If you have a dog like I do, that requires constant grooming, the Wahl Deluxe Pet Grooming Kit is a great investment.
My dog is a Maltese/Bichon Frise mix (Maltichon), and that breed is one in which their coat is constantly growing. I didn't realize this when I bought him, and the professional groomer's bills were quite a shock. They can run anywhere from $30 on up, and I was told my little guy needed to be groomed every month! Being on disability I can't afford that, but by now I love him too much to give him up. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and invested in the Wahl Deluxe Pet Grooming Kit.
I found it at Target for $59.99, which sounds expensive, but compared to the monthly grooming bills, it was a bargain. It comes in a hard plastic case and includes the quiet-running thumb-adjustable multi-cut clipper (quiet so as not to spook your dog - a great feature), 3 stainless steel guide combs, scissors, styling comb, slicker brush, cleaning brush, oil for clipper maintenance, and a GREAT 17-minute pet grooming video.
Invest in a $5 pair of nail clippers and you have everything the professional does. After watching the video, and a little trial and error, I'm now able to spruce up my dog whenever he needs it. It's just a matter of choosing the right guide. The worst that can happen is that you take off a little too much here and there - but believe me - your dog won't complain!
Wahl is the number one brand in people and pet clippers, and the Deluxe Pet Grooming Kit is a long-lasting, quality investment.
