Default Murphy in a Miami ; Maeve pics too

I decided to try and leave some bracelets (bracelet vs pom?) on cause they look cool, didn't use to think so but it grew on me.

I need a lot more practice with scissors and shaping in general but this will do for now.

I messed up on the fronts so they ended up smaller than what I was originally going for. Is there an official spot where they are supposed to start? I was going to go just above the joint but they are right at or maybe even a little below the joint.


Maeve just had her feet and face done. I started doing more of their neck area, which I guess is a town and country but I like it so it gets incorporated.

I'm trying to decide what I want to do with the tails so for now they are in a german like style


Feel free to share any little tricks you have or things I should know about.

I don't know how to get the pictures oriented the correct way, they aren't like that on my phone or computer.

the last 3 pics from above and these are after a walk so the pups are tired.

Clover makes some cameo appearances, she gets lots of attention too.

I love the photo of both dogs sleeping on their beds side by side
their coats look so shiny & healthy
Love the bracelets, how long does it take to clip a standard Poodle
I think my arms would lose strength before I had finished

I really like what you did, they both look good !

The only thing I might want to change is the back of the head. I would try and blend the hair on the head to the hair on the neck. I use a comb to get the blending effect, but I donít press it on the head. I start from the neck and draw a straight line where the hair on the head starts. I donít know if it makes sense, Iím not a professional.

I don't know if I'm a good base line on how long it takes to clip a standard cause I imagine I'm pretty slow. I probably spent 3 hours on Murphy but I also only have one 10 blade and one 3 1/2 so I have to stop and let them cool down. I just got the cooling spray so that should help next time. It takes me a long time to get through their feet but my new blade should be coming in tomorrow so I'm hoping that will make their feet easier. Its only 5/8 of an inch wide and fits my Andis AGC2 clippers so it should be more powerful and easier to maneuver than my cordless set I used this time. If that doesn't work I'll probably break down and get a set of mini-clippers. I'd rather get a proper table though, it's not my hands that get tired but my back takes a good beating.

Hopefully their coats stay nice, they were on Zignature food, the trout and salmon meal formula but it's 70 bucks for a 27 lb bag. Maeve has a sensitive tummy so we started her on that. However, between the 3 of them they really put some food away. We started mixing the Zignature with Costco's Nature's Domain brand salmon meal and sweet potato formula but we (wife and I) decided we would go to just the Costco stuff since it's $35 for a 35 lb bag. Between insurance and food we were spending over 200 a month so had to cut back somewhere. The Costco stuff seems like pretty good food though (Disclaimer: I'm not a dog nutritionist).

That's a good idea about the back of their heads, I never know what to do there so I just go to the back of their ears but I'll have to try blending it next time so it doesn't look so much like a bowl cut.
