I just adopted a 13 year old toy poodle that many says looks straggly. I think hes adorable like a Rasta man but ive given him a few baths and some mats cut out and shaved his feet and face and pulled much hair with wax out of his ears. I have great shaver i do all my other 4 dogs with during summer. Im not a poodle expert on grooming. I thought id take him for professional grooming one time to get outline. I went on you tube and numerous other forums to see how to groom. Not sure especially about his tail how to make a pom pom i cut much of the hair off base and left top and looks naked and not good and no pom pom. The groomers independent are overwhelmed not sure why at this time. I much prefer to do it myself but want to go one time but he seems nervous around others i just adopted him and hes super clingy, please help with grooming advice all appreciated. I love poodle look but had to shave his face due to mats-looks good so will try a normal poodle cut any advice welcome please.
