The Best Clippers for Dog Grooming

July 2, 2019

There are a lot of factors that go into determining which type of dog clipper blades you should purchase for your grooming service or simply for at-home use. You need to consider their durability, how much maintenance (particularly sharpening) you need to perform on a regular basis, the types of dog fur they’re ideal for cutting, whether you’re in need of something cordless or corded, and the overall value and price of the clippers relative to your budget. Everyone will have varying needs, of course, but occasionally we get asked by our clients about the specific types of dog clippers we recommend.

With this in mind, here are just a few examples of some of the best-quality dog clipper blades we work on, based on their durability, versatility, price and ease of use.

Andis UltraEdge AC Super 2-Speed Clipper

The UltraEdge is one of the most popular Andis clippers in San Diego, CA. The company makes a number of very high-quality dog clippers. The clipper achieves up to 4,200 strokes per minute, which makes it a lot easier for you to perform some very fine, detailed work when grooming your dog. It also runs very quiet, which is especially helpful when working with dogs that might be a little nervous around a trimmer.

The clipper really stands out when compared to AG clippers—it’s 50 percent faster than standard AG clippers, and 25 percent faster than two-speed AG clippers. The clipper also doesn’t require any oiling or greasing of its internal parts, making it a great low-maintenance option for people who don’t want to have to spend a whole lot of time keeping their clippers in good condition.

Oster Turbo A5 2-Speed Clipper

The Turbo A5 from Oster features a turbo-powered motor that generates plenty of strokes per minute to give you more efficient cutting. It delivers 45 watts of power, which also allows for smoother, faster cutting actions while still being able to deliver a wider blade sweep. This means you’re able to cut over some larger areas more quickly, which is especially helpful for large dogs with lots of fur. It’s compatible with a wide variety of blades and other grooming tools.

Andis Pulse ZR Lithium 5-Speed Cordless Clipper

This is one of the industry standards, and you’ll find it in just about any grooming shop around the country. These clippers were designed for everyday use in a professional setting, and you can tell, because they were designed to be comfortable and easy to control with their anti-slip housing. The clippers run for two hours, and have a shorter charge time than many of the other similar, competing clippers you’d find on the market. Each set of clippers comes with a detachable #10 CeramicEdge blade, as well as a charging stand, blade oil and a durable hard case.

Double K Groomer’s Edge Hip-Mounted Variable Speed Clipper

This clipper easily cuts through thick, dense fur, even when it’s dirty. It provides five times the power of standard clippers, and has variable speed control adjustments ranging from 100 to 4,500 RPMs. Its 9,000 strokes per minute is the biggest range you’ll find in its class. Cable length is six feet to accommodate a longer reach.
