And that poses a lot of challenges with dogs whose hair needs to be trimmed to make sure that their skin is not infested with dog skin yeast.
Just to mention, dogs overall cleanliness will drop with age as they find it harder at times to clean themselves, especially on their back.
So the only way to get things moving on the cleanliness side of our dog, it meant that weekly dog showers had to be arranged to keep our Tess smelling nice while keeping dog skin yeast at bay.
Admittedly, neither of us was happy with having to give her showers regularly to clean her off, but there was not an option except for a visit to the only two local vets that will clip our dog who had a dog skin yeast infection at the time.
So, having set up almost a handful failed appointments, the message was clear, I needed a change of plan. That was when I decided to invest in the best dog clippers for matted hair.
Especially when the earliest of our appointment which was a month away, where when we went in, only to have them lose our dog hair clipping appointment.
So, instead of paying 60 quid for a one-time dog hair trim, I looked up online, for a perfect dog hair clipper for a do it yourself dog grooming weekend.
It’s amazing what you can do with Dog grooming video tutorials off youtube! Having watched some video’s, ordered these best hair clipping machines, I then embarked on behavioral change,followed the old grump around the house for about a week, intermittently turning the dog hair clipping machines on and off to get her used to the sound, and running the casing down her back to get use to the vibration.
At first, she was not pleased! or happy with me, but once he realized how much cooler he was, and how much easier it was to keep himself clean.
Well, now every time she hears the clippers come on, she eagerly runs and sits in front of me to get her a trim. No all clipping sessions go well, she is a lady with her own diva-ish mindset, so she does usually get bored about halfway through, but if I spread it out over a few days, we are all good.
Plus my other long-haired little fluff-ball loves it too, he likes to get shaved and then rub against everything, and press himself against the glass in the windows.
I know I have little freaks, but this has been a great investment for our family and a great way to bond with our dog. I now shave them each down a couple of times a year and can do sanitary upkeep all winter long without dragging the old one out into the cold weather.
All in all, if you have the patience, time, and a high level of trust with your dog, I think you will find that having the best clippers for dog hair is recommended. I don’t know about professional, but it worked great for out Tess.
