Trimming the hair regularly should be a top priority for any Doodle’s healthcare routine. Yes, you can always rely on a professional groomer to perform the tasks that you are not comfortable doing yourself. However, knowing how to groom your Goldendoodle in the comfort of your own home will be a major money saver in the long-term (among other benefits). This article will focus on the best scissors or trimming tool kits for giving stylish Goldendoodle cuts at home. Let’s get into it!
Goldendoodle coats can range from flat, to wavy, to tightly curled depending upon the generation of the particular dog. However, due to this great diversity in coat appearance and style, it can be difficult to know which kind of scissors to buy for optimal Goldendoodle cuts. Below, we discuss some highly-rated options available on the market.
Best Scissors for Goldendoodle Cuts
Grooming scissors are an essential part of any home groomer’s toolbox. While clippers will do most of the work, using scissors manually will help to finish up the cut and help your Doodle look simply perfect and flawless.
Bull Nose/Safety Scissors
With rounded tips on the blades to prevent poking your pup’s skin, safety scissors, a.k.a bull nose scissors, provide the safety needed when trimming delicate areas. They are perfect for trimming hair around the eyes, face, ears and paws. They can also be used for touch-ups between grooming visits.
There are many affordable options on the market that are of decent quality. One such product that I’ve personally been using for 7 years of home grooming my Doodle is the Pet Magasin Grooming Scissor Kit. It is constructed of quality stainless steel blades, ensuring a long lasting, sharp cutting edge. They are also ergonomically designed, with a smooth, padded handle and an extra finger rest making it very comfortable to use. They even fit both right-hand and left-handed users. The ring finger hole comfortably positions the hand for accuracy, control and smooth, clean cuts.
This extremely affordable grooming scissor kit contains two pairs of sharp, durable, stainless steel-blade dog grooming scissors with a round tip. One of the pairs of scissors is longer with smooth blades for trimming body fur. The other pair is shorter with micro-serrated blades for close work on your Doodle’s face, ears, nose, and paws.
The scissors have remarkable details as well including a satin finish, colorful handles, and Pet Magasin’s signature hinge screw which makes them look flawless. The company provides a 2-year warranty and 100% money-back guarantee. The product is available at various online stores and is great for Goldendoodle cuts.
Grooming shears differ from bull nose scissors in that they don’t have a rounded tip for safety. However, depending on the price and quality, grooming shears will help you achieve a perfect and professional groom.
Now, there are two types of grooming shears: curved and straight.
Curved shears are best for shaping body parts like under the belly, the tail, face, and paws, while straight shears are very blunt – perfect for cutting length off your Doodle’s coat.
Choosing grooming shears is largely going to be based on personal preference. There are affordable options as well as more expensive options. There are also different lengths of grooming shears.
For example, the GLADOG Dog Grooming Scissors Set is an affordable grooming kit containing straight and curved shears (as well as thinning shears, which we talk about below). It is a decent kit, but it doesn’t provide the ultimate sharpness and ease of sharpening that the more expensive Sharf Gold Touch Professional Pet Shears Kit does. The Sharf kit features two 7.5-inch dog grooming shears made of top quality 440c Japanese stainless steel.
Finished with luxurious gold accents and removable rubber pads in the handles, the Sharf Gold Touch shears kit is sure to level-up your grooming results.
However, if you’re just starting out and not sure if you will be giving your Goldendoodle cuts all that often, a more affordable option like the GLADOG set might be a better option for now.
Thinning shears are great for thinning and blending, which help to finish up and leave a Doodle’s coat smooth and natural-looking. They are also great at breaking up matted dog hair, and with a skilled hand, can remove mats without leaving a bald spot.
The Pet Magasin Thinning Shears are an affordable yet professional-quality option. The 28-toothed blade that makes them wonderful for general purpose and don’t leave hair overly thick. The blades have very blunt tips for safety and are made from Japanese surgical stainless steel for long lasting durability and the best cut possible.
They have contoured finger loops and an extra finger rest which makes it very comfortable to use. There is a hinge screw that can be adjusted to a tighter or looser scissor action to suit your preferences and to suit the area actively being trimmed. The manufacturer offers a 2-year warranty and 100% money-back guarantee on the product.
So there you have it! You now have a good place to start for finding the best grooming scissors for Goldendoodle cuts. The items listed above are the most highly-rated grooming scissors that will leave your pup looking flawless. The power of adding the most suitable grooming scissors to your grooming toolbox…is now yours!
