Choosing The Right Clippers For You
Many dog breeds have to be clipped regularly to maintain a healthy skin and coat, particularly breeds like the poodle, and the poodle cross. Maintaining your pet’s coat in between professional grooms, or
undertaking trims and tidy-ups at home is possible. Use the following advice to help you select the best equipment for your needs:
- Have you clipped your pet before?
Consult professionals about correctly clipping your animals. Read about the breed standard to determine an appropriate hair length for the pets comfort, health and lifestyle. Consider where the animals will be clipped as a cordless device may be necessary. For nervous animals, invest in a quiet clipper like the Andis ACG Single Speed Clipper.
- Do you want to trim your pet between grooms?
Opt for a good quality pet trimmer to eradicate excess hair. The Andis PM1 Trimmer or the Moser Arco Rechargeable Trimmer are good choices as they are designed for delicate work around the face and feet.
- Will you be periodically clipping off a coated breed?
Choose a tool with interchangeable blades. This allows you to change the length according to season or the style of your preference. The Andis MBG2 Pro Pet Clipper is ideal for this kind of work. However, a thick or matted coat may need professional attention.
- Do you have several small pets?
Choose a clipper with several changeable blades and combs to vary the length of the coat according to the breed standard for each pet, such as the Wahl Multi-cut Clippers. Remember; the higher the number on the blade, the shorter and finer the cut. For very small pets with hard to reach areas, try the Wahl Soft Touch Pet Trimmer.
