Dog Grooming Clippers For Owners on A Budget

By on March 17, 2017

No matter what kind of dog you have, whether a full pure bred or some sort of mix, you will need to groom them. If you want to avoid paying a professional, you need a solid dog clipper. You could go to a discount store and buy an off brand or unfamiliar brand dog grooming clipper for $15 to $20 or you can spend just a little more and get an outstanding clipper at a budget price.

We would recommend that if you need an “all round full service clipper” on a budget try the Wahl Professional Animal Deluxe U-Clip Pet Grooming Kit. This is a kit with a great clipper and 15 other pieces for less than $50. In many locations you can buy this kit for about $30.

In 1919 Leo J. Wahl invented and patented the world’s first electromagnetic hair clipper for people. In 1967 the company introduced the first cordless clipper to the world, having entered the animal clipper business the year before. Today Wahl is the leading producing of barber and salon tools and a growing player in the animal grooming environment. However all their products have always been used on dogs and the line made for humans is at times better for the dogs than the pet pro lines they also offer
