I am trying to shave down my newfies and cannot get through their coat. What size blade is best to use? I bought Andis clippers. They are rescues and my vet recommended they be shaved because their coats are so matted and in such poor condition.

I have an electric Oster. When I snap on a comb, it doesn't seem to want to cut. What am I doing wrong? Thank you...

As a professional groomer, I think it is important to let the public know that there is a differance between "Clipper Burn" and "Razor Burn". Most well trained "stylists" know their equipment, and how long it takes for their blades to heat up, and when to spray or change
them.
However I have expirienced animals who simply cannot have areas shaved with a blade exceeding a #10. I rescued a poodle who has this issue and didnot understand why he had red skin with sores when I used a fresh blade only on his
face.
Many humans get "razor burns" when they shave the sensitive skin under their arms, but the razor they use in the shower never heats up!

I belive that is has to do with the hair being too short and the skin being irritated at the same
time.
So please don't accuse your groomer of being carless, before ruling out a personal skin irritation.
