Hi everyone...ok so heres the deal. I groom my own dogs...well I try to...I have been doing it a couple years and still need lots of help and practice...but my main question is what kind pf shears should I buy? I mean like brand and any special spec's..I have been told to buy a "good pair" and to spend quite a bit of money on them but thats it.....
the other question I have is what kind of clippers do you all like best?
Thanks for your help! Appreciated!

I know this is old, but I like andis clippers and Kenchii shears, I am not sure about their lower end shears, the pair I have was close to $500. I don't think they have any under $200

I really like my Andis clippers, and I found cheapish shears on amazon. I bought curved shears, and I think I spent $20-ish on them.
