The best thing about cordless dog clippers is the ability to move about and they remove the potential hazard of trailing wires – not just from tripping over but also removing your dogs temptation to bite and chew the cord.

However, you need to be careful not to forgo quality for ease of use and eradicating wires shouldn’t necessarily be the only thing on your list, you still need to take into account;

  • Brand
  • Blade Quality
  • Ergonomics
  • Battery Life
  • Cutting Speeds

Ultimately the most important thing to consider is how your pet pooch feels and how your pet pooch looks after their groom!

What dog clippers do professionals use?

This is a great question and one we get asked regularly. We have made up our list to provide both professional grade and those suitable for home use.

One of the most important factors for professional dog grooming will be the blade. When cutting lots of hair, the blade has to be the best quality possible.

Price is also less of a concern for those that have a job grooming, they will get their monies worth almost immediately. Professionals also use good grooming practice and often combine scissors in their repertoire.

Best Cordless Dog Clippers Roundup

Factors to consider when choosing pet & dog clippers.

1. Cordless dog clippers

Cordless dog clippers were introduced to replace the cable clippers to offer more comfort, flexibility and another option. They use a rechargeable battery which substitutes the need for the power cable.

The drawback of cordless are that they have limited charge time. A charge of 30% or less can affect your finish.

2. Ergonomics

A cordless shaver tends to be larger and heavier than their corded counterpart option, due to large battery and motor power packs being attached. The issue of weight makes the work harder and heavier on the groomers wrist, especially if you have to work on several dogs. Rechargeable shavers are more suited for personal dog grooming needs.

The other problem is that a set of battery based are louder and vibrate more. However, it is still possible for a groomer to have the two types of animal clippers. Rechargeable ones can be used for puppies and calmer dogs, that require less intricacy with less needs.

Low noise is also very important – too much noise can make your dog nervous and make grooming that little bit more difficult, so if you’re dog is nervous, make sure low noise clippers are at the top of your wish list!

3. Blades

Blades are the heart of the whole grooming and clippers process. They are designed to fit in a given set of clippers. When making your order, ensure what you requested will fit in your set of animal clippers.

Also, ensure the blades you are buying are of your required length. The length determines the size of the hair left on the skin. Fortunately, all this information is readily available before you make your purchase.

Finally, ensure your blades come with an attachment comb. This additional device enables you to groom your dog at different hair grades, giving you a variety of cuts. Remember variety is the spice of life!

Choose the right material of your blade to get the best dog clippers for you. Depending on the nature of your cut, you can use the ceramic disposable ones or the aluminium variety that are durable.

Keep reading to find out more about each of the entries in our top 10 (literally whittled down from 100’s of products) and find out what are the very best dog grooming clippers.

OUR RATING

If you’ve had pets and especially dogs for a while, you’ll most likely be aware of Andis, they are synonymous with high quality pet and dog products and for Doggy Planet, you simply do not get a better manufacturer of dog clippers than Andis.

Anyway, onto our top pick. These cordless dog clippers are the only set of clippers on this list to potentially actually out-do their mains powered counterpart, they could even be better than the Andis AGC 2 Speed Dog Clippers.

So, what is it exactly that we love….? EVERYHTING!!

They’re light, ergonomic, they charge quickly and last for hours. The detachable blades are a thing of beauty and the 5 adjustable speeds are a fantastic addition.

If you love your dog(s), get these today!

Oster Pro 3000i Pet Cordless Clipper
  • Lightweight, cordless clipper
  • Powerful, single speed, 3000 strokes per minute
  • Lithium-ion battery providing 2 hours of clipping time
  • Slim, ergonomic design
  • Can use all a5 detachable blades

Last update on 2020-11-21 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

One of the biggest selling points of these wonderful clippers is the fact it’s compatible with A5 detachable blades making it an extremely versatile and worthwhile choice.

The price is a little on the heavy side as is the weight of these bad boys – coming in at almost double the weight of every other clipper on this list at slightly over 1kg.

The great news is that although they’re quite heavy, there’s no pain or ache in your hands and wrist due to their wonderfully ergonomic design. They’re also incredibly quiet and even for the most nervous of dogs that we’ve used them on, they’ve been absolutely brilliant and each dog relaxed.

The Wahl SS Pro grooming kit of professional dog clippers are a quiet, lot’s of power pet grooming kit and clipper with a high capacity that can be used on any coat (even  thick hair) and breed of dog.

They are easy to handle and gentle on your hands leaving you no pain on your wrist, hands or fingers.

The cutting length of these professional dog clippers are standardised to 0.7mm though this figure can be adjusted to 3mm, 10mm or 16mm with the aid of the attachment comb guides (and excellent clipper blades as standard) that ship with these grooming clippers.

They’re also lightweight meaning hand fatigue is kept to a minimum. A huge advantage for both you and your pet.

These could have easily been our top choice – they’re that good. The lack of choice with regards to colours available are what stopped these dog clippers from being our top pick, other than the Andis 2 speed, these are way ahead of the rest of the pack with regards to your needs. They even ship with a cleaning brush making them fantastic for home use. Everything other than a carry case has been covered.

Ideal for hair of all thickness and breeds. Combine these clippers with scissors and you have the perfect grooming kit for groomers.
