For long-haired dogs, great clippers can make a world of difference. Before using any clippers for your long-haired dog, consider using a professional-style clipper, as they tend to be more powerful, safer and convenient than the cheap ones. Since professional clippers provide various accessories, you can choose your preferred cutting blades for your dog’s specific coat type. Dog clippers for a long-haired dog typically feature a cutting blade, which is powered by a motor. Many motors are offered in single- and two-speed models.
