Default Mini poodle groom

Since mom24doggies is putting herself out there, I will do the same! This groom needs lots of improvements but I learned so much at a grooming seminar. I also got to see Trev and Raven interact and they are hilarious! Very active and goofy.

This mini had hair missing in her front legs. One leg from a surgery shave and the other leg the hair was ripped out, either by her or getting caught in a crate. She needs more leg hair to pull off a proper Modern but this is a nice start and we worked with the length of hair she had.

The main thing that sticks out is that I did not define the front leg and chest enough (it is defined on the other side). I also love the European rear angulation but this side had a moderate American one. I need to work on making my dog symmterical lol.

In the second picture, I edited the photo to show how even the tiniest amount of hair (in this case, the removal of), affects the whole groom!! - I edited the photo to take off more chest hair where the front leg meets the chest.

lovely job, I think you've done very well, I personally prefer a more moderate style and love the way she looks, if I were nitpicking I'd say as well as the chest the entire front leg could use a little tightening up it looks a little shaggy and the front of the back leg is a little uneven. Other than that once she grows a little more leg hair she should look stunning.

I always see so much in pictures. I can never tell if they hair is actually like that or if it's the angle. I think the back leg is smashed in from me trying to get her to stack, oops. The front legs have been challenging on her. They do need some tigtening up, but I am so paranoid about giving her pinched elbows. She also has a super wide chest, wider than normal, and she stands like a bulldog with her elbows slightly out. When I stack her with her legs under her, her front leg hair looks great, but when she stands like she wants to, her elbow bows out and you can see the hair sticking out. I'm afraid if I trim the hair that sticks out when her elbows bow out, when I go to stack her, all of that hair will me missing and her elbows will be pinched. Hopefully her owner will let me groom her again after her leg hair grows in, she definitely needs more hock hair.

Here's the other side of her. A little blurry, but that side looks better (the front leg is missing hair from surgery)

I have to say the hardest thing is doing the haircut symmetrically!

I think you did great for the amount of hair you had to work with! Most of what I see is nitpicky stuff. I like how you placed everything for the most part...I almost feel like the tuck up could come forward a bit, but the lack of stifle hair may be throwing my eye off. Over all, I would tighten her up....take more off her tuck up, (I like to see a slightly sharper underline), more off her rear, especially from the pin bone to bend...I like how her butt is though. As you pointed out, her chest needs more defining. Her crest looks a little thick right at the withers...see how it comes down, then "stops" and moves in a straighter line at the withers? I would take more off her top line as well, especially since her tail, like Trev's, is a smitch low. Or at least it looks that way here. Her bevels are a bit lower in front that the back...lol I did the same thing! I don't like Trev's front feet and I think I subconsciously try to to hide them.

Other than those little adjustments, she just needs more hair. So do my guys. Trev needs more front leg and crest and topknot. Raven needs more hock and mane and front leg hair. Conditioner and wraps here we come!

Lol, yeah, those two crack me up all the time....if I let them they would play like that all day long. But then Trev would have no hock hair and Raven wouldn't have any neck hair! You should see them at home, on two acres. They usually end up doing laps around the house haha!

Looking at the other pics, I think I didn't take enough hair off that one leg in general (the dog's left leg), cause it looks thick and the bevels look off. It's like I forgot about that leg lol.

The area I kept snipping and resnipping, and recombing and snipping some more was the tuckup. I cut a lot more hair off afterwards in the hotel room. I must have driven the dog nuts. She had so many sticky outies, I don't know where they came from! I was concerned about snipping too short in that area because she has big nipples and I didn't want to cut one off!
