I was wondering how far down do I clip on a poodle's neck and at what angle, such as from the outside edge of the ear to the dip where the neck joins the chest, etc. Im leaving Mercury's coat fairly long for now untill he has enough of it to do something with. Right now its about 2-3in long in most places. I still haven't decided what clip Ill eventually but for now the longer the better. Does the shape and position of where to clip depend on what trim a spoo will be groomed into?
