The best dog grooming clippers can make all the difference when it comes to trimming dog hair. I don’t know how many times I have heard pet owners bemoaning the fact that it is too difficult to clip certain dog breeds. And then they wonder how the professional groomer’s clippers seem to glide through the same coat with such ease.  Usually, upon further investigation, one finds that a cheaper supermarket clipper version is the culprit.

Do you have a dog breed that needs clipping every month or so? it is hard to beat that professional looking hairstyle when you pick up your pooch from the groomers.

Grooming is essential for Poodles and, because they can require a clipping every 6 to 8 weeks, it is important to have the appropriate grooming tools, tools that are up to the job.

Now of course, we need to consider the type of coat that your pooch is sporting. Dogs can have double coats or single layer coats. The Poodle falls into the latter category. So there is no need to deal with that under layer coat that is typical of the doable-coated breeds. This explains why shedding is minimal with Poodle breeds.

it can also explain why people who are highly sensitive to dog hair often choose this breed. Whilst shedding is minimal compared to other dog breeds, matting can be a concern

Your Poodle, unless it is a mix, probably belongs to one of these categories:

  • Miniature Poodle
  • Toy Poodle

So, what are the best dog clippers for Poodles?

The answer to this question depends on you and your dog’s requirements.
