Dog Clippers Tips

If you have a dog that requires a lot of trips to the groomers, well, you know it can be expensive, so buying your own set of dog clippers and clipping your dog yourself might sound like a good idea. It should save you money and a lot of hassle.

But before you buy your clippers you will have to decide which ones are right for you and your dog, some popular makes are Andis, Oster and Wahl. Not all dog clippers are for the one purpose. Some are for trimming or grooming your dog in different areas of their body and they can come in different sizes, some being for larger dogs, some for smaller dogs. Price also will be a big factor.

If you are buying dog clippers for the first time buying a kit might be a good idea. These usually come with dog clippers, guard, comb, scissors etc and some even come with a DVD giving you tips and showing you how to groom a dog.

Usually the best thing to do when deciding on your clippers is to look at customer reviews or even better, talk to somebody that you know that has bought the same dog clippers you are thinking on. In my experience if you invest in a good set at the start, they might cost more than you are planning on but if you look after them well, they will last you a long time and this will probably save you money in the long run.

So how do you look after them? Well some tips would be to clean them well and oil them regularly and after each use. This will stop the blade from jamming and lubricate the blade, which will stop it from wearing out as quick.

When your finished with your dog clippers always but them back in their storage case or a safe place. This will stop them getting knocked about which might damage their delicate parts.

Always wash your dog before clipping. This will get rid of the mud and dirt in your dog’s coat which would cause more friction on your dog clipper’s blade. This will cause it to wear quicker. Always remember to dry your dog first but with the likes of a hair dryer before you start clipping.

When you are clipping your dog always check to see if your clipper’s blade is getting hot. Never let it get too hot – this will burn your dog and cause your dog pain. It is also bad for your clippers blade. If you feel it getting hot cool it down with clipper coolant.
