How to Choose the Best Grooming Clippers for your Furry Friend?
If you want to make sure your four-legged friend gets the best quality trim, you’ll need to be sure you’re buying the best equipment for them. Perhaps you want to save a little money on dog grooming services or you’re looking to start your very own business? No matter whatever your situation is, this review of the best dog clippers will make sure you have the best tool for the job.
There are many different types of dog clippers with all sorts of features and varying prices. The style of clippers you need depends on different things like the type of grooming you’ll be doing, the type of dog you have and your budget for grooming. To help you figure out exactly what the best clippers are there for you, here is our helpful guide that will give you an overall summary of each set of clippers featured below:
1. Motor power
To make the trimming process smooth and painless for your pooch, it’s important to buy dog grooming clippers that have a motor powerful enough for your needs. There are different levels of power which will be suitable for different types of hair.
If you have a dog with thick hair, you’ll need to look for clippers with a higher RPM like AGC Super 2 Speed Clippers. The rotations per minute decide how quickly the motor spins around, so a higher number will be more suitable for a dog with a thicker coat.
Motor power is something to consider if you’re running a grooming service as you may need to invest in multiple clippers with varying RPM levels.
2. Heat, noise and vibration
Although power is important, you need to make sure you get the right balance because there are several issues that come with more powerful clippers.
Dog hair clippers with a higher RPM will heat up quicker, give off more noise and create more heavy vibrations. This can be a problem if you’re grooming a shy or nervous pooch.
It’s important to make sure your furry friend is comfortable when they get their hair cut so be sure to choose clippers that are powerful enough to trim them without causing any discomfort. Our recommendation on this would be Excel 5 speed detachable blade clipper.
3. Weight and size
The size of your clippers is often down to personal preference however it also depends to some extent on the type of dogs you’ll be grooming.
You want to make sure that the clippers you use are comfortable to hold, aren’t too heavy and have an ergonomic design that won’t cause you any discomfort. Depending on the size of the dogs you’ll be giving a haircut, you may require different sized clippers.
Smaller dogs may require smaller clippers like to trim those hard-to-reach places. ABK Grooming has all the types of shapes and sizes with us so be sure to shop around and find the best design of clippers to meet your needs. Our recommendation on this would be Pro – Animal EBC detachable blade clipper.
4. Corded vs cordless
You have the choice to settle on rechargeable or corded dog hair clippers, each of that goes along with completely different features and advantages.
Cordless clippers offer a lot more flexibility and convenience when cutting your dog’s hair, but they are often less powerful, more expensive and need replacing sooner when the battery becomes worn out due to excessive charging.
Mains-powered clippers offer more power and don’t need to be recharged. However, they can be a lot more restrictive when it comes to where you can give your pooch a haircut because you will need to be located near a power outlet. There are benefits on both the sides that you need to weigh up before deciding on the best option for your needs.
We offer both types of clippers and the best one in corded would be Endurance 2 Speed Detachable Blade Clipper whereas in cordless you should go for Pulse ZR II Cordless Clipper.
