JMM--Do you like the clippers you have?* Do you have any complaints with it?

My original clippers were Oster A5 two speeds. I've also handled Wahl's and other Oster models. I finally bought these Andis a few years ago. I LOVE these Andis over any of the others I have tried. They are much lighter and easier to handle. The Andis AG or AGC corded clippers (single speed is fine) are what I recommend.

There are a few nice cordless models, but if you groom more than just one pet or something with a tougher coat than a Maltese, I wouldn't spend the money on them. A corded clipper will last a lot longer and be easier to use with multiple uses.

Cool. I'm thinking of getting one since I have 2 maltese. I was wondering if you use Andis combs or universal ones? Does it even matter?

Thanks again for all of your help! I really appreciate this!!!! I LOVE SM!

I finally received the clippers. Now all I have to do is find combs and find time (stupid chemistry).

Does it matter how the teeth on the combs are? Or are there one made for dogs specifically that I need to get?

I've gotten most of my combs at Sally's. I get the "universal combs". You can buy them in 1/4 inch increments up to 1&1/4 inches. They're the exact same thing as the ones sold in pet catalogues. If you want the longer combs, like 2" and 3" size, you'll have to order them from Ryans or another pet catalogue.

Lady'smom-Thanks Cloud is so stinky! I can't wait to give him a bath! P Poor baby, his matting is horrible. It hasnt gotten this bad since his adult hair (is that what you call it?) came out. He's sooooooo cute with long hair, but I can't take the mats anymore! Hope I can do half as well as JMM.

I don't keep Brinkley in a long coat usually, although I am trying to grow it out right now. It is the longest that it has been on his body-except for when I brought him home. Anyway, I don't know that I can describe how I do his feet. I trim his body and legs first to the length I want. I don't like the legs cut toooo short...but when I am trying to shape the feet, I use the beard/mustache trimmer that I use for his pads. I turn the foot over as if I am doing the pads and somehow lay my hand under it...and sorda push the pad flat against my hand...then with the other hand I trim the hairs from the top of the foot that I can see into a rounded shape. (does that make ANY sense at all? ) This seems to work great for me. I am not a fan of the very short poodle looking feet. This keeps his feet fluffy-but yet they are shaped. I would think the same process would work, no matter the length of the coat. I tried shaping/trimming from the top of the foot, and it didn't work as well for me as turning it over did. -_- I am definitely a "taught myself amateur" ! I am sure JMM will have more pro advice... but maybe I could help some?!

You have to scissor the feet in layers.

I hold the hair back and trim the first layer a little shorter than what I want. Each consecutive layer will be a slight bit longer. Since I trim Mikey's coat up off the ground, I usually trim his body about even with his feet. Otherwise I would leave his feet a bit longer than I normally do. They should be rounded bells. I clip the hair between the pads.
