I love the puppy look but for me they look more like puppies with shaved faces. Otherwise it's just like any other teddy bear cut dog. With the shaved face I can see the soft puppy face. I like to keep shorter plush ears, not severe like german cut but more like the same length as topknot. It's quite a puppyish look. I also haven't been shaving the base of the tail. So even my friends who weren't keen on "poodle" cuts have loved the cut Misha's in. Everybody has a different viewpoint. But there's nothing like giving kisses to a freshly shaved puppy snoot!

Such beautiful pictures in this thread!

GettingReady, I have a similar issue. I prefer shaved and my husband prefers fluffy. Here's the thing, though: I do the grooming, every poodle need to learn to accept grooming, and puppyhood is the best time to start. So guess how short the hair will be on Violet when she gets home next week at 9 weeks old? Shaved. Once she becomes an adult I may wait longer (sometimes) between face shaves. Our other dog, Navy, is a poodle mix and he wears a donut mustache all the time due to a wonky bite. It is his best look, and I think it is adorable on him. It does require regular cleaning and combing, though. After a nap his face can look dented- funny but not cute.

Buck came to us with a clean face, and several FFT’s under his belt. That was we were used to. He’s got a big coat and after his second blowout, DH said the groomer’s made him look fat. After that, I told them to keep it shortish on the body, some top knot, fluffy ears and poof tail which is plenty poodley and SO easy to live with. I admire fluffy faces, mustaches and fancy grooms, but that’s doesn’t work for our lifestyle. The cool thing about poodles is you have so many groom choices. They are fine looking dogs underneath that fur and that’s the most important thing

So true! My mpoo is 9 months and had about 3 different hairstyles. I intend on trying all the trims I can

Your puppy's clean face is adorable! I think a clean face is so much more expressive. That said, I also live in a house divided and therefore have a shaggy faced poodle. Similar to Peggy, it was my husband's one condition when he agreed to get a poodle. I'm hoping to wear him down one of these days 🙂 I actually love the way he looks when my husband first grooms him. It's a fuzzy but not too shaggy face. It's 4 weeks later though that my husband thinks the shag is adorable but I'm begging him to give him another face trim.

I think I lack imagination about hair -- my own and Noodle's! I see all these cute pictures on Pinterest and on here and I cannot picture how they will look on Noodle and I don't know how to describe what I want to the groomer. That much said, everyone in the house eventually gets to a hairstyle I like so we will get there with Noodle too. Right now I'm trying to focus on what amount of grooming helps him get used to grooming without making him sour on the whole thing.

I sort of cheat. My husband likes fluffy face. I didn't like shaved face until I got Mr. Layne. I need to see his eyes. When I train with him it's really important. So I cheat. I use a #10 blade on his muzzle. I trim the hair on top of his head so it blends with the ears. Under the jaw I shave backwards with the ten, on top of muzzle I shave with the grain of the hair. So shaved face... but not like a #30 blade would do. But it's a doable compromise that my husband doesn't mind as much as naked-face.

But I like the look of the lamb clip. I think that's what I'm going to try to work toward with Mr. Layne. Thank you for the picture of that Vita. I really like how those two white Poodles look

I will give you a tip from a long time groomer and I have two spoos.

You will like what your used to. If you're pups face was shaved every week, that would be normal and your cute little boy.

You can get it shaved a little longer, that way it will grow a little fuzzy, and by getting it done more often it won't get too fuzzy

Another option is to get a second one and do to different looks!

Hi Itza! So nice to see you and photos again of your gorgeous poodles! I hadn't seen the one before where they're at the bridge, and your grooming is always spectacular. Hope you post more photos when possible.
