I think it's less about how you hold the clippers and more about how you hold the foot. It's much easier on a standard poodle and I like to hold the foot while placing my finger under the webbing and pushing up on it so that I know where the skin is at all times and I just graze over it but I use a 40 blade so it doesnt take much touch to get the fur off, i would use a 10 blade while you're learning and getting comfortable getting in between the toes. I also gentle shave at an angle on the side of the toe if that makes sense and soem of the harder to r each stray hairs i honestly ignore them!

All my dogs are in pet trims so getting every bit of hair isn't a concern of mine. If I wanted to be picky I suppose i'd use a pair of small scissors to get some of the harder to reach hairs.

I might make a video of how I do it one of these days!
