Some dogs have long silky coats – Yorkshire Terriers and Maltese for example – and these need special care. They have little protective undercoat so you need to be very gentle when grooming, particularly as they need daily brushing and combing. Other breeds have long but dense coats, such as Collies, and these just need twice weekly brushing with a pin-brush and combing with a wide-toothed comb. Excess hair will need to be trimmed once a month. Golden Retrievers and others with less dense hair need less grooming – weekly brushing and combing and a twice yearly trim for legs and between the toes. Other breeds require regular – often weekly or even twice weekly – professional trimming and clipping. Poodles and Bichon Frise for example need a lot of grooming so you need to get your dog accustomed to these regular trips to the groomers from when he is a tiny puppy. Unless you are actually trained to do this clipping don't attempt it yourself – leave it to the professionals.
When you first start out using dog grooming clippers, you don't want your expectations to be too high. Chances are you'll be giving your dog a simple, practical cut rather than styling him like a professional would. Then again, if you do a beautiful job first time out, maybe you should consider a career change! Most people who groom their dogs themselves accept that they're trying to make their dog clean and comfortable, not ready for the show ring. But even if you only use dog grooming clippers to maintain your dog's hair and send him to the groomer every six months or so for a complete workover, you can save hundreds of dollars.
All-breed dog grooming is typically for professionals only. Normal dog owners are interested mainly about methods to groom their own animal's breed, and that is totally natural. But classes and certifications are required to acquire qualification for all-breed dog grooming. Through the years, many schools have been founded and accreditation can now be obtained on the web also, as part of long-distance certification programs. Should you opt for this alternative, make sure that the the instructor has a license for organizing lessons.
