Discount Dog Grooming Tools For Happy Dogs

Updated on March 14, 2018

Dog Grooming Clippers

When it comes to grooming your dog at home, one of the biggest questions that dog owners have is, "Should I use electric dog grooming clippers or dog grooming scissors?" The answer is simple, BOTH may be necessary.

Both grooming tools have their pros and cons but if you are serious about grooming your dog at home, you will need to consider buying several dog grooming tools. So whenever you can find them at a discount it will save you money and you will have a happy dog!

If you are truly looking for a great discount on grooming tools, the best places to look are Amazon and Ebay. They have a great variety to choose from and with Amazon offering free shipping on many of their items and Ebay's auction prices, you will find you have an excellent selection of quaility tools to chose from.

Thinning Shears

Thinning shears basically look like grooming scissors but they are used more to that thin or shape your dog's fur without changing the shape or style. They are the Ideal grooming tool for thick or curly fur.

They also resemble combs but are actually made up of two jagged blades. Thinning shears are designed to cut some of the dog's fur while allowing some fur to rest between the gaps of the jagged blades.

This grooming tool must be used with care as you can end up with a mess if you have never used them before. If you are using thinning shears, you should make the cuts in the middle of the hair and try to avoid cutting too close to the roots.

The shears have a variety of different styles when it comes to the number of teeth of the blades which determines the amount of fur that gets removed. Shears with less teeth remove more fur and vice-versa.

They are usually blunt tipped and are available with curved blades, making them safe to use in the hard to reach or sensitive areas like the eyes, ears, anus, etc.

Nail Trimmers for Your Dog

If you clip your dog's nails at home, you need to make sure you have a good set of dog grooming nail trimmers. You don't want to skimp on the quality of the nail trimmers but you can still find them at a discount.

Depending on what breed of dog you own will determine what type of nail trimmers you will need. Normally a dog's nails need to be trimmed abut every 3 to 4 weeks and once you have established a good grooming relationship with your pet, it will become very easy.

I have found that on Amazon, you can find a lot of great information with the product descriptions and customer reviews. They have a variety of discount dog grooming nail trimmers for you to choose from and many offer free shipping.

Depending on the breed of dog you own, you may find it is necessary to purchase more than one size and type of dog grooming scissors.

If you have or are starting a mobile dog grooming service, you will most definetly need more than one set as well as several other dog grooming tools.

Whether you need one or twenty, finding quality tools at a discount can really save you money and frustration in the long run.

eBay is a great place to start for discounts but you may have to look further for more of a variety on sizes and types of dog grooming scissors.

If so, Amazon has a huge selection with many being reviewed so you know just what you are getting. It is really a great way to research before you buy.

As you are going down the list of tools you need, whether you are starting your own grooming business or just grooming your pet at home, one of the most important tools you need is a table to use while you are grooming your pet.

A grooming table really is the base for all other grooming tools you will be using. Not only will they make the whole process easier but it will also keep you and your pet safe. If you are a pro or thinking about starting, it will be essential to buy a dog grooming table. Finding the best deals then becomes of utmost importance.

There are a variety of styles and features available when it comes to dog grooming tables. It will really depend on how and where you will be using it as well as the size of your pet. There are both stationary and portable dog grooming tables, and they are available in various price ranges.

Do your homework before you make this purchase and it will pay off in the long run. Getting a good quality dog grooming table is a good investment and will last you a long time.

Dog Grooming Dryers

When it comes to grooming your dog, besides knowing how to bathe your dog, it is very important to know how to dry your pet properly.

Drying your dog's hair with a dog grooming dryer after bathing is essential not only to keep you pet from getting sick but also because of the damage it can cause to their fur. If you don't dry your dog after a bath, their fur can become tangled, matted and end up with dirt stuck all over their wet fur. That being said, it may also depend on what type of dog you have as to how important investing in a speciality tool will be.

You need to be aware that using a regular hair dryer can result in burning your pet. This does not mean you have to buy an expensive dog grooming dryer but you do need one that is specifically designed for grooming pets.

There are some great selections on Amazon and many of them offer free shipping, saving you even more money.

If you are a pro or just starting a dog grooming business, you may need to invest in a more expensive dryer. No need to worry, you can still find deals and discounts on Amazon that can meet your needs as a pro.
