Ok I just recently saw that tasseled ears are an actual variation of the poodle ear and have been dying to try them ever since. Got my first owner to allow me to do them (cause the dogs ears were matted except for the tip) and they turned out nice but i'm not sure if I did them the way i was supposed to. I did a search but didn't come up with a description on this so if anyone could help me out or point me in the right direction I would be thrilled. A picture would be the epitome of happiness. I would like to know about how long past the ear should i do the tassel (teardrop or diamond) and is their a trick to cutting them or do i just play around with thinners till they look cute? Thankyou very much.

never done them on a poodle, but i do a lot of bedlingtons, i start with the up-side-down v on the tip of the ear, shave the rest of the ear, then scissor in a diamond shape (i just use reg shears) sometimes bevel it a bit. the length, i would just go by the type of trim and what looks proportionate, the bedli tassles are not real long, you may want to leave more length on the poodle, there may be a pic in the terrier section

Go to the photo album and click on "Other Photos" At the top of the list will be two threads on poodle tassels posted by thistle.

except that many if not most of those photos have been replaced since the thread was posted... some cuties but fewer tassels.
I do my Mini's tassels just like a Bedlington; I've also had great results simply doing 'Spaniel' ears and trimming the ends either straight across or 'half-round'(especially on larger Minis/ Standards, I don't like the spaniel-ear look as much on most Toys)

I do an inverted "V" about 2 thirds the way down the ear, ajust acording to lenght of the leather. I prefer to leave the tassels long but if the ears are always matted or the owner wants them short I trim them straight across the bottom. I do a couple of standards with tassels. They look ok I don't really like them on the smaller poodles.
