Lightbulb Any Shaver Suggestions??

Hello everyone! I am looking to start light-grooming my Standard on my own. I am told he does great with the groomers and behaves very politely. I would like to start to learn to do touch-ups on my own! I have looked at some shavers online and found a few, but wanted to get some suggestions?

I plan on doing the hair under his paws/pads, his belly where he gets the most mats, and his face area like his chin! (I refuse to go around his eyes, I only trust the pros!)

If anyone has any tips or advice I would love to hear it! I want to be the best parent for my pup so staring when he is young I think would be best for him and I to grow comfortable sooner than later! Want to make sure I get a quality shaver

Thank you all in advanced!

PS: I looked on this forum for past questions on shavers and was unable to find any solid leads. So if this has been posted already i am sorry!! I do not mean to double post a question when someone has already asked!

To clip just those areas you would probably do fine with a Wahl Bravura. You can often find them on sale too.

Yes I have looked into these as well, have seen a couple discussions on them. I guess I was unsure of there were certain clippers for certain areas? Again I am very new on this grooming process and want to make sure I do not make any rookie mistakes!

I had the wahl bravura... to be honest i was kind of disappointed with it. It did 'last' 3 years but we had to change the blade out every 3-4 hair cuts or it would get dull. But the worst thing about them is if they get caught at all it the blade will fall off from the body and likely fall on the floor unless you have some quick hands to catch it! Mine also got very hot, very quickly and constantly had to use blade coolant.

I recently decided to invest in the KM10 and I love it! only down fall is i'll have to by other blades as it only comes with a 10 not like the bravura which was 5in1. But im happy it cant fly off anymore with every snag!

Dina if you use the "black diamond" blades on the bravura they don't get hot, but for a spoo I would not rely on them for all over body clipping I would use a good heavy duty Andis or Oster. For what the OP asked to be able to do though the Bravura is fine. Also all blades can be sharpened but some will need more often depending on the type of blade and the texture of the dog's coat.

I too thought id just do face, feet, bum too...but once you get a hang of it you'll want to do him all over!

Mine was $200 CDN at petsmart.

Hope you find what works for you

I've been using the Wahl Bravura with the metal comb set for FFT and (one time so far) a simple all over body puppy cut. I'm a newbie at grooming, and I find it very easy to use. Not sure whether I'll need something different later when Cleo's adult coat comes in.

Over 11 years of grooming my two I have picked up a lot of equipment but recently I have started just hand scissoring. It doesn't take that much more time and I always have to scissor some after clipping anyway. I just clip FFT with my Wahl and a #30 blade.
