Default A divided house

Groomer did a clean face for the first time in a while. We are split down the middle. My daughter and husband love it and my son and I hate it. Before and after photos attached. The before photos are a little too shaggy. But the after photos look a whole new doggy. Not our baby... I hope we can find a cut we all like.

I always like a clean face on poodles. I think your pup looks great.

He is beautiful. I do like the clean shaven face. I didn't think I would but its actually my preference now. I don't like when my boys face starts to grow in or his feet either.

I also prefer the clean look. Shaggy look is fine, but I find it very un-hygienic and every time I try it, I end up going back to a clean face because of the food that gets caught in the hair. You donít even see it until you do, itís unnoticeable, but then when you do it stinks and itís disgusting...

Once you get used to the new look, he will be your baby again. I think it's just the shock of seeing a dog that you don't recognize, and not necessarily that you don't like the look. Wait and see what you think once you get used to it.

I think he looks wonderful! I was a fuzzy face fan too and really hesitated about shaving Jessie's face. Now that I did, I'm never going back. Cleanup is so much easier, and I love that she can take a drink and not have a fuzzy wet mouth all day.

Beautiful looking baby!! This happened to me with Norman. Had the cute shaggy face and I loved it! Took him to the groomer and got his face shaved... I never want to go back to the fuzzy face! LOVED the shaved look, so sophisticated!! My whole family hated it but me!! You can always grow it out :-)

She is such a beautiful, high quality dog. I think she looks cute either way, but a clean face is definitely my preference!

I love the clean face! But I'm heavily biased. I like clean face so much that I do the FFS trim weekly so they don't get scruffy. I feel like the more hair you let grow the less you can see the adorable dog underneath. I'm fine with hair elsewhere but I love the clean face. They are so expressive.

So cute, Both look fab! We are the same! Me and my daughter like clean but the OH and sons like a fluffy teddy bear face. I noticed she got a lot more attention out on walks when she was in a teddy trim. I like change her trims now n again. Think I might try a moustache next.
