Once your clientele builds up, you will want to add to your shear collection. When shopping for a second blending shear, think about the types of dogs that you work on. Are you looking for a shear that can be an eraser on smaller dogs with finer coats? Are you looking for a large pair that can cover a lot of ground on a large body such as a Golden Retriever or Doodle? Are you dealing with a Terrier-type coat or maybe a sporting dog style? Ultimately, you want to have four or five different styles of blending shears in your collection so that you can tackle any coat type with ease.
