I'm going to be taking Atticus in to get his hair cut in a couple weeks but I have no idea what I want to do! I've looked on google, but everything that comes up are crazy cuts and crazy colors and I dont want that. I'm also not a fan of shaved ears on toy poodles, although I think standards look adoable with it. I want his hair pretty long since its going to be cold soon. Could you post pictures of different haircuts?

This is his cut right now, I really like it like this but want something different.

Once his face grows out I think he's one of the few poodles that would make an adorable teddy bear face. I usually hate it on poodles but he'd be adorable.

If this is your first poodle, and you want to keep him long, you MUST MUST MUST brush, AND comb him a couple times a week or you'll end up with a matted living mess. Many owners think running a brush over the coat is enough, but with their hair so curly you're only brushing the tips.. not useful, so after brushing to seperate the hairs, get a metal comb and go straight to the skin everywhere; legs, neck, belly, bum, ears, top knot, and tail.

I personally love toys in a lamb cut, it makes them look so bouncy!

I don't know, I think he looks really cute the way he is lol. :) He looks adorable with all that fluff around him, I'm glad you want to keep some of it and not shave him down.

I think he would look cute if you got the groomer to shave his face clean and maybe clean up his topknot a little. You could also grow out the hair on his feet and have them rounded off into "teddy bear" feet. I always thought they looked cute on toys- makes 'em look like little stuffed toys haha.


Or you could just have them clean him up in general, scissor the fur and put him into a pretty clip like this:

That way he's still fluffy but is in a different cut and will look very handsome. :)

That's exactly what I was thinking as in the 2nd picture. It keeps the fluffy puppy look just clean up the face, feet and tail a bit.

I think Atticus was born for the donut mustache and everytime I see his pic I think Dutch clip. It's not that common anymore, but I really like it on smaller dogs. His tail looks perfect, don't let them mess w/ it too much.

His cuteness it too much for words, I would say just a tiny bit of scissoring to make him look even, but absolutely none of at all!
And tell them do not touch his tail, because too many poodles have funny looking tails as there is hardly any hair on it.
It is perfect at the moment.

He has adorable long hair, I think a teddy bear cut would be super cute on him. Perry is in a teddy bear clip, and I love how cute and fluffy he is all the time. I'm not sure if he is one of the poodles that looks good in a teddy bear cut, but that's how I like him. Plus, their fuzzy faces are just so sweet!
