Default Cording?

Since the whole puli thing, I've been thinking if I could find someone or eek, maybe do it myself...cord Pepe's fur? But the thing is he use to have curly poodle hair, but now he has wooley-ish type fur. Can this sort of fur be corded?

I have absolutely no clue how to go about it, but I have seen corded Poodles before. They're neat looking!

i should think he could be corded even if hes woolie, if a groomer cant help, tru searching for hair professionals, starting cords isnt much different than dreading a persons hair.

I know people who know how to dread hair, but not sure how willing they'll be to do a dog's hair lol, but doesn't hurt to ask....but I'll try asking groomers around here!

I require pictures if you do end up cording! I always wondered if the hair did that by itself or if someone had to help it be so pretty. Good to know it does take effort to get them looking so mop-like!

I'm still messing around with some different dying styles, so cording will probably be for next year. I mean a rasta panda dog? LOL. I found a groomer who is willing to do the panda look on Pepe, then going for the pony doodle look possibly for halloween, and after his hair grows back, I'll do cording for sure

I was thinking Pepe's hair length doesn't get all that long, but Valentino might be great for cording! So maybe I can do cording soon.

Little bit of interesting reading on some ways to start the cording process Standard Poodles - The Corded Poodle

I knew someone with one a few years ago.. a standard. It took forever for the coat to dry, and she had to do some serious blow drying as they can go moldy if not allowed to thoroughly dry (eww)

yes, cording (and dreads in people) when done right in order to look the way they SHOULD) require ALOT of care and upkeep and take a long time to get "established"

the biggest issue with cording is that when your done with the look its a case of cut them ALL off cause you simply cannot comb them out lol

Well on me it wouldn't be a good look lol...but on my dogs, I've shaved Pepe before and he still looked cute!

Would you think Valentino would look good corded? I've never seen a multi-colored corded dog before! Or shih tzu for that fact!
