Shedding Blades for Dogs | Dog Shedding Blades | Petco

In looking at my options I'm thinking a two-speed clipper would be better for a double-coated dog? I'm also wondering about the importance of "strokes per minute." I looked at two Andis clippers similarly priced with strokes per minute at 2600-3400. Then there were two others (Ultra Edge and Super 2) that were 3400-4400spm but they were about $20-30 more ($146). Is it worth the extra money to buy the higher spm with my Eskie? I read the faster blade, the smoother the finish, but I also read some reviews on Amazon about these higher spm models getting hot very quickly... so my head is spinning! I guess if I bought the less expensive model (Andis + AG) I could spend some of my savings on extra blades and cooling spray. :) Which reminds me, should I get any comb attachments or anything else?

DO NOT use skip tooth blades on cats. Keep skin taut when clipping dogs and cats.

I LOVE my Ultra Edge Andis clippers. I do about 10 dogs a week and they are so comfortable in my hand. Very light weight. I have ever used the ceramic blades though. Does anyone have any comment about the ceramic blades? As for the blade size for face , I always scissor because they can get irritated and scratch until they are raw (especially light dogs)

Lab. Owns 11 dogs. Hunts. There’s not much to say about the drawbacks of this dog clippers for Shih Tzu. Their mid-range position is justified. Not as powerful as the A5, but way more ergonomic and lacking the Oster model heating issues. As lightweight as the Bravura, but lacking a cordless mode and the handy 5-in-1 blade.

The first things you notice when buying clippers are the different blade sizes. Attentive as we may be, grooming your dog is one of those tasks that many of us studiously question. Which blade for which breed? Can we sharpen them, if so, how often? Here are some general guidelines and recommendations to help you tend to your dog’s grooming needs.Length of hair left when cutting against the natural lie of the coat, or on a dog with off-standing coat, such as a Poodle or Bichon Frise. Cutting with the grain of the coat on most breeds leaves it one blade length longer. For instance, a #7 blade leaves approximately 1/8" hair when going against, but will leave approximately 1/4" when going with the lie. The cut indicates the uniform length of hair which will be left when you use the designated blade. Higher blade numbers indicate shorter hair length ie: A #4 blade leaves 3/8 inch of hair, and a #40 leaves only 1/100 of an inch. For lengths longer than 5/8", use a blade guard or clipper blade comb.
