do they always get their whiskers shaved also? Seems so weird to me and I don like it all that much. What are some other options when it come to the face area?
LOL...WELL YOU HAVE NO CHOICE WHEN YOU SHAVE THE FACE. ITS WHISKER'S AND ALL. THERE IS A CUT THAT KEEPS THE FACE LOOKING LIKE A MUSTACHE. ITS NOT ALL THAT POODLE LOOKING TO ME, BUT SOME LIKE IT.do they always get their whiskers shaved also? Seems so weird to me and I don like it all that much. What are some other options when it come to the face area?
I dont care for that look only becasue it DOES resemble a Bischon(SP) I dont really like Bischons!! no offenseYup thats true about the whiskers, wish it wasnt though. I clipped Jazz's face last friday and already her whiskers are growing back and are pokey lol.
In case you are interested, here is a less than ideal but the best I had picture the teddy bear face I mentioned this morning. Not my best work, but hey if you met this dog you'd understand. Also the picture was taken before his face was completely finished.
I personally think this is a really really REALLY cute alternative to a clean face. Epecialy when said face is attached to a do who is crazy, hyper, super wiggly, acient, mean or otherwise difficult for the face type. Or one who belong to an owner who is any of the above. I can't count the number of poodle and poodle mix owners I get that say to me " I don't want it to look like a poodle" UmmmK I say. I often wonder why these people got a poodle if they didn't like the way poodles looked but oh well, I keep that to myself
Im glad you mentioned you use the #30 on his face. I just returned a new clipper set and picked up a #30. I have been doing the #10 since Ive been shaving Eli and want to go shorter. I like T's muzzle so that should do me good!Clip em off, the shorter the better!
I do T's f,f & t every week and absolutely hate it when his whiskers start poking me :biggrin: I have finished clipping him this morning and cause he hadn't been done for almost two weeks I only did him with a #15 blade in case he got any irritation and it's still way too long :rofl:. I was so scared when I first clipped his face but now I love the look of a #30 blade.
When Gunther came to me,his face,feet,private area were done with surgical blade # 40.
His skin is silvery grey and really showed through.
I also felt his private area was overexposed.
I like itjust a bit longer....also never leaves a clipper burn.
Well thats why I went with a 30 instead of 40. I did Sting's feet with the 40 a few days ago and they looked aweful until today. Im hoping the 30 will give me the look I desire with out razor burn. Im going to test it out on Eli though. lolI guess thats the issue I have with how Jazz's face, feet and tail look with the 40. I LOVE LOVE LOVE, her tail, it's so smooth and perdy. Her feet and face are another matter. For whatever reason it just doesn't look sooth, her feet are the worst I think. On her face the skin from about the corner of the eye forward is tha dark blueish color, same as her feet, but from that point back and down her throat it's a soft white/pink color. Whish she was the pinkish color all over.
