In Poodles, the clip known as the “lamb cut” sees the dog’s face, tail, and feet shaved, but its topknot and tail are basically the same length as the dog’s hair elsewhere on the body, and that can be any length the groomer chooses. Some elect to leave hair on the dog’s legs a little longer so that they don’t appear to resemble toothpicks. If so, this clip is also called the kennel, or utility clip.
Monsieur Marcelis acknowledged as the creator of the ‘Lamb Clip’ for Poodles which he did for a Dutch Princess in 1932, but we welcome the insights of Poodle folks.
