Great quality clippers and accessories, prompt service and delivery. We have a Newfoundland (Neville) and he really is a big job (and an expensive one) to clip. It took two big sessions, but the clippers were triumphant! I would recommend the kit to anyone with a woolly beast like Neville! The soap is very nice, too.
These clippers are rubbish and a waste of money.
The clippers are noisy and rattly - they sound like sheep shears. They didn't cut very well and clipping my dog was an ordeal for both of us. The fancy aluminium case and other tools don't make up for the poor quality of the clippers. Even the scissors didn't cut. I have now done what I should have done in the first place - buy a pair of clippers from a well-respected brand (Andis). My dog now stands while I clip him with no fuss at all, even around his head. Don't waste your money on these clippers.

Do not buy - complete waste of money
I purchased a clipper set from Salty Dog in September 2015 and it was only that they recently sent an email advertising a new product, that I remembered to write this review to warn others not to purchase. Quite simply the product was rubbish, yes nice looking case, etc but for a start the clippers didn't work. I followed the instructions and to begin with the blade would not detach from the main clipper body, the heads seemed to be out of alignment. After some frustrating dealings via Facebook (as there was no other way to contact) they sent m...e a video on how to release the blade - surprise surprise the release button looked completely different to the set I had in front of me. I finally released and set up the clippers but everything seemed a bit wonky. I could have coped with wonky clippers if they had worked! I have two small spoodles with not outrageously difficult coats to clip - my previous Oster clippers had always breezed through the hair, but these blades did not even cut. Not at all. Ongoing contact moved to email, they sent me a form to return clippers to somewhere in either Perth or Canberra for servicing. All I wanted was my money back but alas no. As I was in the middle of selling a house and moving overseas, I never managed to send off for "repair" and ended up throwing the whole kit - fancy case & all in the bin. Worst purchase ever. Save your money by spending a bit more and buying a reputable brand from a retail store where you can walk back in and speak with someone about any problems and maybe even get a refund if they don't work. Kudos to the other reviewer who involved Fair Trading and got their money back, I wish I had done the same.

Best dog clippers by far as well as exceptional service
These dog clippers are so easy to use and make trimming the dogs a smooth process. They make short work of thick fur and are gentle as well.
The kit has everything you need and the customer service from this company is second to none. Very impressed.
Bought the Salty Dog Clippers kit and it arrived quickly. The clippers are easy to use and cut effortlessly. The blade included in the kit was a bit too short for my dogs. So ordered another blade but it wouldn't cut. Worried I had wasted my money, I contacted Salty Dog by email and they were straight back to me with advice and a replacement blade. The new blade does a great job. So I am very pleased with the Salty Dog product. Very good clippers and excellent after sales service.
Exactly the tool I needed!
Living in central Australia the heat can really take its toll on our pooches. Me and my partner have a husky and a German Shephard, Salty Dog provided us with the exact tool we needed to help keep our fur babies cool in not only the summer but the winter as well. We found ourselves spending a fortune every couple of months for hair cuts on our doggos but now we are saving even after purchasing extra blades as back ups. Quick delivery and excellent customer service from these guys! Have definitely recommended it to friends around town :)
Great clippers with all accessories included
Really happy with my purchase. Gorgeous box set with everything required for grooming our Cavie. My daughter and I took turns, easy to use. Purchased an extra blade as well which was easy to change over. Will be so glad not to have to fork out $$$ every second month.
Great value, works wonderfully
I purchased this set and was really impressed wth the results. It is going to save me a fortune in clipping expenses.
I also purchased another blade for my poodle and changing blades was easy peasey.
I also love the fact everything is kept in one case, so no bits go astray.
The communication given to me by the sellers was wonderful.
I cannot fault this kit in any way. I definitely recommend it.
Waste of Money
I have been grooming my two dogs for many years and have owned Wahl clippers in the past that worked very well. The clippers I have received are not good quality and do not cut. I have contacted the organisation three times now, firstly to get advice on changing the blades as the pictures in the manual are misleading, I had to email twice to get a response, and secondly, to inform the company that I would like my money back and to ask where I send the faulty set I have received. Still waiting on their reply. Clippers are useless and the customers service is not great either. I was going to purchase my first set of Osters....kicking myself now.
Waste of time and money
Noisy first time used even though the blade hadn't been touched, need a bottle of oil each time hard to assemble wish I had read the reviews first and I wouldn't have bought them. My dog deserves better Ronson hair clippers for humans do a better job and CHEAPER.
Happy with clippers and service
I purchased Salty Dog clippers early this year. I was impressed at how beautifully presented they were. I did have a few problems with my clippers. Each time I contacted them they were very prompt with their response and gave lots friendly advice. After continued problems with my clippers they were replaced immediately and arrived within a couple of days. I really can't fault their service. The new set cut like a dream.

Still totally disappointed
I have a poodle x I am totally disappointed with this product. I followed the instructions to the letter first time i ran down the dog's back they just clogged up and within 2 minutes they were so hot, i couldn't touch the blade to get it off. I tried everything you suggested with no success. I want my money back where do i send them. Very disappointed in your clippers.
Still very disappointed in your clippers.
You sent me the new blade thanks but now I find that the combs don't fit it and I don't want to shave my dog nearly bald so i am still very angry and disappointed in your product and I still want my money back where do I send it.
Questions & Answers
What type of company does not respond to concerns and complaints from their customers?
HI, I'm looking to buy a suitable clipper. I have a moodle/maltipoo. I need clippers that are not very noisy but more importantly that dont over heat, I dont want to burn my dog. I am not a professional but want to keep my pup looking neat between professional grooms
I use the Salty dog clippers on my King Charles Cavalier spaniel, I have not had any problems with the clippers overheating. I do keep the clipper area brushed clear of fur and well oiled. I have had to youtube clips to learn how to clip my dog and know that my work is not professional but he is kept well groomed, good luck!
Hi Salty Dog, we have an Airedale Terrier so is there anything you would recommend in addition to the regular kit. Cheers, Ernie
