I am just looking for ideas on a better hairstyle for my standard poodle. Unfortunately, she does not have a curly coat. She is 20 months old, so I’m sure this is her adult coat. Her hair is wavy, it does not curl anywhere, and she will have mats within a week of visiting the groomer, especially on the top of her head, her neck, her chest, and her legs. Wait, that’s basically everywhere. Yep. So, I’m over trying to keep her mat free when it is truly impossible. I have been keeping her in a standard puppy cut, with clean feet and face and longer ears. I am open to any other ideas on styles that would be easier to maintain with a wavy coated standard that has mats from Hell. Yes she is registered, and no I don’t care if she isn’t perfect. She’s mine. And no I wouldn’t recommend the breeder at all.
