Question
Hi Susan,
I have always taken my mini sheep dog mix to a groomer but cannot afford it any more. I am a hairdresser and feel I can shear my dog but was wondering about the best and most effective type of clipper to use. Can you suggest one?
Joanne

Answer
Hi Joanne,

I love the Andis clippers.  For that type of coat, you should get a Professional 2-speed clipper.
Included is a website to view all the clippers and blades you will need to go alone with your new clipper.

They have the greatest prices as well.

Hope this helps.
