    Thanks for answering. I don't want sheep but would like to know where to buy sheep shears for my Labradoodle. Any Advice?

    We have sheep. 30+ right now.

    As for the shears....I know our local Fleet Farms and Farm&Fleets sell them.
    The ones made specially for sheep run about $220-$250.
    They have cheaper ones, but they're not made to go through the wool on the sheep.

    Oh.......Thanks. We don't have those stores down here but I can probably order them online. That doesn't sound like much when I compare the price to grooming costs [​IMG]

    I like premier1 for mine there blades are expensive but they have a sharpening service and I haven't bought a new blade set yet.
