Grooming is essential for Poodles and, because they can require a clipping every 6 to 8 weeks, it is important to have the appropriate grooming tools, tools that are up to the job.

Now of course, we need to consider the type of coat that your pooch is sporting.

Dogs can have double coats or single layer coats. The Poodle falls into the latter category. So there is no need to deal with that under layer coat that is typical of the double-coated breeds. This explains why shedding is minimal with Poodle breeds.

It can also explain why people who are highly sensitive to dog hair often choose this breed. Whilst shedding is minimal compared to other dog breeds, matting can be a concern.

Your Poodle, unless it is a mix, probably belongs to one of these categories:

  • Standard Poodle
  • Miniature Poodle
  • Toy Poodle

So, what are the most suitable dog clippers for Poodles?

The answer to this question depends on you and your dog’s requirements.

Some of the most popular Poodle dog clippers, would have to be the Andis clippers.

The natural beauty of the Pomeranian made the breed a favorite in Queen Victoria’s court and this is due in no small part to their lustrous signature, two-layered coat:

There is the undercoat, a dense thicket of softest fur. And then this undercoat is protected by an outer layer of long, straight coarse hair. It’s that combo platter that creates their trademark puffiness and dimension. That puffy foundation gives owners and groomers a number of styling options to work with.
