We don't do- doodles!!!

|I keep my black poodles in a Continental because I LOVE it and the blacks look so nice with it. I do modify it so they have a scissored topknot and I keep the neck and shoulders shorter.
I HATE it on the whites and reds so they stay in a "normal" kennel cut.
With baby poodles I always start with TWO topknots, one over each eye, until it's long enough to stay up in the middle. I usually start at about 15 weeks.
And, my cresteds wear "ponies" to keep the crest out of their eyes in the warm weather. I use those nylon soft loops since the elastic breaks the coat too easily.
