Ive no before pictures on my iPad because ddog hasn't been allowed to have more than 5 weeks of hair growth for the last 4 yrs . Does your poodle bark a lot at the groomers OP ,as when I picked mine up from his bath on Tuesday it was really busy and much noisier than normal and when I said that to one of the groomers her response was ' we've got poodles in ' .

No Floral my poodle rarely barks at all she whines

I groom her myself, which is why shes not looking her best at the moment, I experimented with poodle feet and scissoring. Scissoring is really hard!

Aww look at her little poodly face!

Impressed you can do your own grooming - we have a 18 week old labradoodle with a curly coat who had his face trimmed at the weekend and I've no idea how she did it! Maybe never once he's calmed down a bit!

No longer with us but before as an 8 week old puppy

We tried to keep her knot free but considering her fondness for puddles it wasn't happening

Had to get her clipped and this was the end result. Bye bye dark owl eyes

Before his bath after a lovely time rolling around in cow shit angry.. and after his bath grin

Slimbob that after photo is amazing!

Soubriquet my poodle has a fondness for muddy puddles too. She ends up having to have a bath each time because the mud doesn't brush out. The blaster/dryer thingy I bought is the best thing ever.

Oh, I wasn't clear in my op. The only difference between the before pic and the after pic is that I put two hair bobbles in her topknot so that she could see.

weegiemum Thu 06-Oct-16 17:11:09

LOL at the hair bobbles!!

Deadnettle Thu 06-Oct-16 17:29:13

Here weegiemum photos of her from the side and back so that you can see the amazingness of her topknot!

We need a pic of your pup!

Before and after being hand stripped. The photos don't really do it justice but there is a big difference.

Monty, before groomers and after..

Deadnettle Fri 07-Oct-16 12:39:28

allfurcoat I like your dogs jumper!

Snoopy I'm always amazed at how different border terriers look after handstripping.

Waitrose Monty's ears are impressive!

allfurcoatnoknickers Fri 07-Oct-16 16:21:08

deadnettle Thank you! Ddog loves it, it's very soft and keeps her bald tummy war in the depths of winter.

WaitrosePigeon Fri 07-Oct-16 16:29:44

They are bigger than his head grin

He's only 9 months though so maybe he will grow into them..

Deadnettle Fri 07-Oct-16 16:53:42

Allfurcoat my dog gets cold in the winter and I am always tempted to get her a jumper but I think it would just cause her to get matted sad She does have a coat but thats more because it takes so long for her to dry than because its cold.

Waitrose is it wrong for me to hope he never grows into his ears?

BestIsWest Fri 07-Oct-16 20:34:04

Allfurcoat is that really the same dog in those pics?

BestIsWest Fri 07-Oct-16 20:37:19

Here's ours before his first proper cut and after.

insan1tyscartching Fri 07-Oct-16 21:14:59

I'm lurking to coo at gratuitous photos of poodles blush Eric is clipped every six weeks so I'll get a photo and post again in a week or so after his clip. He's got a dodgy moustache just now and anything more than six weeks means his hair covers his eyes, he is clipped close mostly because of his delight at getting wet, dirty and smelly though as it cuts down on the drying time.

insan1tyscartching Fri 07-Oct-16 21:23:31

"Floral" the groomers say Eric is very vocal blush he doesn't bark as such but he whines, yips, growls, purrs, snuffs and snorts and sneezes, all day to me in response to me speaking to him so think he does the same there. He does a fantastic miaow which has the groomers in stitches too. Of course when he hears our car pull up he squeals as well.

Insan1ty was it you who loves shaved poodle feet? When I last groomed the dog I shaved her feet and they are so tiny and cute.

insan1tyscartching Fri 07-Oct-16 21:57:36

I really love poodles and yes I love their tippy toes. If I has one it would have to have the works with a big top knot, tippy toes and a pompom tail blush which is probably the reason we have a poodle cross at dh's insistence although it doesn't stop me looking for a female miniature rescue poodle most weeks.

Deadnettle Fri 07-Oct-16 22:04:01

Here insan1ty poodle pictures just for you!grin

Please excuse the badly shaved feet, it was the first time I had ever done them!
