My puppy seems to have a LOT of hair, much more than my last Standard poodle did. The breeder had groomed and clipped her including her feet several times before I got her at 12 weeks, so luckily she is calm and good about brushing (actually seems to like it!). The breeder told me to have her groomed again at 14 weeks, which I did. I took her to a professional and they said she did very well. I have been brushing her every few days since.
Here it is only 2 weeks later and her hair is already a lot longer- she looks like a giant cotton ball! I can't afford to have her groomed every two weeks (have budgeted for once a month), but her hair seems so huge and thick! LOL
There is a poodle at the dog park where I go that only has to be trimmed every few months and even then his hair doesn't look very long. His hair is tight curls, very coarse, grows super slow with a tail with hardly any hair.
I know Bonnie has puppy hair, but her face is already covered in soft hair. Should I just brush her out like I have been doing or should I ask them to cut her shorter next time? I like all her hair and don't really want her to look scrawny, but I can't imagine how big her hair will be in another 2 weeks! I guess I will find out.
I am used to having an adult poodle without enough hair, so all this thick hair is new to me. She is cute and cuddly this way, just wild looking!
How often do you brush, groom, clip, scissors your puppies that have a lot of hair? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
