SECOND PUPPY/PUPPY LION CLIP Originally named the Second Puppy, this trim was launched in the 1970’s in the U.K and Scandinavian countries as a transitional clip before the dog was cut out in Continental or English saddle. It has become a very popular show trim these days within the FCI countries as well as the U.K and Australia. It is also often seen at grooming competitions. Anders and Mel will give you the background and demo this three dimensional clip – how to make the most of it!

Anders Rosell

Poodle Styles from the Poodle Master

MODERN CLIP/TERRIER/SCANDINAVIAN A clip that has many names and often confused by groomers. It was originally launched as the Toilette 1960. A very smart and sporty looking clip which became very popular in the Scandinavian show rings in the 70’s. The trim also had a terrier version with clipped ears and tail. Today this trim is defined by the FCI breed standard as the “Toilette Modern” (when the dog has full length ears and a tail pom-pon) and Terrier/Scandinavian Clip. It is basically the same clip with 3 different names, not to be mistaken with the German clip which is a pet clip. Anders will give you the background to this clip with helpful hints how to make the most of it in your salons.
