Thread: Poodle Clippers

    Question Poodle Clippers

    Hi,

    What clippers would poodle owners recommend to use?

    Also, while poodles are puppies, how in the world do you keep them still enough to clip their face?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oster in my opinion are the very best quality for poodle clipping. Of course, a lot of people also like the Wahl brand of clippers.

    There are a huge variety of blade sizes for poodle coats, but you may only decide to get a couple of different blades and keep poodle in an easy pet-cut, so to speak.

    Most good reputable breeders will already have started getting their poodle puppies accustomed to being clipped prior to them going to their new homes.
    Is your puppy not liking you clipping his/her face? Or is this purely a rhetorical question?

    Thank you for your reply.

    It's not that the puppy doesn't like her face being clipped. I haven't even attempted it yet because she is so hyper active she never stops moving. I'm worried about her moving suddenly and copping the clippers it the eye or something like that.

    Can understand your worry there! Has she been introduced to clippers by the breeder prior to you purchasing her? It would help if she had, that's for sure.

    You can also do grooming ever day with her - without the clippers. get her used to you running your hands all over her body, feet and face. each time she stands quietly (for even a few moments) praise her (but CALMLY) and offer a treat if you desire to do treats in future.
    Hopefully she will be okay when her face is clipped. Hold gently but firmly, and make sure you are talking to her in a soothing, calm voice all the way through.

    Miss Jayne is currently a dog groomer, so I'm sure she can offer you plenty of advice and things to do.

    hello calicomary, puppies are tricky, they take a lot of patience, you can get her used to the clippers by turning on the clippers ( without a blade ) and gently running it over her body so she gets used to the noise and feel of them on her coat, i would do this a few times before attempting the clip the coat, also if they are up on a table while you are grooming she will learn to associate being up high to meaning i need to stand still. Lots of praise and i am all for rewards when she does it right, are you a groomer, if not maybe find a groomer who will show you how to do it first, i am in Adelaide i dont know if that is much help to you, good luck
