Before giving the command to your dog, say his name loud and clear to get his attention; then say the command. Probably you will need to repeat the command few times. Try not to use negative reinforcement. Don’t command your dog to come to get punish because this will teach your dog that when he comes he will get punish, what will make it much harder to train him to do so. Make sure you keep any frustration out of your tone of your voice. If you start feeling frustrated, just take a short break. The dog can sense that you are frustrated and will start to associate the training sessions with your frustration. You can’t hide that you are unhappy from your dog. Dogs are able to feel emotion, so try to be calm and relaxed, firm and confident.
But as time goes by, clipping has evolved and became an art form and fashion for some people. The style you choose largely depends on you - your lifestyle, your willingness to spend time grooming and the purpose of your Poodle (appear in show rings, household pet, etc). If you are a proud owner and believes that your dog can shine in show rings, then you should choose a show clip for this is the only official clip allowed. Show clips could be continental clip or English saddle clip. In the continental clip, the face, throat, feet and part of the tail are shaved. The upper part of the legs is shaved leaving pompons around the ankles. There is also a pompon at the end of the tail. English saddle clip is similar to continental in which the face, throat, feet and part of the tail are shaved. The hindquarters are not shaved except for a curved shaved area on each flank and two shaved bands on each hindleg. A Poodle under one year old may be shown in the puppy clip. In the puppy clip, the face, throat, belly and base of the tail are shaved. There is a pompon on the end of the tail. Shaping of the coat is allowed for neatness.
How to Measure your Dog. A dogs coat size is measured from the base of the neck up to the base of the tail. Be sure that your dog is standing squarely on the ground with its head up to get an accurate measurement. Measure the dog from the base of the neck up to the end of the body while your dog is relaxed and looking ahead. It is better to order in even sizes that range from 8 inches to 28 inches. The size 13 inches is the only exception to this rule. If the tail of your dog goes up, round down. Also, if your dogs tail goes up, round up.
