    This is my newest guy. He was given to me a month or so ago. He's a big boy, a year old. His dad is an International Champion and his pedigree is full of champs. This is after I groomed him the other night. Getting ready for Atlanta in 6 weeks. I think he's a keeper

    He's a very handsome boy. You need a bigger grooming table!

        He was given to you? I hate you! (only kidding). He's absolutely beautiful. I'd say he was a definite keeper (but if you don't want him.........hee hee hee). You did a really nice job on him. I'm going to Atlanta this year. How will all of us petgroomer.com people know who you are? I'd love to see how you do with the new addition. Nice grooming job.
        don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

                  What did you use on the body? DId you hand scissor the legs?

                  My only question is, and I've had this question for a LONG time, is why do groomers in competitions always do that "pointy butt" look on them? I don't notice it as much anymore, as I am used to it, but I thought now would be a good time to ask. I am not the best poodle groomer in town, so I could use a little bit of information on this.

                    Thanks everyone...

                    I used a 5/8" metal clipper comb to rough in the angulation and his length and used a #5 metal clipper comb in reverse on his topline. Then I scissored the entire body to smooth and blend.

                    The pointy butt thing is "angulation". Poodle grooming should be all about angulation. I didn't like it before but now I do appreciate it more. You dont have to make it so extreme... but it looks alot better than a round rear. All a round rear does is make their butt look balloony to me now.

                      You said the topline is a #5 metal as in Wahl? Doesn't that make him almost bald on the back? Just curious because I am trying to find a way to go shorter on my dogs back without balding him out or making his topline dip down towards the shoulders.

                        Sorry, meant the #4 in reverse, but yes, the Wahl comb. To keep from giving a dip, don't go that far up. I go about mid way of the body or less, then scissor it to blend with the neck/shoulder area.
