With hundreds of different types of dog grooming scissors to choose from you’ll be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed - it's hard even for those with years of experience to find their best dog grooming scissors.

Once you have purchased a pair, I can’t stress enough the importance of making sure that the blades are cleaned with a suitable hygiene spray and carefully dried after each use. This will ensure they cut better, and last longer.
