OOPS.... is really all I can say after yesterdays clipper mishap.
Raleigh got a bath in the early afternoon so we could give him a long needed shave when he dried in the late afternoon.
It started out as good as it can when shaving a poodles face and feet. I use a 15 blade to do this (keep in mind the higher the number the shorter the cut).
Then it was time to do the rest of his body, which I do about once every 5 to 6 weeks, while his face and feet get done once every 2 to 3 weeks.
I loaded the clippers with what I thought was the #5 blade, BUT it was the #10. I went from the back of his neck to the base of his tail before I noticed something didn't seem right. My assistant Savanna figured out I had the wrong blade, but by then it was too late. So away we clipped. Now poor Raleigh is naked... but he wont need a full body clip for a long time!
