Default What grooming equipment to buy?

I'm looking to be able to cut my girl's hair myself for two reasons: 1. Grooming is expensive and 2. Winry will not sit still for groomers! She's good about being brushed by me, so I don't know if it's just that strangers are handling her. I'm hoping she'll do better for me. But I am not sure what brands are good and all the tools I'll need.

Equipment is expensive as well. You will need clippers, blades, scissors, brushes, nail clippers or grinder. All sorts of stuff lol

Once you make the initial investment, it isn't so bad. I have Andis clippers and a couple of #10 blades, a toe blade, and one size #15. The drier is Andis Comfort 1875. I also invested in a good pair of long scissors, a blunt edge (for around the eyes) and a small rechargeable Wahl clipper for her feet. I still am chicken about cutting her body too short and getting it uneven, so send her to a groomer for that about every 8 weeks. But in between I do her face, feet and tail and nails. Several people on the forum recommended Groomers Edge all in one shampoo/conditioner (15 to 1 dilution) and it is really good so now I use that for baths. I do the first wash with an overall mild shampoo, then one with the Groomers Edge. It spares Callie the extra rinse down since you don't need conditioner.

I like my Andis AG 2speed I like Oster and Geib blades. You will need a decent pair of scissors.. I started out with a curve and straight pair of Wolff shears ($25 ea).. They cut clean hair pretty darn good for the price, are light, and blunt edged. You can upgrade later. A dryer, grooming table would also be good. Shampoo of course.. Ear powder and hemostats.. Nail trimmer or grinder.. Comb and brush of course
