Having the right tools always makes a job so much easier. I know this and yet I was cutting my dogs' hair with our scissors. So when i was able to review this set I was very excited.. The set has one straight pair, one thinning pair, and one curved pair so there is a pair for every job.
I have two Shih Tzus and they have TONS of hair, I mean tons . Neither of them want to be PrimaDonnas with clean long beautiful flowing hair. They would rather be nasty and roll in what ever stinky spot they can find. That is NOT what I wanted in a dog that is why I have ShihTzus I'm thinking how cute the little mops would be running around. But you take what you get and work with it so my babies fur stays very short.
We were using a groomer but that can get very costly so I decided give it a try myself. Like I mentioned I was using our scissors and there is something terrifying about going at a dog's eye with a sharp pair of scissors.My dogs never kept still and when I was nervous they felt it and became uncomfortable too. Then the job got stressful and we both were aggravated for nothing because I can't finish.
With these I was very surprised how comfortable I felt cutting my dog's face. I used the curved pair. It was so easy to go around his eyes and cut those stubborn hairs that usually irritate him. He flinched a couple of times but he let me keep cutting. Even my blind dog didn't mind me cutting his eyelashes. I was done in no time. Then I used the thinning scissors for his beard and head. Those are so easy to use and they are blunt so I wasn't afraid of them either. Then the regular cutting pair doesn't have an extremely long sharp tip so those aren't any danger either.
The handles are easy to grip and the finger holes are very comfortable to hold. They also change positions easily and comfortably. The price of these is steal too. That's less than half of what I pay every 6 weeks to have my dogs trimmed. I would recommend these for anyone that grooms a dog or wants to try grooming their dog.
I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion but the opinion expressed is all my own.
