Erica, i have no idea what stuff you may still have, but the breeder suggested I get clip on metal combs for my clippers. Made it fast to get a finish other than 'scalped dog', and to blend ( long on legs, short on body, etc). It was also cheaper than buying a bunch of different blades, and a little harder to accidentally cut the dog. A clamp on grooming arm and noose is also really helpful, I didn't have it the first time I tried, and it was much easier/faster with it, because it limits how far away she can turn from the clippers. I think the modern clippers are a lot lighter than my 20 yr old set, and probably than those in the 90s too. For the first 2 grooms I did face and feet one day, rest of dog a few days or a week later which made it easier on me and the wiggly puppy.
