If your poodle’s feet get shaved, it is important to follow the correct pattern on the feet. Kendra Otto, Andis grooming ambassador prefers the ProClip Pulse Ion Adjustable Blade Clipper: “The 5-in-1 adjustable blades offers versatility. Lighter colored, red and apricot poodles have very sensitive skin, so be sure to keep blades running cool and you might want to use a 10 or 15 blade on their feet. For dark poodles, a 15 or 30 blade will work well.”
“Hi Mrs. Evans. I had the opportunity to attend your Speed Grooming with Style class at Groom Expo West. You mentioned proper dog clipping technique but did not elaborate. I am a new teacher at a local grooming school. I find it difficult to explain proper clipping techniques to the students. Do you have any words of wisdom?” – Rhonda L.
Hi Rhonda. Proper clipper technique is taken for granted.

Fast & Easy Pet Trims for the Salon
The majority of our Bread & Butter Shih Tzu clients request a “puppy cut”, meaning anything from a shave to a scissor all over, with a styled head. Our favorites, however, are the clients that want to keep their drop coats long and flowing.
These members of our Bread & Butter list generally schedule weekly visits for maintenance.
