  • Pom using 1" length comb all over

    This is Mini Cooper, his owner wanted him trimmed all over. Well, it worked better this time than the first time! I got all the undercoat OUT and that helped a lot.

    I really thought he looked soooooo good in the first pic. Didn't want to really look at the next one (I have a soft spot for Poms the way they are suppose to look) but I must say he looked really good in the second pic. He looks like a puppy. Very nice grooming there Tammy.

          cute! i also do a pom in this length. On her rear legs i do a #4 in reverse up to her hock which comes out really nice.

          I have trouble with the head/neck/chest. there's never a nice tranisition to the body & they always come out looking a little "helmet head -ish" do you know what i mean? last time i tried really defining the ears more & that helped ... but the rest i'm not real sure. any suggestions????

              Very cute Tammy. One of my all time favorite things to do. I love scissor cuts on poms. When all the undercoat is removed their hair is so plush, and stands up nicely. I just love to scissor it. You did a great job.

                Poms

                Beautiful Tammy! Perfection on those front legs too!

                I use a Poodle style comb to really get all that hair to line up so to speak.
                Recently, I was much improved on the pair I do.

                I don't know how to blend in the head as well as I'd like either.

                Help anyone?

                  I use a longer guard comb in reverse and thinning shears.

                    very cute, and a very nice grooming job. I bet the customer was very happy. I have to admit, I really enjoy doing this type of cut on a pom. It gives them a nice tidy look and once the undercoat is out, it takes no time at all, and they do look very Puppy like.
                    don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

                        Actually, it does look like there is no transition from the photo, but it's because he has a bandanna on. In all actuality, he looks smooth all over. What I do is I take the comb from the chin and go down the chest, and from the cheeks and go down the sides, etc... It all blends. If not, I use thinners.

                          Thanks guys. Coop is a good boy but he screams when I barely tug on a tangle, lol. Once I got the undercoat out, it was much better than the first time I tried this.

                          The first time I tried to get this clip on him, it didn't work so smoothly. It was awful, but the owner was happy. I explained it all to her and she told me before this groom that after a week it was "perfect," so I was happy that she didn't have to wait a week for this one to look ok, lol.
