Electric Dog Razors

Updated on June 3, 2008

Electric Dog Clippers

Dog clippers are great to have on hand whether for grooming or for emergencies. They tend to range from $100 to $200 for a decent pair. You may even consider just purchasing a pair of small men's clippers to have in case of small emergencies, but if you have a dog that you regularly shave or trim, you'll want to invest in a good pair of dog clippers.

If you plan on using electric razors to groom your dog, you need to make sure that you start working with the dog early on, otherwise, you may end up terrifying the dog later in life when you try to shave him with the razor.

There are a few quieter dog razors, but for the most part the majority of them have a decently loud buzz about them, which can start a dog that hasn't been properly socialized with electric razors.

Although, using a dog razor is relatively simple, if you have any problems you can usually ask a professional dog groomer for tips and help.

Andis Dog Razor

Andis is one of the top electric dog clipper brands. Their best dog razors include the UltraEdge and the AG clippers.

The UltraEdge clippers are 2-speed and runs at 4,400 strokes per minute; they have a 4 x 4 blade drive for 25% more blade torque. The UltraEdge clippers have built in vents and fans to prevent hair from clogging up the clippers. You don't have to oil or grease the blades, and you'll always get a close cut. These clippers have the widest range of blades available.

The AG clippers are, also, 2 speed clippers that work at 2,600 and 3,200 strokes per minute. These clippers work well for normal cuts and tend to take care of average grooming needs.

      Good hub. This is an important part of owning one of the dogs that continually need grooming. Not only for the good of the dogs wellbeing but ours as well. Shorter hair means cleaner and less smelly dog.

      I bought a set for $50 thinking they wouldnt be very good but so far we have done our 2 dogs 5 times and they are still going. So we were lucky. Thanks for sharing this info.
