. Although there are other manufacturers, the poster-style interchangeable blades are very popular. Oster clippers also come in single speed or two speeds. Both the single speed and two speeds use 220-240 AC power. Both also come with a size 10 blade.
Another maker is the Andis. Andis dog grooming clippers have a range of different types of clipper and sets. It also has two speeds clippers for extra strength when trimming the dog’s very thick coat. Andis also has cordless grooming clipper. Known as Andic power trim cordless rechargeable trimmer D-4, it comes with a rechargeable stand.
Some grooming clippers come with grooming blade and comb or brush. This brush or comb is needed to brush off the coat that is trimmed or to brush out the coat that should not be included in trimming. The clippers too need to be serviced as part of their maintenance, like sharpening them together with the blades every year or so depending on how often they are used.
If your dog clippers are used for personal use, then surely the clippers and the blade will not go dull quickly as compared to when they are used commercially such as hosting a dog grooming salon. There are also times when you need to apply oil to the clippers’ mechanics inside the device. It could also be that the fur clippings of the dog will be sucked in a while trimming
The blade of the clipper is an important consideration when you purchase clippers.
