to have just for touching up the face in-between groomings? (I have to start somewhere. ;) )

Also while I'm at it, how about a table? Neither will get heavy usage as we just have one dog who's not going to be showed.

Thanks.

Get a Petedge catalog. They are here on the net. And will be cheaper than anywhere else. Pick up an Andis clipper they are the best and will last forever. You can use different blades which is what you want. I would not use human male trimmer clippers as they cut to close for someone not used to dog grooming or using clippers.

Andis had a clipper kit ithey sell. It is called the Andis Easy Clip clipper kit. It comes with a DVD guide, clipper 3 blades and 4 guide combes plus shear and carrying case. All this for $64. with a 1 year warrenty. Look it up on Petedge.com This is a real great deal for someone just grooming their own poodle.

Heather, This is one of the clippers that we own. It was actually an upgrade for us. We have 2 standards and 2 toys which we groom. These particular clippers are probably the ones that we use the most and we own and use 4 different ones. We really like them. The page that you posted to show the cost of the clippers is being worked on at the moment, so would not open page, so could not see the price of the clipper. I believe that we paid about $139 or $149 for this particulaar pair, but not really sure.

oops, it's $134.95 which I thought was really good. However, that's US$$, so for me it's about 20% more then that!! lol PLUS shipping, plus duty!! Sometimes I hate living in Canada! Makes online shopping very expensive!

I really do not think you would be sorry for purchasing this clipper. Sometimes if both my Hubby and I are both grooming different dogs at the same time, we will sometimes wait on this clipper for certain parts of the grooming, even though there really isn't anything wrong with our other clippers, we just seem to like this one better.

Breeder gave me a Wahl Moser and she's a professional groomer. She says it's the best for face, feet, tail. I can't wait to try it.

I bought a hydraulic table off ebay for under 200.00 swivel top. And I use the Wahl switchblade clippers love the feel of them in my hand . But they do heat up fast so you need lots of blades. For quick touch up I have a Wahl Arco cordless, that I also use for puppies it is very quiet.

LOVE the Wahl Arco!!!!!!!!!
Have two Osters...very heavy but very reliable. Use them on the Standards bodies. Even have a mini oster. Also two other cheaper rechargables. I always start puppies with the rechargables, less noise and vibration.

I like the curved shear for shaping . you did not say what size they were the ones I use are 10 inch . Thinning shears are more for blending I have never used them on my poos wore them out on the setters though :) . Straights are good for some things,,, some people are good shaping with them i personally am not. Chris Christensen is a good name what are they ?

Go for the scissors for sure they are expensive . Get the curved for shaping . You will love them once you get used to using them
