Both my standards are in the German right now.
Here's Vienna, not very smooth scissoring, more rough than anything, don't mind that close leg, she'd chewed a hole in it that had to be compensated for.

The great thing about poodle boys is no one assumes they are, so you can pick whatever clip you want. Add bows, paint nails, anything. Even if you think they look masculine, people will still call him a her.
I LOVE the german clip, Unfortunately Sawyers tail was docked crappy, so I can't do it on him :(
But currently I have him in a lamb clip, with the addition of bell bottoms. Shaved ears as well.
He had some biopsies done about a month or two ago so I had to shave him down completely, but I got to keep his bellbottoms so I'm waiting for his topknot to get bigger again!
Someone else on here-Tokipoke- used to dye her dogs, she gave Leroy a purple mohawk and pompoms with a leather jacket thing. THAT was awesome! You should totally do that at some point! aha

My boy struts his stuff in all the clips...with matching seasonal painted nails. Haven't done bows yet, but I'm sure that will. Whenever someone gives me a hard time I just tell them he doesn't know the difference.

I personally find shaved ears, a full face or a shaved face with a mustache, full feet, and a shaved or carrot tail to be some of the most masculine looking choices. A full-footed German incorporates all of that! : ) That said, I wouldn't give a hoot about making my male Poodle look masculine. People won't know he's a boy either way and the most important part is that the dog will not care one bit what he looks like. Put him in a tutu with matching nail polish and don't forget his tiara!

Oh yes!!! At first my hubby rolled his eyes along with everyone else, but now seems to actually enjoy picking out Hibbert's next style and toe colors. "It's my wife's dog" is his typical answer to laughs.

Regardless of gender, they all think they are hot stuff and KNOW IT when they are all made up. ;-)

@fluffyspoos - Your boy looks amazing in that clip. he seems so soft, and it really suits his body shade imo. Personally it seems to serious to me, i'm a goof with a goofball dog
@Sawyersmomma - I get it already. He has a blue collar and blue tags, and people that come over say "wow, she's so cute!". I'm not really bothered, just everyone things my other dogs are the opposite genders as well. I've seen a pic or two of leroy, and he's such a cute boy with his dye.
@Ellyisme - He already knows he's cute. I swear, he poses for pics. I'm sure ill get to the point of bows on him as well.
@PammiPoodle - Hey, if you can't beat um, join um! take back what people are saying about him and make him go that extra mile. I like it haha.

As you can see, the body is clipped short, while the legs are clipped longer. One thing that makes it different from a lamb is that the two lengths are not blended. Youre supposed to see the lines where the coat length changes, but in this shot you really cant. Part of the reason is that the leg coat is not that much longer than the body (saves me brushing time, LOL), and part of it is that all the light is coming from the camera flash, and lighting a subject like that reduces perception of depth and detail.

Here is an article about how to do this clip:

OMG - this blog is just wonderful! This groomer is amazing. I love her sense of humor and pictures. I do like my groomer, but if this gal were close to me, I'd pay her double what she charges! (I already tip my groomer 100%, so there you are. I don't think my groomer charges enough, and Cookie's apparently not even difficult to groom).

My boy was in continental lion trim but now his hair is growing back to scandinavian lion. After the world dog show I may clip him to terrier clip or a modified modern clip.
