Chunkers vs Texturising Dog Grooming Shears
The terms used for these dog grooming scissors tend to be confused. It is important to understand that each scissor type will help create a different finish to a correctly prepared coat.
What are Dog Grooming Chunkers?
Traditionally, the Chunker typically is between 5" and 6.5" in length and will have between 10 and 15 large teeth. This scissor will have a wider gap between each tooth. These scissors are designed to create a chunky or choppy appearance. For example, on a West Highland White or Cairn Terrier head, used with extreme caution, will add a natural choppy finish. It does go without saying at this point, that preparation is as important as the scissor.
It is advised that these scissors are used with caution and precision. Used incorrectly may result in the removal of too much hair and affect the finish on the dog. Chunker scissors are not recommended for dog groomers just starting out, however, practice with them, will be beneficial.
What are Dog Grooming Texturisers?
Texturising shears are just as their name suggests. These dog grooming scissors are designed to give a soft and creamy textured finish on a correctly prepared coat. The length of a texturising scissor can vary between 7" to 9" in length and the number of teeth ranging from 16 to 30. A texturising dog grooming scissor is a more versatile scissor compared to a chunker, as they are able to add a finish to the coat and can help remove any unwanted bulk. They leave a soft, textured finish to a coat. This finish is different to the sharp tailored finished achieved with a straight blade scissor.
