GROOMING YOUR STANDARD POODLE DOG AT HOME
I have read your advice on grooming and learned so much. Your experience and guidance is always clear and professionally presented.
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions.
I love your website. I began looking at your site while I was waiting for my girl to be born, and I have found it extremely informative. Poodles, standards in particular, are such a great and versatile breed but good mentoring is a definite requirement for the neophyte. Which I am.
One of the first things I learned and implemented was – and I can’t remember what you all it – laying her down on her back between my legs and getting her accustomed to being handled. What a valuable lesson. Not only is she agreeable to the grooming process, she earned her Canine Good Citizen title at 9 months old. Being handled is the hardest thing for puppies to calmly accept.
Your generosity is very much appreciated.
