Ben's fur was getting pretty long, so we got him a shorter cut just in time for the hot summer months! Take a look:









As you can tell, it's hard to get a good picture of him. I think he's camera shy! :eek:

I think we just asked for a shave. However, we specifically said not to give him a poodle cut. So it wasn't too short, and they kept his face square instead of pointed.

make sure you tell them if you want the beard, ears or tail kept long or they will just take all the haire off. if need be take in a photo you like and show them.

It's funny because I was just wondering what to say to the groomer when I go and get Bobby trimmed.

I don't want him shaved, but like to keep him looking as he did as a pup - sort of wavy all over, although his tail looks like a bit like a pipe cleaner so I dont they could do much with that anyway :)

i dont think i know anyone who was happy with their cockapoos first hair cut.

sadly he will never look they way he did as a puppy. his coat will change and become more curly. his tail will growand be lovely and flowty.

best tip for groomers is to look at dogs in the park or at training classes and if a dog has a cut you like then ask where they got them cut.


also if you can get photos of what you like then that will help a good groomer to understand what you want.
