This is the first time back in months. I don't come on a lot because I find there is to much contention. Certain members get banned for being honest and too many hateful comments. I was getting stomach aches when I came on. I hooked up with a few on Facebook and found other forums that are kind and supportive while being honest.

congratulations on getting a Standard Poodle. I groom Black at home on my own. I might not be the best for answers but a lot of people do not come to this forum. You could try posting in grooming forum for more answers. I am not great at grooming every day it is time consuming. I usually keep Black trimmed short. I have never had bad knots I could not deal with. The best thing I can say is get a good spray on conditioner it will make all the difference. I groom Black usually on the face and paws and part of tail with a #10 blade. I also use a #10 blade for a sanitary clip also. His body I use a #7 blade but would prefer a #5. This makes a nice sporty clip that is manageable. I usually use a slicker brush and metal comb to keep Black looking nice and tangle free. If his hair gets too long the slicker brush though just goes over the top and knots form underneath I learned this from experience so also use a comb to make sure you get any mats that start forming. Black is prone to ear infections. I keep his ears plucked. I have some curved hemostats that I use to get a good grip on the hair deeper in the canal. I just use my fingers for the easy to get stuff. I also use a little flashlight to make sure I pull only hair and do not hurt him. Also do not grab too much hair at once as it will hurt a lot. He recently got a deep clean from the vet and I found I am not using enough cleaner in his ears enough of the time. I have been told by his vet to be using a ear cleaner 2 times a week but he has severe infections. If he did not I would probably do it maybe once a week. Poodle's are a lot of fun and worth the effert to keep them groomed. I hope you enjoy your new dog when he comes.

Black does this as a form of affection. I know it is not anxiety as a lot of the time is when we are relaxing and he is content.

All my dogs are mouthers. Black when I first got him would do a grooming nibble that pinched and hurt. I would give him a blanket, stuffy or pillow to do it on. He now when he gets affectionate will nibble on a cloth or something next to you. I do not have a problem with him biting except if a teen girl is teasing him then he will nip the butt. I have teen girls and training them is harder than training dogs. My cockapoo Daisy will mouth in play but releases right away and is very soft. Every dog I have owned has mouthed and I have not been bit by them. I can see that some dogs or homes that might be a problem but it has not been in my home. A few people were startled when Black came up and started nibbling the couch next to them but then I explained. I play a catch game with my dogs that we chase and tap the dogs and they try to catch us. if caught they will mouth let go and run for us to chase them. They settle down when I say and if they get to rambunctious I do some obedience and they calm down. No one outside of family is allowed to chase play with my dogs and my kids no how to stop it. Well except for a silly teen girl that is when he nips her butt and she calms down which he follows suit. Each dog is different and each home so what is ok in one home is not in another. My dogs Black and Daisy are dogs who see me as a clear head of home. Charlie is another matter and I do not ruff play with him much.

Black has ruff wear and they fit well. I like them and they do have a special program so SD can get 1/2 off.

Bella the responses on this thread bothered me also. My son is not much of a runner. He will run to a hiding place then stay put. It is not always easy to find him. Until someone lives in our shoes they will not understand. Even then each child on spectrum is different. I hope the original poster is doing well with her pup.

Daisy I am glad that you have had success in teaching gymnastics to children on the Autism spectrum. But you are wrong not all can be taught to not run away. You have the children what 30 min. to hour. It is different when you have the child for hours on end and day in and day out. The children in the home environment will have more chances to go through meltdowns highs and lows. Many children on spectrum can be taught not to run away but not all. I am glad that your experience has been different though. A few hours teaching a Autistic child does not make it where you know all about the spectrum.

Black sleep whines I feel so bad for him when he does like he is being hurt. I usually pet and touch him till he calms he is in a deep sleep when this happens and does not wake easy.
