I am wondering if any of you have pictures of a spoo without a perfect groom job. lol. you all keep them so beautifully groomed. My husband doesn't think he would like a standard because he says he doesn't like the long noses, however, he says he really likes the labradoodles/goldendoodles he has seen. I told him that you don't have to keep the face shaved down you can do a teddy bear face. I tried to google ungroomed poodle, but could only find like rescue dogs full of mats or dirty. So please if you have something I could show him, share on here!

by the way, I love the perfectly groomed poodle. I do Jazzy's feet face sanitary every other week. I just want him to see there are other options.

If he like the doodles, pull those pictures because beside a poodle they look very similar with their face hair long. My BF planned to do this very thing with Olie and now he loves the shaved face. When I did a search i did find this picture I couldn't resist putting it up, lol.

Sounds like hubby needs some serious education about "doodles." Try googling "teddy bear" and "panda" clip. If you have a library, you might consider looking for Shirley Kalstone's book on Poodle grooming. (If you're dead set on a Poodle you might even buy it.) There are several pics of dog w/ out clipped faces or mustaches. Also check out the German clip, the face is shaved (can have a mustache though) but it's a more manly clip. Not that the girls don't look great in it too.

Make sure you tell your husband that labs and goldens both have long noses so goldendoodles and labradoodles have the long noses as well.

Heres a few pics I pulled online. I hope your husband realizes that poodles have a variety of looks that you guys can go with. I would stay away from a doodle and get a standard. Most people cannot tell the difference from a doodle and a unshaved standard poodle...look wise. However, you usually know what your getting with a purebred dog vs a poodle/lab/golden cross.

Ha. I'm your woman.

My husband begs me not to cut Flip like a poodle. I included some fluffy pics and some shaved pics. :)

Two more, the naughty look, and one rare shaved face pic.

Just be prepared to be asked constantly what kind of doodle he is.

Hmm, I can't get it to post the naughty pic, oh well. :)

I would never get a doodle. I would only want a spoo that's why I'm trying to explain it to him. I realize that pretty much all larger dogs have long noses, I told him poodles are only so noticeable b/c they are usually shaved so close. I'm sure he'll let me do what I want, the no shedding things kind of wins out over all else. lol.

I would never get a doodle either, but people always always always think that a poodle with out a traditional cut is a doodle.

I thought I'd prepare you ahead of time if you get a standard poodle and keep him/her in a cut like mine. :)

Yes, just Google Teddy-bear cut and go to images .

I know of a girl who groomed her black standard somewhat as Bichon but modified, of course.

Actually , you can clip your poodle any way you like !!!!

We have all standards and even with the shaven faces have been asked several times if they are golden/labra/doodles!! If their faces were not shaven, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. All doodles have long noses. Poodle personality is pretty much guaranteed....the doodles are not predictable at all.

I would definitely go with the pure poodle. Tell your husband that you are more guaranteed about personality and hair type/quality and you are not promoting these crosses. Why spend the same amount of money on a cross breed that you would on a pure bred that you cannot guarantee if the pup will have the poodle or the golden/lab temperament/body type/hair type/hair length.

If he likes the look of the lab/golden doodle look, well, a poodle that is left fuzzy, has the same type of look as a doodle with a poodle coat. Here are some pics of pups that are natural, if that is the look he is wanting.
