They look gorgeous Kendal. I am in awe! I decided yesterday to give Phoebe a wee trim, her clipped coat has grown in to the point where tangles are just starting, so, inspired by all you wonderful talented people, I got my hubby's hair clippers out.....she was very patient with me (liver cake helped!) Think I may have quite a bit of bending in to do though Kendal :D

Kendal needs to go mobile with her dog grooming .. she could drive around with her girls and groom all our dogs ... guess it would be a long drive ... all around the country :) :)

Grooming

Is it hard to trim cockapoos yourself? My pet shop quoted €60 and said it is needed every 6-8 weeks! Ouch!! Can you get electric shears or scissors?

I use clippers to cut my dogs ... and if I can do it then anyone can :)

I am not a dog groomer just a dog owner and I love doing it at home ... I do like the cockapoo coat quite long but it is not practical for the muddy walks we go on, so I do clip my dogs when needed, to 1.5" all over and it looks lovely xxx

Looks like a good job to me.

I've started trimming Millie's eyebrows and under her feet. Still can't quite work out how to grab the hair in her ears for fear of hurting her !. Does anyone use an ear talc on the their dogs? I saw a dog groomer doing this but not sure what it is.

JoJo, what number guard do you use for 1.5" clip? Or is it different for dog clippers ( I used human ones :D)
On Phoebe - not Izzy!

Ali, I use human clippers too .. I will add some doggy ones to my next birthday wish list I think, but didn’t want to spend too much money to start with in case I wasn’t any good at it, or in case my dogs hated it ... so I use human Wahl clippers then purchased a 1.5 inch comb online for approx £4 .. perfect for my needs ... it does an excellent job ... and our local groomers only clipper 1 inch at the longest, so I am really pleased with my grooming efforts, it’s not professional but it’s neat, still a wavy in the 1.5 inch coat and more practical for our messy walks .. give it a go Ali ... I am doing a post for the blog, but remember I am no professional on this just sharing my experience with others. I hope this helps xx
