Dog Hair Grooming Clippers

Grooming is not just about keeping up appearances. Good dog grooming can mean the difference between a sick and a healthy canine. Keep your pup looking and feeling healthy with dog grooming supplies from Chewy. Proper grooming begins with your hound’s hair. To maintain a good trim, you’ll need a good pair of dog grooming clippers. At Chewy, we carry a wide range of dog hair clippers and shears from today’s top brands, including Wahl pet clippers, Andis pet clippers and Oster pet clippers. Grooming is an important part of dog ownership, but it can be a somewhat scary event for dogs. It’s important to begin a grooming routine when your pup is young, so she’ll be used to the experience as she grows. Trimming your dog’s hair can take a while, so you’ll need to find ways to keep your pup relaxed. Some groomers use healthy dog treats to keep pets still during long grooming sessions. Trimming your canine’s fur can also help you catch certain health conditions early. This is a good time to look for signs of ticks and other pests. When it comes to picking the best dog clippers for you and your canine, consider things like hair length and the size of the dog. The Wahl Deluxe Clipper Kit comes with everything you’ll need to groom your four-legged friend. Designed for pets with fine to medium coats, this kit works well for breeds like Labradors, Cavaliers, Shih Tzus, Spaniels and Maltese. The dog grooming clippers feature high-performance steel blades, and the kit comes with seven attachment guide combs for styling and an instructional grooming DVD. If you find dog clippers intimidating, consider dog shears instead. ConairPRO dog shears feature soft-grip material and finger rests to make grooming more comfortable. Rounded tips make these dog shears ideal for facial trimming around the eyes, nose and ears. Keep your canine’s coat looking and feeling healthy with dog clippers and shears from Chewy's online pet store where you find the best dog products.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Hair Grooming Clippers

What are the best kind of hair clippers and shears for dogs?

The best hair clippers for dogs will be easy for you to use and comfortable for your pup. Choose clippers made especially for dogs, as they are often quieter and include attachments made specifically for dog grooming. Consider your dog's coat type, size and temperament when choosing hair clippers for at-home grooming. Cordless, rechargeable hair clippers will sometimes be easier to maneuver, especially if you have a wiggly dog. Smaller clippers may make trimming small dogs or faces and paws easier, or choose a larger pair if you have bigger or hairier dog. Many dog clippers come with multiple attachments to handle different grooming needs.

What kind of dog clippers and shears do groomers use?

Groomers use a variety of dog clipper and shear types in their work. Dog clippers with various speeds provide added control during grooming, but single-speed clippers can work well for groomers, as well. Dog clippers with a more powerful motor may be necessary for grooming dogs with thicker coats, while smaller clippers may be better for grooming faces and paws and for grooming short-haired and small canines, as well. Many groomers use both cordless and corded dog clippers, depending on the job, and comb attachments let them groom many types of coats while using the same clipper base. Talk to your groomer or vet for tips on what type of dog clippers might be best for at-home use on your dog.

How do you use dog hair clippers?

Use dog hair clippers by setting the cutting depth to the right length and cutting in the direction of hair growth. Be sure to use sharp blades and a dog hair clipper that is powerful enough for your canine's coat length and type. Hold your dog firmly to avoid sudden movement and go slowly so you do not cause him anxiety. Brushing your dog to remove knots first can make the process a little easier. You may want to talk to your groomer or watch instructional videos to learn the right way to groom your dog.

What should I look for in dog clippers?

Look for dog clippers with a lightweight, ergonomic grip, low motor noise, and sturdy blades. Choose a type that is specifically designed for your dog's breed and coat type, and decide whether you want a corded or cordless model. If you choose a cordless model, pick one with a longer battery life so you won't have to worry about running out of charge. Dog clippers that come with several attachments or a comb set can make at-home grooming easier, too.
