Learn More About Dog Grooming Clippers

Some of the best professional pet hair clipper brands used in dog grooming are valued for their powerful, long-lasting motors. However, the needs of stylists might not be in line with the at-home styling needs of pet parents. Since they typically have more room and special grooming tables, they might not value the ease and maneuverability of wireless clippers. And because quality dog clippers are often a business expense for them, they may not focus on price or manufacturer warranties as pet parents do.

While stylist-quality clippers can have many of the qualities you value, you should evaluate each brand and type of trimmer based on the specific needs of you and your pup.

Veterinarians typically use clippers to trim the fur around a wound or a surgery site. They may require fewer attachments and combs than groomers, who perform various tasks. However, veterinarians need to stock up on blades and cleaning solutions to help ensure a close, comfortable and hygienic shave. If you’re looking for clippers for a dog with stitches or another injury requiring shaving, consult your vet to see what they use or recommend.
