Default Andis dog clippers, great company, great product

One of my dogs has thick nappy hair. She gets hot and sheds like crazy in the summer, so we shave her. After two trips to the groomers at $50 a pop, I buzzed her with my personal buzzers (my wife cuts my hair sometimes). It was slow going but it worked. So I bought a replacement pair and used my old Ones on her.

Couple years ago we stepped it up with a middle of the road pair made by andis. Price point around $120. Lasted two seasons, and i was Less than thorough to say the least on my maintenance of them. Last summer they gummed up and Wouldn't cut. I took them apart and couldn't get them to work right, so we sent them back. Andis basically rebuilt them for the shipping cost of around $20.

Just gave her her first cut with the "new" buzzers, worked silky smooth. 60# shepherd mix, took all of twenty minutes. She is super proud and comfortable Right now too, which makes me happy.

Highly recommend.

I use Andis for my head. They are great and the ceramic blades don't get too hot. No problems yet but good to hear they stand behind the product.

Here's the hair off two Australian shepherds. I added the eye balls. They are a great product. I use them to cut my own hair too. All eight of them

Very timely thread. We are currently looking at dog clippers and Andis seems to always come out on top. Even exchanged M's this weekend with a member here who knows what he's talking about and he recommends Andis. Looks like Andis it is!

Bottom feeder that's a great pic. The eyeballs are a nice touch. I should've done the same before sweeping it up. It was an impressive pile.

I'd be too damn nervous to try it on my goldendoodle unless I had someone coaching me. It'd save me $70 every 2-3 months though.

From what perspective? I guarantee it wont look as good as the groomers, but its totally functional, and with a good set of clippers is pain free.

This same dog has been run off by cats and event he occasional tough looking squirrel. Break out the garden hose and she is tail tucked running for the hills. But she will stand patiently while I buzz her because she loves how much cooler it is.

When in doubt, a visit to youtube university will surely provide adequate coaching.

It comes with all the attachments just like a person one. I threw them in the garbage. The shorter I cut it the longer til I have to do it again.

You can probably learn on your own. I learned by watching my breeder/groomer do it. I'm sure youtube has plenty of info.
I have two Standards that I clip often. Especially this time of year.
Not sure how Goldendoodles are cut. I use a #10 blade on the faces and feet and a #7 blade on their body.

I would think you would need a #7 for everything. Get two blades because they get hot. I just switch them out and let one cool.
And get a good pair of scissors. And a can of cooling spray.
