Can they swim? Moose can't w/out his life vestHI chris - I try to keep them short in summer because they go in the pool. right now they are short - I just cut them with an andis 7FC - whatever that is lol - #10 is the closer cut. The only place they ever get matted is the ear hair. The minis get matted anywhere - their hair is different - not as curly. Teddy is the most curly and he is really easy to groom. Here is picture of the standard wet from the pool and their hair is longer. I use a rake then.
