Default poodle clips

Do poodles always look like this:



or is all of that a specific clip?

My neighbor has a dog, that looks almost just like a maltese, and she says he is a french poodle. Is that just what they look like if they aren't clipped?

I've never heard of a "French Poodle" =/

That cut right there looks like a puppy cut. If I ever own a poodle it will be cut like that.

My grooming instructor had two toy Poodles who were kept in long coats and they did look much like Maltese. She used them as demos so we could learn how to blow out a poodle coat straight.

Is that how they get the poodle coats so foofy? Blowing them out?

Looks like either a puppy clip or a lamb clip. And yes, their coats gets fluffy when drying them. Either from drying and brushing or using a high velocity dryer.

So if you don't blow them out at all, their coat stays curly? Is there any reason most people don't do that? Is it just a breed standard thing, or is a clip better for them for some reason?

Yes, it stays curly and if you don't keep up with brushing it or getting him clipped every 5 to 6 weeks he'll start look shabby. This dog was just bathed and blown dry, it looks nice for the first week but then it starts to curl up. I'd love to say my dogs looked that way all the time but they don't. And if a person doesn't like a certain clip on their poodle then it's an easy fix. That's the great thing/worst thing about poodles and their coats, it grows back. They don't care what they look like.

Even most poodle in show clips get shaved down after they are done their show career.

No such thing as a "french poodle". Poodles are in fact a German breed and are just called "Poodles".

The term "french poodle" is a common one with people who don't know much about dog breeds. I've heard it MANY times down here in Australia.

Poodle coats are amazing, I've seen some incredible haircuts and the corded Poodles look gorgeous.

This has too be the most difficult way to maintain a poodles coat.
