Haha--I would have told you to go for it! But then I do like the patterned clips and can't wait to try more of them. You saw the picture of Sugarfoot in the extreme town and country he was in, body taken down with a 15 blade. That was some 3 months ago, and within a month of that I had him back in a lamb, preparing for winter with more hair.

I definitely plan to try the Dutch some time. And any other cut that strikes my fancy!

You are welcome Chagall's Mom. Anytime.

To each their own Quossum!! I've stated as clearly as I can that my dislike of patterns is just that, MY dislike. Lots of people do like them and I'm certainly ok with that. Some of it depends on the dog too....Sugarfoot has a very slim short body and a long long neck. That helps in balancing a pattern out. Either way it's Mom's decision, I think Chagall is handsome whatever trim he is in!

Don't give up me, Q, I am fickle as can be and a renown mind-changer! I DID like how Sugarfoot looked in that T&C. I thought his coloring made him look extra cool. All I can commit to at this point is mulling it over some more. The groomer thinks the Dutch will bring out Chagall's assets and that kind of reverberates in my head. It will also draw more attention to him and, well, I would enjoy that too. You just don't see too many silver mpoos in a Dutch Clip out here int he country! I haven't ruled it out, I am just indulging my "cold feet syndrome" at the moment. The groomer who's itching to get her hands on Chagall doesn't own a poodle herself but has groomed a fair number and used to do the Dutch years ago for two clients. I am soaking up all poodle peeps input here and I'm very glad to have yours. Thanks!

Oh yeah, definitely! Wasn't arguing, just giving the wild n crazy perspective! lol Certainly it's Chagall's Mom's decision all the way.

I totally agree that some "body types" look better in some clips than others, just as some human clothing fashion choices are better on some body shapes than others (no horizontal stripes for me, f'instance!). You give a great groomer's point of view on these things in regards to dog clip styles, and your experience is very much appreciated and respected.

Chagall and Sugarfoot are both those fortunate type fellows who look good in anything, so we have some flexibility.

I like the dutch over t&c as I find that t&c on a dog that is long or heavier it make them look like a sway backed sausage. But that being said they are poodles and they grow a lota hair and you can always switch later just have fun.

Sorry it took me a bit to get a photo up...the holidays are a crazy time for me.

So here are the lines I follow, more or less. I'm a horrible Paint user so bear with me!

Solid red=where I stopped with my #5
Dotted red=where I blended to with my #1
Green=where I used my #1 on the rear
Blue=where I use a #2 in reverse to accentuate the angles.

As a side note, I don't just "stop" with my blade at the solid lines, I blend it off a bit. If you just "stop" and make a definite line, it is more difficult to blend in later. Also, I followed the line of his back leg down a bit, just to show how heavy he is...his leg stops much further up!

I wish I could have gotten a better photo...he just refused to stand any other way! Every time I moved him he started pancaking onto the table. I don't know why, he was fine when I was grooming him. Go figure!!

Hope that helps y'all.
