Poodle Dog Clippers and Accessories
Originally bred as a water dog the poodle comes in at least three different sizes; the Standard, Miniature and the Toy. Believed to have originated in Germany, it was known as the 'Pudelhund', which is derived from the German verb meaning to “splash about".
The breed was standardised in France where it was commonly used as a water retriever. Their moisture resistant coats were perfect when required to jump into the water to fetch waterfowl.
Not only is the Poodle good for retrieving but also skilful in agility, obedience, tracking and even herding. The Poodle is an affectionate family dog that is renowned for its playful yet dignified personality. Protective of their family environment, the Poodle will normally let you know if there are any intruders around!
Coat types of this well balanced and elegant dog are usually long and curly and come in many colours including many shades of grey, brown, tan and white. The outline of the Poodle should be velvet smooth and the coat needs to be kept mat free.
Some show dogs are professionally hand scissored but more commonly you will find that the family pet is clipped as it is a fast and effective way of keeping the coat neat and tidy. For this type of coat you will need a professional style A5 dog clipper to help tackle such a dense coat.
The Masterclip Poodle Dog clipper has been designed to give you all the right grooming products to clip your dog in the comfort of your own home. The blade that is attached to the dog clipper can be used for all the short cut trimming such as around the face, feet and back end.
The other two body blades that are included in the Masterclip Poodle dog clipper set are skip tooth blades offering a 6mm and 9mm rough cut trim. The teeth on the back of a skip tooth blade are spread further apart than most finishing blades, which helps feed the coat into the clipper head.
Inferior dog clippers with plastic comb guides are not suitable for this coat type as they are not robust enough to handle the thick unruly coat of the poodle. See below for our complete range of Poodle dog clippers, trimmers, blades and grooming accessories that are best suited to this breed.
