Confused between blades and snap on combs and Oster vs Andis. I really need some guidance. I also have three other toys, so if I could use the clippers on them that would be a bonus. I have an old super duck dryer that I've been using with all of them.
I need your expertise before I do anything.
Thanks in advance!!!!

Lots of us love our Wahl Bravura clipper. (Or the less powerful version, the Arco SE.) You only have to buy one blade, as its adjustable from a 9 to a 40 blade. But for tpoos, you may need some type of trimmer or extra small clipper for doing poodle feet. Im not a pro groomer, maybe one of them can chime in.

For snap-on combs, everyone seems to agree that metal ones work much better than plastic ones.

Well this was timely information. I was looking for martingale collars for my crew and they are very inexpensive at Pet Edge. I was wondering if they charged extra for shipping to Canada. Thanks.

Aha!! Another CDN to pool our orders with!! TLP...the prices on their collars and leads for puppies going on to their new homes is less than half of the next cheapest place. If you are ordering something in the future, let us know and we will split shipping with you.

I am looking to order the clippers and blades, and I really want a drying unit-is anything under 200$ on that website a "hot deal" or even useful for drying a standard? I like the idea of cage drying!

Im not a pro groomer, but my understanding is that cage drying doesnt work for poodles because the hair will dry curly. You need to brush/style it while you dry it so it will be as straight as possible. Basically you want the hair straight and sticking straight out from the dog, not laying down, as if he put his paw in a light socket. By having the hair sticking straight out like that, you can scissor/clip all the hairs in a given area to the same length, which reduces matting and gives that "plush" look. If the hairs are curly, there is no way to do a proper groom, as all the hairs will be cut to different lengths.

I take it you are looking to get into grooming your dogs and are a beginner? My advice would be to put the biggest focus on getting an excellent dryer, followed by the clippers, followed by the shears. Think how much you'll appreciate having a dog dry in one hour instead of two!

Well I just did a ton of dyer research, but ended up getting a dryer beyond the price range you mentioned. (I got the Chris Christensen Kool Dry - $375).

I liked the specs on the "B-Air Bear Power Dryer II. Its $189 at PetEdge. But when I read reviews I noticed a lot of people reported them dying early deaths.

Air Force makes a dryer in your price range that should have power comparable to what I got (4 horsepower motor) and is variable speed too. The difference would be that the Air Force dryers are LOUD.

I liked the specs on the "B-Air Bear Power Dryer II. Its $189 at PetEdge. But when I read reviews I noticed a lot of people reported them dying early deaths.

[QUOTE]

I have the B-Air II. It is powerful enough for you to do your boy in a fairly short amount of time. But Jacamar is correct that it is not sturdy and does not last. I am very unhappy with their warranty and standing behind their products. The hose is made of a rigid plastic which most of the other dryers are not. Other dryer hoses bend more easily and are sturdier. I was using the B-Air at dog shows this past summer to brush out and it started to make a super ear shattering high pitched screech when I started it. Once it warmed up it stopped. I turned out to be the hose. I googled it and it appeared to be a very common problem with this dryer. I contacted B-air about the problem and they would not send me a new hose because it is only covered by a 1 year warranty. I told the spokesman that his dryer was not going to be selling it self when I started it at future dog shows, but he would not replace the hose. I thought that, seeing as it is a known problem, it would have been good customer service to replace the hose.


I also have the small quick draw version of the metro dryer. This is the first dryer I purchased and it still works wonderfully. It is not enough powerful enough for a standard though (So Jacamar is also right that you should get the best first, because you will end up spending more money in the long run.)

Anyway, MaryLynn I finally ended up getting the k911 dryer. It is great. But I have multiple dogs. I would think one of the metro dryers would work well for you.

You should keep in mind that when you order from Pet Edge you will be paying additonal costs for purchasing from Canada, Shipping Costs, Duty and Brokerage Fees. You can email Pet Edge and ask them to calculate what the additional costs will amount to before you make your purchase. Then you can compare to costs of the same items in Canada.

Have you tried Ren's Pets? You can order online. Or if you feel like taking a road trip they have a new store in Guelph on Brock Road, just off the 401. And it is located right next to the warehouse so they usually have most things in stock.

I remember the squeal...YIKES!! Glad you got your new dryer and are happy.

I used my new Metro 4 hp stand dryer yesterday. Holy cow...there was mist blowing all over the room. Huge difference for me. I had bought an Oster stand dryer and it truly sucked, so I took it back and ordered this one and am delighted.

Oh that's not that far really maybe I will take a car trip! You're right, probably better to order one from Ren's and skip out on duty and shipping charges! Totally worth it for the clipper and blade sale though I think.
