Standard Poodle Grooming
A poodle is a beautiful dog. However, unless you plan to keep them in a short clip, you will need to learn how to brush him daily and keep his coat from matting. A poodle sheds very infrequent which is a plus and they are a hypoallergenic dog meaning they are a great pet for people who have allergies to other dogs. Yet brushing and grooming your poodle is a big part of maintaining your pet. As I mentioned before if you are not consistently brushing your poodle they can become very matted. In the event you do not brush and comb your poodles hair completely to the skin they will become matted and will need to be shaved. Most poodle owners opt to keep a short coat. Some owners learn to do the clipping and trimming themselves while others prefer to take the dog to a professional groomer every four to six weeks for a bath, grooming and nail trim.
