How to Groom Your Maltipoo or Poodle X at Home
In today's grooming session, Winston, the charming Maltipoo, takes center stage. Handled by skilled professional dog groomer Sacha Bertagnon, this adorable pup is about to receive a full grooming makeover in our Fulham Grooming Boutique. Winston has already enjoyed a soothing bath, brush, a thorough blow-dry, and had his nails expertly trimmed. Now, it's time for the meticulous grooming process, featuring a number five comb attachment and the artistry of scissor work. Let's delve into this pampering transformation and witness Winston's adorable Le Wag transformation unfold.
When it comes to grooming a delightful pup like Winston, attention to detail is key. I want to create a look that's not only charming but also practical and easy to maintain.
For Winston's legs, I prefer the finesse of scissors over clippers. This allows me to carefully sculpt each leg, ensuring a polished finish without going too short. I always aim for that perfect balance – a well-groomed appearance that still looks natural.
Moving on to the belly area, I'll use scissors extensively. This part often requires meticulous work. I'll ensure that every detail is addressed, and any stray hairs are trimmed away.
Now, let's focus on Winston's head and face. This is where his personality truly shines through. By starting around the ears and working my way down, I can shape his face to accentuate his endearing features. Remember, grooming the muzzle short is essential, especially for dogs like Winston who may pant or have their tongues out frequently. It's both for their comfort and safety.
Now, let's talk about those adorable ears. We want to give them that cute Pom-Pom shape. It starts with combing the ears, trimming the top, and using thinning shears to create that fluffy and natural appearance.
As we work on the other side of Winston's face, the same principles apply. Gentle and patient grooming ensures a harmonious and balanced look. I like to keep things symmetrical, so both sides are equally charming.
Now, we're almost done. Winston is getting that cute teddy bear look. It's a length that's not only charming but also manageable. This style is perfect for Winston, and it suits both summer and winter, offering a practical yet adorable appearance.
Remember, grooming should be an enjoyable experience for both you and your furry friend. Take your time, be patient, and always prioritize their comfort.
