  • My poodle

    Hopefully this works! My poodle is finally growing into a trim which somewhat hides his faults!! His confirmation is terrible!! I know he doesn’t look great, but I am kind of proud because he is put together terribly incorrectly. He is the best guy though!

      Thanks so much. He is such a train wreck. Everything you don’t want in a standard wrapped up in one. With the exception of a great coat and personality of course. I love my blind silly guy!!

        I really like what you have done with your poodle. Is it hand scissored pretty much all over, or can you tell me your procedure? I really like that trim on poodles. I am going to put mine in a similar trim once she is done showing. I love the shaved ears. Did you use a 10?

          Scully, I think he looks great! His color is beautiful! It looks like he has a nice face too! I used to keep my old guy in the German with the full feet. I took him to Intergroom last year, and it was his last competition. He will be 12 yrs in a couple of weeks, so I just keep him short all over now. I do miss that trim! I do my young male in the same trim, but with shaved feet. I just put him in it a few weeks ago. Do you shave his tail or scissor it like a Kerry Blue?

            Fur Elite, I do pretty much hand scissor him. I attended a class in Atlanta were they were talking about dividing the dog in halves and thirty and forty degree angles. Not so sure I got it though. I used a half inch to set tallest part of his roach back as to divide him in half. Then tried to blend everything else I still have to grow out his flank and hocks. I actually used a 30 on his ears, I shave them all the time (chronic ear issues) so I didn’t think I would run into clipper burn probs.

              Winterroo, Thanks! This is my silver I was talking about. Sometimes I scissor his tail. I just shaved it off this time. If you ever want to use him (although he is very malformed) let me know I’ll grow out whatever. Think I might use him sometime, but we’d probably be laughed out of the competition. I have never competed before so I don’t know. He is really good though and grows a mile a minute and is a statue on the table.

                A 30 on the ears, OK that is great. I think it looks wonderful. Since I shave my dogs face with a 40 I probably would do the same as you on the ears. I can't stand just a little fuzziness. I think it looks great, and I laugh every time you talk about how "malformed" your poodle is.

                      What a great groom! very pretty color.

                      In the second pic he could almost be part of the fence, he blends right into the coloring. lol
