Heiniger The Choice of Champions

Heiniger for dog grooming

Heiniger AG was founded in 1946 by Hermann Heiniger.  The company originally traded fruit and vegetables but in the 1960s began producing shearing devices for grooming animals, including large animals like cattle, sheep, and horses, as well as dogs. 

Heiniger has remained a family business over the years with a focus on precision and safety.  Their family values are very much reflected in their company culture and a large number of their highly skilled team have celebrated 35 years in service, after starting as apprentices with the company. 

Heiniger, which celebrates its 75th Anniversary this year, are world leaders in animal shearing, with their range constantly evolving to meet the customers’ needs.  Their exceptional range of high-quality clippers and trimmers feature world-class design and manufacturing technology. Designed with low noise levels and quality operator comfort, it is clear to see why Heiniger is a popular choice amongst groomers. With cord and cordless options to choose from and a range of blades, Heiniger is a reliable choice for groomers at any stage of their careers.

The Choice for Feet and Faces

Style Mini and Midi Trimmers

Heiniger Mini and Midi

The Heiniger Style Midi is a lightweight and quiet trimmer perfect for trimming a dog's head, legs, belly or tail area.  The trimmer is ergonomically shaped to be comfortable to hold, and it has a 100 min run time. It gives a precise cut and great finish, and the tilted head means it moves smoothly with the curve of the dog. It features a 46mm wide blade and takes snap-on combs (5 combs included). 

Mini has 30mm adjustable blades so it can cut a range of different short lengths.  The size makes it perfect for feet, faces and sanitary areas, particularly on small or toy breeds, groomers may normally scissor, but using this trimmer will cut grooming times of those areas. Its unique shape makes it comfortable to hold and gives a more precise cut.  It has an 80 min run time and will recharge in just 60 mins.  

Both trimmers are great for nervous dogs as they are not only low noise, but very low vibration.

A Choice Blades and Accessories

Heiniger Comb Guides and Blades


Both the Opal and Saphir take an A5 type snap-on blade, we also stock a range of Heiniger blades, finished with the same precision as their top-selling clippers.  Investing in quality clipper blades will ensure a great finish, and your blades will remain sharper for longer – as long as they are cleaned and oiled regularly. Heiniger blades are some of the best in the world and retain their edge for a long period of time. As well as a range of blades, Heiniger also offers a metal snap-on comb guide set, containing nine different lengths to easily attach to your clipper blade and achieve a perfect cut.
