Winter cut suggestions?
I am a beginner groomer and when my dog's hair gets too long, he usually gets shaved down, with either a 10 blade or a 7 blade. It is time for a haircut, but since it is colder now, and it's only going to get colder, I don't want to shave him down completely because I obviously don't want him to freeze his little butt off. At petsmart, I recently bought plastic attachment combs, because those would leave some length on him, but those didn't work at all for me so I ended up returning them. Last week I ordered a 4 blade so that should be arriving in couple days. A 4 blade will leave some hair on him right? Was that a good decision? What do you guys do as far as grooming your poodles in the winter?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
