Standards, Mini's and Toys.
The Poodle coat takes regular brushing AND COMBING to obtain a full time fluffy look. Most poodles of smaller than 15" do best kept in a one inch or less haircut. Trimming a Standard above an inch long is difficult and time consuming to maintain, and must be clipped every 4 to 6 weeks for optimal appearance and health
Long Hair: Specialty de-shedding shampoo opens follicles allowing dead coat to be released. A 15 min soak in a special conditioner closes the follicles and holds in live healthy coat
Getting the shampoo thoroughly soaked into the coat, down to the skin, is the trick to getting this coat squeaky clean.
Once completely dry, the coat will quickly release most of it's dead shedding hair
De-shed efforts are always first and foremost. A quality shampoo and a thorough brushing and combing can do wonders, but some times I'll use a furminator if it is not too thick or long haired.
