Default Grooming tips for the Overweight Poodle...

I just did a clients Poodle that is very overweight & thought I would share the after photos & how a person that is grooming their overweight Poodle can balance the haircut.

The photo is a female,tall Mini, old, bad skin, warts that are large & interfere with brushing & combing to get a nice fluff finish BUT we do what we can as presented. Izzy's owner likes it short all over but doesn't want the dog to look fat or have stick legs.

This is what I did-
1. body #4 blade, including neck, belly & the bend in the hind leg

2. Front legs are a "0"SOC with the top of the leg meeting body a #2 SOC blended

3. Hind leg we have issues- fat thigh, lacking angle. The thigh from where I stopped on the body #2 all the way down until I started to see a parallel line to the ground. I didn't take any off the front of the back leg yet only fat thigh. Then a "0"SOC from hocks down all around.

4. Owner doesn't like fluffy feet so they are scissored a little tight but no poodle feet. Owner also likes flat TK with slight bang as well as a mustache.

For a 15 year old dog with some issues she still looks fat but balanced.

Well at age 15 she is going to have some issues, I don't think she looks fat at all, she is a very pretty poodle girl, and she looks great.

I so respect and regard you for grooming this grand old lady to look her best. Izzy must have a good appetite for life. I hope she feels well and struts her stuff for a long time to come. There's something truly exquisite about seniors.
