Rusty the Poodle


This week’s Klip Joint dog of the week is Rusty, an apricot poodle. Rusty has a lot of personality and was very curious about the camera.

Unlike most dogs which have double coats, poodles have a single layer coat (no undercoat is present) composed of dense, curly fur that sheds minimally. They could be considered hypoallergenic (though not completely allergen free). The poodle does shed, but instead of the fur coming off the dog, it becomes tangled in the surrounding hair. This can lead to matting without proper care.

Texture ranges from coarse and woolly to soft and wavy. Poodle show clips require many hours of brushing and care per week. Poodles are usually clipped down into lower-maintenance cuts as soon as their show careers are over. Pet clips are much less elaborate than show and require much less maintenance. A pet owner can anticipate grooming a poodle every six to eight weeks.

No matter what breed of dog you have, Klip Joint can make it look like a champion! Call us today for an appointment.

    You know it’s funny because I don’t care much for poodles. But when they get clipped like this and are show-ready, I think they are one of the most gorgeous dogs out there.
