    Coco is 6 months. I’ve been researching coat change and asking a lot of home grooming owners and pro groomers for insights into how they got through it without a default clip down - and honestly, it’s all over the map!! Currently, we do a weekly bathe / HV blow dry. I use doglyness immortelle...

    I’m not sure what to do!! We welcomed our 4th standard poodle, Stella, over years to our family during the quarantine. I’ve been determined to “do everything right” with this one so she will be an easy dog to groom, bring places, good with other people and dogs, etc. I started grooming both...

    I have a very sweet puppy named Juno (5 months old now!) and she lets me shave her feet but I have to cut her face short with the tiniest little scissors I’ve ever seen (I think they came in a manicure kit lol) because she gets wiggly and crazy if I try to use her clippers or even bigger...

    In the spirit of getting ready for a puppy (even though it'll be in a year's time) I'd like to have as much ready as possible. So, I'm looking for groomer recommendations in LA, ideally in Echo Park / Silver Lake area but please share even if they're further away!

    I am looking to get an HV dryer for my standard poodle. My breeder recommended the Flying Pig and the budget option and I see that a lot of people like it. I also found a dryer (shernbao) that is a similar price but has a higher HP here. Which one would you guys recommend?

    Hi all, Wondering why we don't shave young puppies down short at 8-12 weeks or so? It would be much easier to introduce brushing and blow drying if the hair didn't need a lot of it, i think? Then as the hair grows the puppy would be ready for longer sessions anyway? I realise they don't have...

    I am VERY new to poodles. I specifically like the standard poodle. They are the perfect dog for me when the time comes. I won’t be getting a poodle anytime soon, but I thought I would learn as much as possible in the mean time. So I’ll be asking all the dumb questions and probably use the wrong...

    Hi there! I have an 8 month old poodle and live in Wisconsin. I’ve always kept his puppy cut (regular groomings, just no shaves), but I’m wondering if for the winter he will need it longer? Or will we need to get him sweaters, coats, boots?

    Sorry if this is a silly question.. I'm a little new to the world of Poodles. Ive noticed most people have their dogs muzzle(face?) generally groomed to have really short hair. Is there a specific reason behind this look or is it just personal preference? Also.. is having their hair be the same...

    Hello, So I’ve been doing some research and have read many different opinions when it comes to keeping the show poodles coat strong and long. Does any one have any tips or ideas as to how best to treat your dogs hair. Should I be brushing his coat daily? Is banding the hair necessary? Is there...

    Hi all! My pup Rory was almost due for a groom right when everything (including groomers) got shut down due to COVID-19. With everything nonessential shut down indefinitely, I am now doubtful that any groomers will open up any time soon. I am coming to terms with the fact that that I am going to...

    When I pick my standard, Riley, up from the groomer her hair is so fluffy. However, when I bathe and blow dry her in between groomings she never turns out quite so fluffy. I sometimes get a little fluff, but I never quite get the same results.:ohwell: Is it something groomers put on her hair...
