That’s why you need to find the best dog clippers for cocker spaniels.

Hey, if you give him an uneven cut the first time around, he’ll forgive you and with practice, you’ll get better and better! Read on to learn more about grooming a cocker spaniel properly and find out what our 4 top picks for the best dog clippers for cocker spaniels are!
Grooming is important for many breeds of dog but it’s especially important for Cocker Spaniels. Their fur can get very long and if it’s not trimmed and taken care of, it will get matted and tangled with odor making your dog look like a ragged stray.
Luckily, most cocker spaniels love getting groomed so this is a great opportunity to bond with your dog.
If you don’t get in the habit of grooming your cocker spaniel yourself, you are recommended to take him to a professional groomer every 6 to 8 weeks. This can get expensive or at least, it’s an expense that you can easily cut out of your budget by doing the grooming yourself.
If you have a show dog, you’ll want to leave all grooming in the hands of a professional but otherwise, there’s no reason you can’t manage all of this yourself. Your dog will love the quality time you spend together and you will love the beautiful, shiny coat that makes him that much more soft and adorable.
With all these tips in mind, all that’s left is for you to do your research and find out which dog clipper is the best choice for you.
This is one of our favorites for at-home use because it’s surprisingly powerful but also more lightweight than most powerful clippers. Your wrists will appreciate this after a long session of dog fur trimming. They are also quiet enough to use on sensitive or nervous pets and does not heat up as quickly as other clippers tend to.
Oster is one of the most widely used brands among professional groomers. It has been around for decades and always makes reliable, durable products. This particular clipper has been more or less the same for decades because it is just that effective and reliable. It’s a great price for its lifespan but watch out for overheating if you have more than one dog to groom.
This is a heavy duty, powerful dog clipper that is built to be sturdy and long lasting. It is absolutely perfect for larger dogs and particularly tough, long hair. Plus, for all their power, they are still super quiet. As it can heat up, we recommend you get the ceramic blades if you expect to use it for more than 20 minutes at a time. Ceramic will heat up less quickly than the steel blades this comes with.
This is another reliable Oster product but it’s more lightweight than the others. It’s got the perfect shape to fit comfortably in your hand but it’s not quite as durable and long lasting as the Oster Turbo. So it’s great for home use with just one dog but if you are planning to groom more frequently, spring for a more durable model.
All four of these are great for grooming your cocker spaniel. Be sure to read reviews by other owners, read their experience and let it be your guide when you make decision which one to choose.
