If your poodle’s feet get shaved, it is important to follow the correct pattern on the 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.

These paint chips are hard to get out of the coat, short of washing the dog again.
Some groomers have been experiencing cord problems with clippers that have voltage converters on the end of the cord. These converters adapt 120 volts AC to DC current that runs your clipper. DC motors have more torque and seem to hold speed better in tough coat. Because of the extra weight of some of these cords, they break and short out right behind the clipper.
