Hi, this is Sammi at the Utah Animal Care Center in West Bountiful, Utah. I'm here to talk to you today about the different sort of styles that you can groom your poodle. We have Tia here to help us demonstrate. Some of the most common cuts are the one she is in, is the continental cut. You'll leave the body long and fluffy. You'll want to shave the face, the throat, the legs, the feet, the tail, and the rear up to the flank. It's also optional to leave two pom-poms, but those may also be shaved. You'll leave the bracelets on all four ankles. Another common cut would be the retriever cut. It is short along the entire body, with a long topknot, shaving of the feet, face, and base of the tail. There's also the lamb cut. It's a short body transitioning into a longer neck, chest, and legs, with the face, feet, and base of the tail shaved. Another common one would be the puppy cut, which is a rendition of the lamb cut, it's just left slightly longer. There's also the teddy bear cut, which is the same length all over, with no shaving of the face, feet, or tail. For male poodles, there are all sorts of different variations of mustaches and goatees that you may also leave on them to give them a little bit different look. With poodles, there's many different cuts you can do. You can play around. A lot of times, on male poodles, they like to leave mohawks. There are also many sort of different cuts that you may leave the bracelets on as well.
