Thread: Need to buy clippers

    Question Need to buy clippers

    Hi
    I have a cross breed dog that is going to need clipping soon. I would like to have a go at it myself. Does anyone have any information on clippers that work well and are reasonably priced? Also where best to buy them, online or from pet stores. Roley is still a puppy but will grow large, as he is a standard poodle cross. Thanks in advance.

    What about asking the breeder where you got your pup from ? They would/should be able to tell you exactly what they use on their dogs. Do they have a web page ?

    Labradoodles can be a bit hit and miss with their coat types – so it is a bit difficult to suggest what would be best for your pup’s particular coat type just over the internet.

    Why not look at you doing a grooming course ?

    Are you using a brush or anything on Roley at present ? It is best to get him totally OK with you touching all his bits very early on - mouth, ears, legs, feet, back, back end, tail and tummy - massaging and brushing are good ways of achieving this !

    Totally agree with Riley J's advice. While he's still young get him totally used to you handling his whole body especially the feet. Most of my previous dogs hated their feet been touched but i constantly rubbed Mojo's while he was little and now he has no drama with it.

    Also dont just turn on the clippers and touch him with them the first time.....give him plenty of time to sniff and see it, them turn it on and let him get used to the noise. I'd do this slowly over a few days just to be sure. MY mums Shi-htzu is a nightmare to clip because hes scared stiff of the clippers. Not sure what clippers she uses, next time i see her i'll ask. Good luck.

    Thanks for that Riley J. I check out Roley everyday. Especially in light of all the bindi's that are around. I have to de-bindi and grass seed after every walk especially around the feet. Hes fine with me touching his feet but not too happy when I touch around his head and neck except when he is tired.
    cheers
