Best Dog Grooming Clippers

Either you are a professional Dog Groomer or wanting to learn to clip your dog at home.

Today’s post is about the best dog clippers you can buy that suit your purpose.

We have listed and discussed below the top five clippers we recommend.

There are a few things to consider when buying dog grooming clippers. Dependent on if you are looking for corded or cordless clippers is the battery life and power.

You also want to consider motor speed. You want to look at the strokes per minute (SPM) on the clippers you are purchasing, the higher the SPM the faster the clippers move making it easier to get through your dog's coat. You can also get clippers with variable speeds but it's not always necessary. 

Another consideration is the weight of the clippers. If you are looking for something to groom your dog at home the weight won't matter too much but if you are pet grooming professionally you would want something lighter and easier on your hand and wrist.
