Default Yeesh, I'm glad hair grows back

Oh man, yesterday I decided to clip Mr. Layne (my Standard Poodle). I've been doing a longer clip than I intend to keep him in but I clip every few days. I want to just keep him so used to it that it's no big deal to him & I'm working with him to learn to be still & maybe take a nap. Hmmmm… I didn't have the blade I wanted & the combs just weren't doing a great job so I decided to skim the coat. Well... that was a dumb idea. I do this all the time with my Giant however different hair & she's a long time away from puppyhood.

No worries, no pinches, no nicks, no damage to the pup & the awful hair cut (uneven... all over the place) did more good than harm except to my eye because he just totally relaxed on the table & let me do whatever I wanted. It's the most relaxed he's ever been. Right now he's sort of in modified Giant Schnauzer like pajamas, lol. So I am very thankful that hair grows back. He looks like maybe a kid got ahold of him with scissors or a weed whacker got him. As for Mr. Hondo, he just looks at me like I did the best job. What a guy!

I tell myself training is more important than hair. Hair grows back but yeesh!

Absolutely, the experience is much more important than the appearance. Good job. You'll get better and better.

The training and experience you are getting grooming your dog is for more important than the finished cut.

Would love to see pictures I'm pretty sure we've all had a bad cut a two!

Haha, I would love to see photos too.

It's only hair and it grows back - you have the right attitude.

okay but they're not good photos. Mr. Layne is wiggly today Then again, it's an awful hair cut. It's a good thing Mr. Layne loves me! My Collie & Giant are so jealous. They keep photo bombing us. The bad cut makes him look like his legs are a mile long! There are sprigs of hair that are long & some that are very VERY short.

Edited to add: I put him on the table today & cleaned his ears & he did more kissing me than anything. it might be possible that he is starting to like this grooming stuff. Oh yes, he's a little discolored. He was lizard chasing in my flower beds... OH the dirt. Ugh.

What a cutie! It does look a little like a schnauzer or cocker spaniel style, but he's still adorable

I love that description and it brings back memories of Bella and I going thru the same thing with my early attempts at grooming. I called it the Poodle Grunge Clip.

It doesn’t look bad at all, I’ve done a lot worse ! Keep practicing, you’ll become a champ soon.
