Hi Lacey: I was just wondering how close of a clip do you get with the conair? Does it get at cut at least down to an eight inch of hair. Does it have sturdy attachemnts that come with it. as I had mentioned before the remington mens one I have has a main clipper on it but it is for longer hair and the side attachment gets way down to the skin. I use it only around the nail and thats it. Let me know.

It clips shorter than an eighth of an inch but doesn't clip right down to the skin. It gives a nice clip to the face and feet. My dog is so petite that she needs something smaller like this rather than a big bulky clipper. I only use a big one when I clip down her body which isn't very often. It comes with one attachment that stays on nice. My husband uses his to trim his beard and hasn't had any problem with sturdiness. I haven't used the attachment for the dog though on the dog's clippers. I think the attachment is around an eighth to quarter of an inch or so.

Lacey, So you use the conair for the face and feet then what do you use for the body? Is the conair specifically made for animals? Were can i find these clippers at?

Lacey I was wondering if this is what you use. Could I use this clipper for both the face and body? This looks like what I need.

I am not sure if this will work well for the feet or not. When the button is pushed what does it do to change into a mustache trimmer. If it makes the blade narrower then it will work. That is why the mustache trimmer that I have works so well. The blade is narrower than the regular clipper that I have. Also the smallness of the whole clipper itself makes it nice and easy to use since it is so light. Also being cordless that keeps a cord from getting in your way. The ones I have were only $12 or so. So you wouldn't have to spend that much more to buy regular clippers and mustache trimmers separately. You don't have to buy animal clippers. They are just packaged differently. They all work the same as far as I know. I bought a Wahl clipper for her body that has attachments in different lengths. I bought both of them at Wal-Mart. I will try to find a link to them.

You could start off with something like this. Since you have a small dog it does not take as long. The only thing that might happen is that the motor and blade will heat. What you do is buy a can of coolant, they are usually nearby. Spray the blades and or turn it off and let it cool off. You will eventually want a more expensive one that can handle the length of time it needs to be to groom a dog. but it is a good starter. And it has that cool case too.

I have gone from using my big clipper to smaller narrow ones. I bought this one whal brand clipper that clips way to close and kept nicking her face and feet to don't use it anymore. That was a bad bad clipper. Never again. I had gone to a beauty supply store nearby and asked for blades. On the phone they said they had them, then they realized it was for my oster dog clipper . They proceeded to tell me that they were different from human used ones. I know for a fact that they sell the type with changeable blades(With different lengths) and the kind with the attachable combs for dogs as well as humans. I just was so bummed they did not have what I needed I did not bother tell school them on what they don't know. I prefer the detachable combs. I now take my blades to a person in the next city to sharpen my blades, the same person that does it for all the salons.

I use two the main Oster clipper, from in laws that used to use it on their schnauzer. It must be at least ten years old. I take it to have the blades sharpened when it seems needed. But there is also a place i can have it overhauled if and when I need. The only thing I really wish for is a rechargeable one. One that would hold a charge for a few hours at least. Or maybe those onse with the vacumm attached so no mess with hair. But I also use the mens rechargeable remington mustache beard trimmer. The main part is not usable for her feet or face but the side attachment gets all of the scraggly hairs around the nail bed and inbetween the toes. and she gets a very nice shade of orange polish with no hairs sticking into it.
