Like anything, it takes practice.
I've got that and read it cover to cover within a few days of receiving! It is a good one!

I got to groom that poodle again today that I mentioned before in this thread, and I got a picture! It's not the best, he didn't want to stack at all and it was taken with my iPad, but you can see the kind of clip I was talking about. I used a #5 on his body, a 1/2" guide comb on his rear and to blend at the hips, a 3/8" guide comb on the back of his hind leg down to the bend, and then left him a crest on his neck. I didn't touch his legs or crest other than to blend, we are growing them in. I really like this as a pet trim. It's easy, doesn't take me long to do, and clients think I'm the bomb when they see their dog! Lol...

If you want, I can draw my pattern/blending lines for you. Just let me know of you would like that. I wish I had gotten photos from the front and back, so that you could see there are no lines at all. Just straight parallel lines from hip to floor and shoulder to floor.

Hope this helps!

ETA: I realize this isn't a perfect trim, I'm not looking for critiques really. I'm just trying to help kukachoo as she is trying different clips on her Dude.

And here is a Town and Country I do....not my favorite trim, but oh well! Her legs are growing in, her previous groomer wacked them off and left her a giant poofy butt and shoulders. Gah!! Who does that?! I'm going to experiment and see if I can draw in her legs to show what I would prefer them to look like.

Aww, thank you so much for remembering this thread and coming back to help me some more! Dude has something going on with the skin on his tail and back right now. I'm freaking out thinking SA and I have an appointment with the vet on Friday. I really hope it is some other cause that we can clear up easily, but I've been doing a ton of reading and I've pretty much got myself convinced he has sebaceous adenitis.

I used a 4 on his trunk and just scissored his legs and butt to blend, but I will definitely be trying out your method at some point!

Thanks again!

Poodles can get a lot of other skin issues besides SA...I wouldn't freak out just yet! It may just be allergies, yeast, or a bit of staph. Anyways, you are welcome! A 4 may be good for Dude btw....this particular poodle has thick thick THICK (its difficult to scissor its so thick) coat and so I can take him shorter without showing skin. I don't know how Dude's coat is, but just thought I would mention that fact!

Good luck at the vet.

ETA: I just realized your username is kukukachoo, sorry I had it wrong!

Just saw this thread and I'm hope it's forgivable if I elbow in here....
A professional groomer, someone with a great reputation and 20+ years experience, approached me about putting Chagall into the Dutch Clip. She would do it gratis, only asking for the right to take and use photos of him in it. She is convinced he would look exceptional, given his build. While the trim sort of freaks me out, I'm getting to be much more game about changing his hairstyle. I usually groom Chagall myself, and I don't know what exactly it would entail to grow him out for her to do the trim, and how it would be to manage transitioning him back to the safe-and-comfortable-for-me Lamb. Do you, or anyone else who might care to comment, have any thoughts on what the Dutch Clip might look like on an over-sized, lithe mini? And the "hassle" factor of transitioning him into and out of it?

mom24doggies:

Thank you SO much for the specifics. That is what I want to attempt (and I use that word loosely here) to try on my Lou. I can't speak for Kukukachoo, obviously, but I would greatly love it if you did the drawings.

I like a Dutch better then a t&c. It's basically the same, but with a smaller waist band. My issue is, any time you give them a band around their body it makes them look longer and squatty. Now, Chagall has lovely long legs and if she did a true Dutch with a fairly small band, he could probably pull it off. Then there is the issue of a neck band. It tends to make their necks look short and not very elegant. As you can tell, I'm not a huge fan of patterned clips on poodles. However, there is a way to execute them that isn't quite as offensive to my personal eye.

As far as ease of transition....it's not difficult. It would probably take a couple months to get him into a Dutch, maybe a bit more. Then once you are ready for the lamb again you just zip off the extra coat on his body and voila! Your lamb is back.

ETA: ArcadiaX I will get that done for you as soon as I get home this evening.

mom24doggies: And a HUGE thanks from me, too! Thank you for so generously sharing your considerable grooming know-how and opinion. You've told me EXACTLY what I need to know. I'm going to decline the offer of the groomer doing the Dutch Clip, at least for now. Much appreciate your time and input!
