Dog Clippers
Getting a dog involves more than only feeding and walking it. Dog owners need to stick to a grooming regimen to help keep their pet healthy and happy. A part of a healthy dog’s lifestyle is a suitable grooming kit for home use and in between regular grooming appointments with a professional groomer. A complete dog grooming kit should have brushes, shears, a nail trimmer, and a good shampoo for your pet specifically.

Our focus right now is on the pet trimmer or dog clipper.There are a number ofDog Clippers to choose from, ranging in different price brackets. From experience, I can attest that the lower the price of the clippers, the more disappointment will result. A number of well-known manufacturers, such as Oster, Andis and Wahl, create a good quality product that will last much longer, at a mid-range price. Remember to just use groomers that are created specifically for use on dogs.

Caring for your pet’s coat can be a daunting task. If you need help with how to properly clip, brush or clean your pet’s coat, check with a professional groomer or your veterinarian. You should be able to get some advice from your groomer in between their appointments. This helps make the grooming experience — both at home and at the groomer’s — a pleasant one.

* Price range that suits your budget
* A product made by a well-known manufacturer
* The option to change the speed of the blade
* RPM’s – the higher the RPM, the cleaner the cut
* Weight of clipper (there are battery operated models that weigh only ounces…while the electric pet trimmers can weigh one pound)
* What options are available for the blades and what does the manufacture have in terms of interchangeable blades
* Battery operated or standard electric corded pet trimmer

A pet clipper should be of high quality, light and fairly noiseless. The right handling of the pet clipper will provide an even trim and a relaxing experience for your pet. Should you need help in how to manage the dog groomer on your pet, enquire about a quick appointment with your pet groomer to get help.We would sooner help you maintain your pet’s coat than for you wait too long and have to have your pet’s coat completely removed.

When you find a great pet groomer, it will make the job of grooming much easier and it will be a tool that lasts for a long time.
