Now I'm going to show you how to hold the, hold the poodles paws, so that you can clip it and do it comfortably. Rosie's very good, sometimes you'll get a poodle that's not very good and they'll pull. But if you, if you hold the paw this way we can get underneath and if you pull it forward we can get the front of the paw. So we're going to start with the bottom of the paw and if you can see that, it's a little bit ticklish, but you pull the, the toes apart and you can get a real clean cut on the inside of the foot. This is a fifteen blade that I'm using. And then you want to go in between the toes. We start this way; we're going against the grain of the hair. There you go Rosie. Alongside the nail. Here. Here. I like to put my finger between the webbing here, because their webbing can get cut very easily. And you finish all the toes like so. And then start with the front, same with the, you put the, your finger between the webbing, so you're not going to cut the webbing. And Rosie's foot is on the way to being nice and clean.
