The Lamb cut (see Figure 14-3) is the pet version of the (Poodle) Puppy clip (see the "Poodle show clips" section later on). The face, feet, throat, and base of the tail are shaved, and the rest of the tail is trimmed in a pompom. To groom your Poodle in a Lamb cut, try the following:
1. Shave your dog's face using a No. 10 or No. 15 blade.
Work away from the eyes and down toward the base of the throat.
2. Clip the abdomen using a No. 10 blade.
3. Shave your dog's feet and the base of the tail using a No. 10 or No. 15 blade.
4. Shape the dog's body according to Figure 14-3 using a No. 4, No. 5, or No. 7 blade.
