Pets and exhibition of poodle haircuts
Poodle... Beautiful, playful, clever and extremely elegant dog. And if the playfulness and intelligence of this breed can be seen from the first minute, then the beauty and elegance of give, of course, haircuts. Poodles should be trimmed regularly. And there are haircuts "home" (hygienic) and exhibition (official). The greatest variety of haircuts can be seen, of course, exhibitions. Three classic variants, we'll talk later. And now a little about home haircuts poodle.
The mere word "domestic" somehow makes us think that it is something simple and unpretentious. Simple – Yes, simple – Yes, but still giving the elegance and most importantly – helping to maintain hygiene. It is important to remember that even homemade poodle haircuts must be neat, otherwise the animal will just be disfigured, and the beauty will remain only remnants.
Under the preparatory (or hygienic, home) haircut refers to the haircut of the face, legs (the tips), abdomen, base of the host and, of course, the genitals. The best tool for the job – clipper poodle. Sometimes breeders stop on conventional typewriters with accessories. Wears it like a dog after a bath, once a month. If you are a beginner, leave such work to professionals-grumer. Watching them work, you will eventually learn to cut themselves.
But if with hygienic haircut can be managed even by not very experienced owner, the exhibition of poodle haircuts require real professionalism. Is not only the appearance of even small tangles (a coat of a poodle is prone to their formation), but the extra millimeters of wool (or their shortage).
For example, one of the most common haircuts of the exhibition entitled "the lion" involves only long hair near the withers and the head, and grows the wool for months! So to teach your dog to scissors, the clipper and the comb in advance need since childhood, otherwise, "over the shop" will cost you a lot of nerves not only you and the groomer but the dog.
Now consider the main exhibition haircuts poodles (see photo opposite).
The "Scandinavian lion". Now there are two versions of this haircut. Changes dictated by fashion, or rather fashion masters. Making the hind legs of a poodle, recently accepted have cut off the wool from the back surface, in order to show (highlight) the corners of the hock.
Now on the hips wool almost do not touch, except a little trimmed. It should be noted that this kind of haircut is most common because it helps to hide minor errors structure of the dog and at the same time flattering.
"Modern" (another name — "under the lamb") involves the complete removal of fur from the muzzle, cheeks, throat, and paws. Belly shorn to the middle (for a second pair of nipples in females and in a couple of centimeters from the penis in males), and tail – one-third at the base. Mustache on the muzzle left. Ears not cut. Obligatory "crown", hanging over the eyes. A very important haircut is the gradual transition from the back to the pants, the contours of the rear legs (bottom-they should be wide). The tail is made in the form of a pompon. Carefully prestigiosa paws with fingers (the expert should be able to see the dog's nails).
"Puppy grooming" close to the "art Nouveau". But because the wool hasn't grown, mane almost not cut. Admission to the ring with that haircut possible only up to 18 months.
There are many haircuts, but not every expert recognizes that. The two above – classic. They must be executed flawlessly, with observance of the smallest detail. The mixing of styles, as a wrong haircut can lead to temporary suspension or to leave the dog without an evaluation.
