Every dog deserves to look spectacular! Styling them in the most popular grooming clips is one way to achieve this. Here are a few breed and non breed specific trims for Fido that are sure to have heads turning and finger’s pointing….in a good way!
Golden Retriever: A popular clip for the Golden Retriever is the Teddy Bear Cut. The coat will be 1 inch or longer over the body. The hand-scissored cut leaves the pups hair with a fluffy finish which gives it the illusion that it is a cute and cuddly teddy bear. Although this style requires continuous maintenance, it is great for all seasons and can be used on a variety of breeds because it protects the skin from extreme heat and cold weather.
Poodle: The versatile styling clips of the Poodle can draw instant attention. To get a show-stopping look for this pooch is easier than most people expect. A fashionable, yet classic look for this French breed is The Town and Country Clip. The Town and Country Clip allows the face, neck area, wide belly band, feet, and base of tail to be shaved closely. The rest of the hair is left fluffy and scissored into shape. The edges of its coat are curved. This style needs regular attention, but is an excellent choice for the winter season because the hair helps conserve heat.
Yorkshire Terrier: The Yorkie is a favorite amongst dog owners who enjoy a long-haired toy breed that requires regular grooming attention. The Full Coat is a style that owners usually employ when showing their dogs in competition. In this clip, the coat will be allowed to grow to its full and natural length. The hair on top of its head will be secured with a rubber band forming what is called a top knot. Definitely a look for the doggie diva or divo, the Full Coat demands the most maintenance.
The Teddy Bear Cut, Town and Country Clip, and the Full Coat are all manageable clips that are commonly used to style our furry friends. Although these grooms can be time consuming, your dog will love every stare it gets and so will you.
