Posted by Admin | 29 Sep
Grooming and grooming for dogs is a hobby of many owners, so they will do a lot of work by themselves, such as bathing, brushing, shearing, shaving and so on for dogs. To shave dogs, electric clippers are bound to be used, but some owners may see that the electric clippers used by dogs are similar to those used by humans, so for convenience, they will directly use electric clippers for dogs to shave their hair. , but after all, there is still a certain difference between the two, so try to use electric clippers for dogs.
It is actually quite convenient to buy such items now, and the easiest thing is to choose them online. If you are not sure about buying online, you can go to the pet store to buy it yourself. There may be a big difference in price between different quality electric clippers. Some clippers have fixed razor heads, while better ones are replaceable. We can replace the cutter head according to our needs to achieve the effect we want to see.
What are the problems with people using electric clippers:
1. Human hair is much thicker, harder and more brittle than dog hair. It can be clearly seen under a magnifying glass. Human pores only grow one hair, but most dogs grow 3-7 hairs per pore. A basic common sense is that soft hair or fibers are far more difficult to cut than thicker ones. For example, if you use ordinary scissors to cut cotton fibers, you will find that the cotton filaments will be stuck between the two scissors without breaking. A good pair of scissors will cut easily. Compared with our hair, the dog's coat is thicker and softer, so it is much more difficult to trim. In this case, shaving the dog's hair has certain requirements for the sharpness of the electric clipper.
2. In addition, the main difference between pet clippers and human hair clippers is the cutter head and motor. Generally speaking, the sharpness of pet clippers is higher than that of human clippers, and the horsepower is also greater than that of human clippers. The sharpness of the blade is related to the steel material, heat treatment and grinding accuracy. The selection, heat treatment and grinding accuracy of the pet blade, including the strength of the spring, are much higher than those of the human blade. To achieve these accuracy, the cost and The processing equipment and processing technology are much higher. Under normal circumstances, the price of a pair of pet cutter heads is much higher than the price of an ordinary person's electric shears; in addition, people must be more cooperative than dogs. Dogs will move around when shearing. Therefore, the safety of pet blades requires more steps to prevent dogs from moving around and accidentally cut; The power and power of the body motor of the clipper have corresponding requirements to drive the blade to cut the dog hair, otherwise the blade will be stuck due to the thick dog hair and cannot be operated.
