    If I use a 10 or 8 on the back, I will do the rest of the pattern in a 5 to leave just a hint of the Cocker pattern. I just backbrush the hair on the feet and scissor the feet short the whole way around to match the length of the leg.

    I would not do poodle feet on a cocker, sometimes its hard enough just shaving the pads without being bit.However I would make the feet tight by using the same blade on the feet(between the toes, do not cut in reverse ) you want tighter not shorter . scissor stray hairs to neaten.

    Yeah, but they still will pee every time you look at them. AND when they get older they get those awful warts.

    I do the same things as the other people. If you have Theory of Five it shows how to get a natural looking foot by taking the clippers in reverse over the foot. I really like the look.

    [QUOTE=KarlaSnyder;398056] I try to give them a tight "cat foot" if possible. Otherwise, I will give them poo feet with a 7F reverse on the tops.

    I do the same thing...makes them look smaller and brings in less of the outdoors indoors

On my cocker strips, I try to do the sides and legs one blade longer than the back. Gives them a semblance of a pattern, and looks better as they grow out.
    Yeah!! thats right they have big beefty feet!!! very thick and meaty .
