I have something poodle-ish (has terrier looking hair, too). Mommys Little Monster is currently rocking a mohawk. As soon as I have time, he is getting a short hair cut and we are going to leave that hawk, only a little thinner. Think Bikini Clip + mohawk. :o
For clippers: A-5s are good for part of the work. I have the A-5 Goldens. I just picked up the Laube Speed Feed trimmer which is a full size battery powered trimmer. His paws came out GREAT. It has an adjustable blade (size 40 - 9 I think). Stays alot cooler than A-5's.
BBird has a really nice writeup on the Laube trimmers on her groomblog.
My poodlish still likes to chase the turkeys, but they like to chase him, too.
ETA: when he's naughty, we call him the Terrier.
