I did Starla’s face and neck for the first time today. It’s a bit splotchy, and I accidentally went up a bit too much between her eyes, but surely as she gets bigger, we’ll both get better at it, right? Tomorrow: feet!

I feel like I’ve watched every poodle grooming video on YouTube over the past year or two. Lol! No she was just fine around her lips and the video stickied here was most helpful with that. I actually had more difficulty from her ears to her eye and then around her neck-which I think shows. It was hard to see what I was doing with that chest fluff in the way, and she was pretty squirrelly about me lifting up her ears and putting the clippers near them. So of course we’ll be practicing that more!

Good for you Starla! I have never gotten up the courage, nor do I have the tools, to do that! Bravo.

Thanks for all the compliments! As usual, I was my own worst critic and only seeing the flaws, but y’all have really made me feel better.

Kontiki, I admit I got a bravmini to tackle the face and feet. I bought everything (I thought) before she came home to do the grooming myself but just couldn’t figure out how I was going to do her petite little face with those giant-seeming clippers!
