What Are Some Different Grooming Cuts for Poodles?


Common poodle grooming cuts include the bikini, Continental, puppy, lamb and kennel clips. The town and country clip is also popular, but it cannot be used on dogs in the show ring. A poodle's curly coat can also be corded like a Komondor's coat.

Most people are familiar with the Continental clip, which features poms on the foot and hips of the poodle while the rest of the leg, face and most of the body are completely shaved. There are also variations of most standard cuts. The Continental clip, for example, looks very similar to the less popular lion clip, the English saddle clip, the modified Continental clip and the poodle cut.
