Does anyone else here groom their dogs? I'm wanting to learn
how to groom my miniature poodle at home rather than taking
her to a groomer. Poodles have to be groomed as in brushed on
a regular basis. I have some cute cut ideas for when she is older. :D

I have two poodle mixes that I groom myself. I use a pin brush on them and have to brush them everyday or they get matted. I pretty much learned how to do the clipping from the dvd that came with the first set of clippers I bought. I use different ones (Kim Laube) now that go through their coats a lot better. After a lot of practice and dealing with a lot of goofy hack jobs I've gotten pretty good at it. :lol: Oh yeah, good scissors are a must, too!
Are you going to dress her up and put pretty bows in her hair? :D

I have Maddie who is a full blood mini poodle, and we also
have a poodle mix too. I watched some very useful videos
on youtube on grooming certain parts of the poodle, I studied
them and poodle photos closely. My grooming kit consists of
a pair of clippers, hair cutting scissors, a trim -a-pet precise
pet grooming appliance,nail clippers, soft brush, and hard
bristled brush.

For her, I am going for a basic puppy clip, seen here:

Will have to post pictures before and after, I actually am
clipping her today and am almost through, my clippers have
to charge up some though.

Of course, dressing her up and bows are a must-do!

I have no idea... I only was able to do basic grooming on my dogs... all dogs with shortish hair that was always VERY strait and VERY clean. :P

But some of those clips... are... well... interesting...

The cowboy one... :shock:
