As an avid participant of dog shows it's important to have the best dog grooming equipment available. The most important piece of equipment to have on hand is a high quality set of dog clippers. When I first began showing dogs, I used equipment that many would consider inadequate. Low quality shears will leave the dogs coat looking uneven and choppy. This is a big "No No" on the dog show circuit. I learned this the hard way. If you are considering grooming your own dogs then I recommend using the best dog clippers you can find.
Professional dog groomers charge a small fortune for their services and when you own a dog or dogs that need constant grooming then the cost really starts to add up. A high quality set of shears will run you around the same as two or three groomings from a dog groomer.
When I began doing my own grooming, I was terrible. But, after a few attempts, I started to get the hang of it and, in no time at all, I was able to get professional quality cuts without having to pay someone else to do it.
With many years of experience behind me and, through trial and error, I have narrowed down which shears work the best and will last for many years. In this article we will look at Andis and Oster and try to determine which brand makes the best dog clippers.
