Wahl Bravura Clipper
After reading many reviews on this product, we took a chance and bought it. These are the first clippers my husband and I have ever used, and they're simple enough for us. We admittedly need some practice, but our two dogs loved it. It must feel like getting brushed. The clippers are pretty quiet so the dogs weren't scared at all. We're really happy with the purchase. Will save us money in the long run.

Great run time and cut is clean
Bravura Wahl has been a great set of clipper's. My wife and I have four long hair cats and these do and excellent job of trimming away all those cat hair mats that are poor little cats get. These clippers are also not very loud when using to scare our cats as we clip them. We have tried other clipper with no success. The Bravura Wahl clippers seem also to hold a longer battery charge then most of the brands on todays market. We are very happy with these clippers. Thanks again to Doctors Foster & Smith in selling only the top brand of clippers.

It's so nice to be able to find a great product. This clipper works perfectly!!! I love it. Because it's quiet, my dog wasn't half as scared around the face area as he otherwise would be with loud clippers. The Wahl Bravura clippers were a bit pricey but because they worked so good it allowed me to do a pretty good job on my dog, which will save me money in the long run. The cordless part is a definite plus too. It kept the charge during the entire time. I am very happy I made this purchase.

Very nice - Cool running and quiet. Great price, and excellent value.
I did a great deal of research before settling on the Bravura for my two cats. The Bravura was recommended by groomers for being quiet, runs cool, cordless and the blade settings are contained within the clippers - no changing blades for different lengths.
Not quite the "heavy duty" selection according to groomers but I found it perfectly suited to my needs.
It worked through the American Medium hair like butter. Struggled a little with my Persian cat's mats but they were extreme mats so I consider it to have done very well given the circumstances. We moved slowly and carefully and it did just fine. Once we were through the mats it managed the fine Persian hair quite nicely. I don't recommend a blade length any shorter than 10, as 9 (the shortest setting) was a bit close for my liking.
Blade lengths are NOT shown on the device, I had to do some Googling to determine which was which. "9" is the farthest setting to the right. (You can see the blades sliding forward and backward - the shortest setting moves the blade right up to the end of the clippers.) I found that the middle setting was a good length for my kitties. (Lion cut for the Persian and sanitation cut for the American Medium - although the shortest setting would suffice for a sani cut)
You do get a little more power when you leave the cord attached which is a good to note for those only interested in the cordless aspect of this product.
I recommend working through CLEAN fur - even if you have mats, bathe first! (Dry thoroughly) The difference is amazing.
Easy to clean and store the clippers afterward. I highly recommend this product. Foster and Smith had the best price on the net and it came extremely quickly!
