HI everyone,

Im new to the site. I joined because I wanted some advice on cockapoo haircuts. My cockapoo Ted, has just had a haircut. It looks horrid, I'm so depressed. He's got a mullet and all his beard is off!!
I was wondering if anyone has any tips on cutting their faces myself and how long it takes to grow back!

We took Pebbles once to the groomer, shortly after we got her at one year... and not only did we not like the cut- she was so upset by being separated and the noise of the dryers- that I just started cutting her myself.
I use a thinning type shear on her face and beard area, and just regular sissors everywhere else.
For her paw pads i use a battery opperated clippers- they are quieter than the electric ones and dont scare her as much.
Just be careful around the eyes and mouth. a few weeks ago, after many times of cutting her with no mishaps - she decided to give me a kiss while i was trimming. I felt soo bad i got her tongue! IF it ever happens to anyone, i found just give them an ice cube. it helps to clot the cut as long as its small.
Yup that is now my plan ... i was so upset it was all i could do not to start crying when it happened. But she was so good, never winced ... but she jumped out of my lap really fast! lol.
