Ok, I hope I won't get too much discrimination here, but my pup, Chloe isn't full poodle, she's half toy poodle, half jack russell.
But what better place to ask poodle questions :)

So is there something I can use to enhance Chloe's curls? A spray or shampoo or conditioner? Or maybe a way to dry it? I just want to get her nice and curly for dog shows

Here's a couple of pics, she's just turned 5 months old. These pics don't really show her coat very well, but it is curly on her back

She is a cutie !

I can tell that her coat seems to be more on the jack Russell side. I don't think there is anything you can do to make her hair curly. Her coat could change once she gets older but IMO it looks like it will be straight and slightly wavy like a terriers coat.

That's sorta what I thought too.

I agree with Roxy, it looks like she has more of a terrier coat. The only thing you can really do to enhance any curls or waves she may have in her coat is NOT to blow dry her after a bath. The blow dry is what makes poodle hair straight so if you just let one air dry it would be pretty permed looking :)

thanks everyone :) you're all really friendly!
Her fur has been getting thicker as she's gotten older, but it seems to be flattening, its not as sticky up and all over the place as it was :giggle:

If she has jack russell in her then I don't think anything will enhance her curls. She looks like she has a jack russell coat, which is pretty bristle like and won't curl. So once she looses her puppy coat she might have more of a jack russell coat.

Isn't she a cutie! I love her little face. :)

I would try a leave in condtioner and pat her dry, then kind of squeeze her hair to make waves...but I think everyone is right, she's going to be wavy.

She's cute.:) I agree with everyone else that she probably won't curl up if she's not now. What dog shows are you taking her to, I'm curious.

I cant really see enough of him......if you can send more pics. If he has curls they may be more relaxed in between the baby poodles and JR. Sure is a cute pup.

He's a cutie but probably not going to curl.

I'm not so sure you can show a poodle/jrt mix..?

In any case he's a cute pet.

I have a jrt mix as well... the most curl she gets is a crescent moon shape on the longest pieces of hair. They tend to have really flat coats and thick hair, I've learned.

Regardless, Chloe is adorable, and I bet she's so fun!

Wow thanks so much for all the replies.
The dog shows that I will be taking her to are just small town/village dog shows. She can't enter many of the categories, but we have fun meeting other doggy friends.
I got to take her to her first one this year (it was the last dog show for the summer), and she won first prize in the fancy dress competition. She couldn't enter many of the categories at this one, it wasn't very long, but each of the shows differ.

I'll get another snap of her curls/waves in a little while.
Regardless, Chloe is adorable, and I bet she's so fun!
She is very fun, keeps me active lol. And she's a quick learner :)

She's cute! Does she she like a terrier or do you have to get her clipped often like a poodle?

Like a PPer said, it's the blow dry that makes my poodle less curly and more fluffy, if we just let it dry on her own after it rains or something like that, then it's curly.
