Here's some dogs I do with the 5/8" blade (a mere 1/8" shorter than the 3/4" blade)
I have a few questions. 1) I have two dogs, a 60 lb lab mix with long hair and super dense undercoat and gets a lot of matting, and a 50 lb border collie mix with long hair. I have tried some of the cheaper models of clippers and have been unsatisfied with the choppy cut of the hair and them overheating so badly that my dogs whine and I have to stop and wait an hour for them to cool off. So I am looking at investing in a good pair of clippers. A few I have been looking at (and feel free to suggest others you think would be better), are the Oster A5, Andis AGC 22360, Andis Ultra Edge AGC 22465, and the Andis 22215 2-Speed (although on amazon's description it says they are for small dogs). My dogs get scared by noisy clippers. So any advice would be recommended. 2) I see there are a few options on the blades: UltraEdge, standard, CeramicEdge, CryogenX and CryogenX Elite. Could you fill me in on the differences? 3) Are those cool lubes they sell worth the money? 4) Which combs would you recommend (if any)? 5) Last question... do you know where (what country) Oster and Andis manufacture their clippers? You're help is MUCH appreciated!
I am looking to buy an Andis for our Goldendoodle. He has a very thick, curly coat. Would it be better to have the 22360 for the faster blade speed or the ones you mentioned above with slower blade speed? I can see that grooming Boomer is going to take a LONG time and I am worried about the blades/clipper getting too hot as I've read in most of the forums and wonder if the slower blade speed would help or if it would just be too slow for his thick coat. Also, what do you think about the clip on combs for someone just starting to groom their dog...help or hindrance?

Length of hair left when cutting against the natural lie of the coat, or on a dog with off-standing coat, such as a Poodle or Bichon Frise. Cutting with the grain of the coat on most breeds leaves it one blade length longer. For instance, a #7 blade leaves approximately 1/8" hair when going against, but will leave approximately 1/4" when going with the lie. The cut indicates the uniform length of hair which will be left when you use the designated blade. Higher blade numbers indicate shorter hair length ie: A #4 blade leaves 3/8 inch of hair, and a #40 leaves only 1/100 of an inch. For lengths longer than 5/8", use a blade guard or clipper blade comb.Alfred Dobalo (October 15, 1955 – June 14, 2013), best known by his Al Green, was an American who performed in , , and under a variety of gimmicks, including Rage one half of the team The Wrecking Crew with (Marc Laurinaitis), Blade one half of the Master Blasters with (Kevin Nash) and the Dog in at the turn of the millennium.In looking at my options I'm thinking a two-speed clipper would be better for a double-coated dog? I'm also wondering about the importance of "strokes per minute." I looked at two Andis clippers similarly priced with strokes per minute at 2600-3400. Then there were two others (Ultra Edge and Super 2) that were 3400-4400spm but they were about $20-30 more ($146). Is it worth the extra money to buy the higher spm with my Eskie? I read the faster blade, the smoother the finish, but I also read some reviews on Amazon about these higher spm models getting hot very quickly... so my head is spinning! I guess if I bought the less expensive model (Andis + AG) I could spend some of my savings on extra blades and cooling spray. :) Which reminds me, should I get any comb attachments or anything else?The 3-Blade Dog's Head Stockman is an elegant folder that utilizes reclaimed American Chestnut that has been expertly finished; buffed smooth and shiny to create masterpieces that walk the walk and talk the talk.
