We rescued a cocker spaniel a couple weeks ago, a male I named Tobi. What I am wondering about is what tools are best for trimming him at home? I prefer to do my own dogs rather than let someone else do it. And I feel like its less stressful for the dog.
I have an andis agc trimmer and I can't figure out what guide combs to get, can anyone help me with that? I have him in a typical cut, short on back long sides and legs. His fur is pretty straight. Versus our other cocker who has the curliest cocker coat I've ever seen.
Again:
What guide combs for a brand new one speed andis agc trimmer?
What tools?

Thanks!

I like using different blades, vs combs, as I find the combs give such a rough look. When I used to groom a friend`s 3 Cockers, I used a 7blade on their backs a 10 blade on their faces and heads and the top part of their ears and hand scissored their skirts and legs. I don`t know what the professionals use, but that's the way she liked them to look :)
