Which size comb do you use for best results (teddy bear cut)I've just got back from the day grooming course at Merrist Wood College. A fantastic, if exhausting day. I have never known 5 hours go past so quickly.
Here is a link to the clippers that the college use and recommend. I got these for my Birthday present this year. They're not cheap but quite honestly I think you get what you pay for. These clippers went like a hot knife through butter. Amazing.
You will need to buy a set of comb attachments too.
Right, now to update my thread and reveal how it all went!
Donna, on the grooming course I used a number 6 for Rufus's body and a number 8 for his legs. In this particular box of combs, number 8 is the largest.Which size comb do you use for best results (teddy bear cut)
As long as you have the comb attachment I don't think you can go wrong (don't you hate it when people say that?!!). Give Teddy a really good brush so that his coat is almost standing on end and start with the biggest size comb and work in the direction of his coat ie from neck to tail. You can do a brush stroke the opposite way - tail to neck inbetween each clipper run. Hope that makes sense. Don't forget the before and after photos!!Andis clippers arrived today - they are beautifully quiet. Feeling a bit apprehensive about using them without professional supervision but I expect the first time will be the worst - at least I hope so for Teddy's sake.)
