For some people grooming a Standard Poodle can be very scary. But I groomed Miniature Horses for 9 years, so the Poodle is EASY =)

I'm going to share with you the grooming "stuff" that I use. Just to give you an idea of what you may need for your Poodle Grooming needs...

First I use an old desk for my grooming table. My Aunt gave it to me and it works perfectly and I didn't have to pay for it!!
I bought a rubber welcome mat and put it upside down on the top of the desk. It gives Gentry something to hold onto. I put all my grooming stuff in the drawers (my blades, blade cleaner, scissors, ect.)

I have an old pin brush that I'm using now...
And a Greyhound comb. I LOVE my Greyhound comb =)

I'm saving my mula to buy one of these brushes...
I love my Andis two speed clippers. They make my job sooo much easier.

I love this spray. It's a nice skin conditioner and it smells soooo good...

I spray this on Gentry whether he is wet or dry. It keeps his skin nice and his hair silky!

And last but NOT least, my nail grinder!! This thing is awesome! Soooo much better than nail clippers. Neither of my dogs mind when I do their nails now.
I got mine from Pet Edge. It's a great deal.

To make brushing easier I taught Gentry to lay down flat on the floor. I brush him like this and do his nails this way.

And Gentry all done!
