Wahl dog clippers are larger tools designed to cut longer body hair. Wahl dog trimmers are more for detailing and touch-ups.

Wahl manufactures its clippers and trimmers in its own factories in Sterling, Illinois; parts come from Germany, England, China, and Hungary, while international plants are present in China, England, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Japan.
