Hello, I have been researching the best clippers to purchase for my toy poodle. I am going to try my best to groom her at home. My current groomer has retired 😔.
Would the Wahl motion lithium ion trimmer be the best one to purchase? Any help or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much ☺

Look on Ren's in Canada. And probably the Bravura with metal combs, rather than a trimmer. A bravura isn't strong enough for my standard's coat, but would probably be good enough for a toy.

For a beginner and non-professional, I find the Wahl Arco or Bravura with their 5-in-1 blades are the best. That’s all you’ll need to do the whole dog, with metal combs if you want a better finish.

The Bravura is more expensive than the Arco and honestly, I have both and I don’t see much difference between the two. I would get whatever one suits your budget most.

I have the Wahl Motion for my two boys. I liked it for the attached grip handle which I really use and the "stated" double battery charge cycle life.
Otherwise, it's basically the same as the Wahl Bravura. And Yes to the metal combs!

from Amazon US (ignore the Arco Vet model - it's not a 5 in 1 blade)
