Anyone out there know about dog grooming? Specifically with trimmers. I am thinking of purchasing equipment so I could do it myself. I have cut human hair before, including my own and my sons. One thought I had was buying the Oster classic model and purchase different blades (one for dogs and the other for humans) is this even possible?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi Nef:

I have a couple dogs but other then brushing them and the occasional bath I've never bothered w/ their coats. What's the reason for cutting back their coats? If it's to keep them cool in the summer you may be doing more harm then good. The hair isn't just to keep them warm, it's to keep them cool too (ie, people wearing robes in the desert to keep the Sun off their skin). When I take my dogs out in the Sun (running, beach, dog park) I soak them down w/ water to help keep them cool. Heck, this may not even apply to you. As far as I know maybe you want to shave them b/c they keep getting on the couch and shedding, lol.

Thanks for the info, the reason of clipping them is for merely maintenance. I have a cockapoo and pekapoo. One is a curly poodle, the other short haired. But her short hair gets really messy, and she does shed check em out!

Very cute pups, but I really don't have any advice on trimming them. Maybe brush the short-haired one everyday to keep him/her clean and untangled (you know, b/c we all have so much free time to do that everyday, lol).

Get a good trimmer. One with a vac attached. That keeps the fur from flying. Get a good one. I wasted money on a cheap one an the blade went dull.
