    Does anyone have any tips on prepping a softer coat for scissoring? My toy girls coat is thick but soft, what products do you prefer? So far been recommended Chris Christensen thick n thicker, spectrum one and more but wondering what one out of the texturizing products is the best. Is there ways...

    What clips/styles would everyone recommend for a poodle with a bad coat? (Soft and not thick) like puppy coat. Shes 1 now, just turned but hasn't really gotten adult coat sadly, so thinking her coat might just be sh*t. Still wanna put her into a fun trim tho, something that is achieveable and...

    Do folks have thoughts about bathing a standard outside in the summer? Given that it's about 90 degree outside, is it reasonable to give my dog an outdoor bath? I've set up a sunshade over my patio area. It would be so much easier to bathe them outside! But I'm thinking there must be some...

    I am a new Spoo owner and my almost 5 mo old pup will be getting her first professional groom next week. I live in the states in the Mid-Atlantic so we can get some hot and humid heat waves during the summer. I like the Miami / Bikini look, but I don't get why they leave hair around the ankles...

    Does dematting spray help with brushing and stopping matts from becoming worse? Ive been keeping up on brushing everyday but still sometimes there are some tiny knots that i have to brush out (thankfully not as bad as before, brushing is the key) and it still pulls on his skin a bit. Will...

    So i have an all white mpoo and heard from his groomer that she uses a whitening shampoo on him and other white dogs. I bought one recently from a grooming shop, nature’s specialty brand (its local, i wanted to help out a local business) and the change is minimal. I wanted to know if it is even...

    I just got my little boy groomed. Got him his summer cut. But now he won't stop scratching. I've noticed this happening after almost every time we groom him and my husband usually gives him a bath with the shampoo we normally use and it helps. Could he be allergic to what the groomers are using...

    Soooo last i posted we cut his hair short. He ruined the CC pin brush in record time so i just bought this new one at ikea. Ive been rewarding with beef liver and jerky treats, stopping when hes had enough, And LOOOK! I can only give yall my deepest thanks for all the help you’ve given me and...
  9. Poodle Grooming
    Ive posted about my brushing woes here before and i decided to start from scratch. He got groomed short. And more poodle-like if that makes sense. So not so teddy bear. Im about to start brushing him every day now so we dont get matting again and maybe this way he understands that brushing isnt...

    I have a almost one year old Standard poodle female, except for her face being shaved by the groomer her hair as never been cut. When we just got her I asked the groomer when I could schedule her first cut, he told me that you were not supposed to cut their hair before they had their full...

    Hi guys! This is my first post - I have been enjoying reading and learning as my spoo puppy grows. He is 13 months old, and I am mortified to admit that he recently got a bunch of mats in his bracelets and ears…and we didn’t catch it quickly because they were close to the skin underneath nice...
  12. Poodle Grooming
    (Not my pics) I was wondering if anyone knew what either of these cuts are called. The first one is my favorite, the second one I love too (minus the paws) i prefer rounded paws.

    Hi, I'll be getting my first standard poodle in a few months for conformation and was wondering if anyone had any experience with certain crates pulling out their poodle's hair. (When in a conti) Would it be better to use a plastic sided crate or a fabric sided crate instead? Would a fabric...
  15. Poodle Health
    My poor spoo--she is 10 months old and my husband lost his job so I was trying to save money by not taking her to the groomer too often. It wound up being nearly 4 months since her last appointment (I was going to take her earlier but then she had her first heat and that added an additional...

    I tried to pluck my pup’s ears the other day because they were a bit smelly. he doesn’t like the powder and the hemostats are impossible to use because he keeps moving, I did half a ear but the inner fluffy is still there ,and gave a treat every time I plucked but because he kept making crying...

    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...
  18. Poodle Grooming
    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...
  19. Poodle Grooming
    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...
