I think that I misjudged how close this blade would come to my Bichon Frise’s skin, based upon the angles of the size 10 and the size 40. Since I am an amateur groomer, my first concern has always been not to cause any injury to my dog. I always envied the plush look that some people were able to give a Bichon’s coat and I was never able to achieve that look with the comb attachments or my inept scissoring.

I then searched youtube for videos on how to cut hair and experimented....And WOW, I started getting compliments after compliments - people ask me all the time where I get their hair cut, I tell them (proudly) that I do it myself. The trick is to get the right cutter and the right blade! I have two dogs and now I even do my family's and...
