  1. why did the white poodle have red near its eyes? is that with all white poodles? :/ that may change my decision on getting a white one..

  2. These aren't toy poodles, I have a toy french poodle and she's much smaller, I'm trying to learn how to groom her myself, she's a senior and getting older and the girl that used to groom her left so she's scared of someone new. ??

  3. Please don't use this video as a guide to grooming any breed. The steps are bathe, fluff dry, comb thru again and again and again as you do your trim. Also, for a pet I would use a 10, 15 or 30 on the feet depending on sensitivity of the dog. And yes I am a professional groomer and have been for 19 years.

  4. I love dog movies online. It usually takes up so much of my work day. But the majority of folks are slowly KILLING their pet dogs (without noticing it)! The garbage which they put in pet food provokes cancer malignancy and tends to make dogs die young. I figured that out the difficult way. My family dog passed away at 6. To save your pet’s life you have to check out Double Life Dog Diet (Try looking in Google.)

  5. OMG, this is horrible. Who dare you post such a video? You work is horrible. I almost died when you started cutting the top knot …

  6. Agree. This video us horrible.i would never cut a poodle with out brushing out first especially when doing the top knot..little white poodles hair cut looked very sloppy

  7. I'm not a groomer, I've had my toy poodle is 6 months old now and I did a better job than this… Maybe looking for advice on here isn't the best bet =P

  8. when i cut my dogs fur… he always shake his head… im scared that i could cut up his face and pain happen.. my dog name: louis
    1 in a half year.. a male dog
