My dog is extremely anxious and so the poor thing starts shaking badly and hanging on to me or my husband when we try to hand her to the groomer. I decided that I would get a trimmer and do it myself. This one is cordless so no need to be messing with tangled cables or worrying about having a plug nearby. It used only 2 AA batteries and so far it seems to do very well with battery life. But the big factor for me is that one thing I noticed when she was getting groomed is that the loud noise disturbs her, so I was really hoping this one would be quiet and GLADLY it is! I start by loving on her, and I let her check the trimmer before starting using it on her so that she felt familiar with it as she is with me, and it was A LOT easier than I expected I would be! I am very happy that I can groom her myself now and save her from a bad anxiety day! Highly recommended!
