What are the best type of dog clipper?

I know clipping too far down can be real dangerous for the dog, so I'm looking especially for a safe kind of dog clippers.

Dog clippers have guards on them same as barber clippers. This prevent clipping too close and cutting the dog. Dogs have their coats for a reason. Not all dogs are to be clipped, and no dog should be shaved, especially in the summer.

Personally, I find the pedipaws to be the best dog clipper. It is a battery operated grinder that grinds down the nails. It is quite and gentle on the dog. It is safe for use, just be careful not to gind to far into the dogs nail bed. It is also important to let your dog become use to clipping.

There are now nail clippers out on the market equipped with sensors that take the worry and guess work out of clipping your dog's nails. However, also be aware of nail filers made for use on pets. Nail filers offer a safe and effective way to grind away jagged edges that can be left behind when using clippers.

Peticur is the best dog clipper I have found and it does not hurt the dogs like the old faioned dog clippers do.

Some may say those rotary sand paper things, but my dog just won't let me near him with them, he can't tolerate the noise or vibration. Best is to consult a groomer to teach you how to see where the "quick" of the nail is, and to keep styptic powder to staunch a bleed. You can learn this really quickly.

Certain nail clippers for dogs include a safety hinge that keep you from clipping too far down and hurting your dog. Your local pet store should have a variety.
