It is not recommended to use a razor directly for shaving sensitive parts of the poodle, such as the belly and physiological organs, because the skin in these areas is thin, and it is easy to get red, swollen, or allergic during the contact of the razor. Therefore, when shaving these areas, it is better not to let the razor directly contact the poodle’s skin. It is recommended to wear an isolation brush and other things.
