Dog “Clipper Guard Size Chart” Experiment on My Doodle Video

But First, Pin It!

In this article, we are going to compare the different lengths of cuts you can get on your Doodle. Chloe and I did a “clipper guard size chart” experiment to see exactly how each length looks on a Doodle.

Dog Clipper Guard Size “Chart”

Specifically, we are going to demonstrate:

  • 1-inch clipper comb (bottom row, light blue comb)
  • 3/4-inch clipper comb (bottom row, light purple comb)
  • 1/2-inch clipper comb (top row, peach comb)
  • 1/4-inch clipper comb (top row, purple comb)
  • 1/4-inch clipper blade (Andis #5FC)
  • 1/8-inch clipper comb (top row, red comb)

This will be useful if you need a visual reference on how long or short you’d like to trim your Doodle.

Please watch the video above for better reference.

At the time of this experiment, Chloe had been growing out her hair for about 3.5 months. Her hair was probably around 1.5-2 inches long. 

If you’re going to be doing the grooming yourself, be sure to brush your dog out all over the body before clipping. 

1-Inch Clipper Comb

First, we started with a clipper comb that cuts down to 1-inch.

The 1-inch comb didn’t take much off, but it did trim.

Here are the before and after pictures:

1/4-Inch Clipper Blade

Next, we used just the blade, a #5FC that cuts down to 1/4-inch. It was interesting to see how the 1/4-inch blade was still cutting lots of hair even after using the 1/4-inch clipper comb.

I should note that I was using a #10 blade under the clipper combs, rather than the #30 blade which is more recommended for use with clipper combs.
